Marching band season is upon us

School started last week and the kids had been in band camp for three weeks prior to that. The show looks to be promising - hope they do well and rack up the nice trophies like they did last year.

Our school will be hosting a competition this year, which is something new for most everyone (apparently we hosted an upper state competition which is different than a regular competition one year but I wasn't involved in the band during that time).

So being that both my younguns are in the marching band (Hailie is in the colorguard this year again (she played tuba last year and it ruined her shoulder) and Benjamin is in the pit or frontline) that means football season is upon us. We had our first football game this past Friday (played against my alma mater) and lost but they still have pictures taken and posted in the local newspaper. Here is my son on the pit cart as they are coming off the field (and doesn't he look happy?)

Let me know what you think. See you all in the postings - E :)

Oh, Elysabeth! Your children are so beautiful!!! Just looking at them reminds me of sunny days on a beach somewhere.

Congrats on both being in band; it's so important for kids to be involved in organized activities like that.

Good luck to all this year!

Aww, look at him! He looks so happy! Aww. It makes me happy just to see him grinning in that pic.

What a giant drum! Very cool. Isn't it every kid's dream to just have one of those giant drums and go marching around banging on it? lol.

I'm sure he'll do well in band, what with so much enthusiasm. :)
