Proud band mommy!

Today I'm taking just a moment to say congratulations to our awesome marching band! On Saturday, we took first place at a big marching band invitational. This was a competition featuring the best bands from around the Midwest, so it's a really big deal for us to win. Needless to say, our kids are very excited, and so are the band parents (most of whom are former band geeks themselves, now living vicariously through their kids)! :-)

Our show this year is music from The Lion King. It's a real crowd pleaser everywhere we play, even at Friday night football games.

The collage (click on it to bigify) includes a couple of shots from the band's performance plus our drumline, which is made up of a fun group of kids. Daughter plays snare and as section leader, she has done a great job this year keeping things on track. Spouse coaches the drumline, which means that at our house, we do marching band 24/7!

This first place finish was actually our second invitational win of the season. We have one more big competition weekend to go, then marching band will be over for another year.

We are so excited to have been part of the best season in our marching band's history!
