Our marching band competed in another invitational last night and won! This was our third invitational win this fall, making this our most successful season ever. But more important than the trophy was the fact that the kids had been working to achieve higher point scores from the judges at each performance, and yesterday they beat their own goal!
But with all the excitement comes some sadness. This was the final performance of our marching band for the season, and the end of marching band for 31 members of the senior class. No more Friday night football games hanging out in the end zone. No more early morning breakfasts before competition. No more early morning practices in the freezing cold.
Now we move on to warmer (inside) activities, like jazz band, concert band, and show choir. All of those are great fun, but nothing can replace the magic of marching band season. There is nothing like it.
