What a long day bad comps are! We got to school at 6:30am, and then got back to school at 10:30pm. It was cold, it rained for about 5 hrs. Our poor band had their field performance in the rain too :( They were 2 time defending champs at this band day, so were feeling the pressure. They took 2nd place in parade, guard, and drumline and 1st place in field...and took home Grand Champion again! Our 8th grade marching band did well too...despite only getting to practice a few times they placed 3rd (they only do parade)



Celyna had a blast, seeing some of the other schools was cool too.

Wow that does sound a bit like overkill...our last schools were like that. In a way it stinks because there are always parents who can help out sometimes but not all the time....but you school seems to be a lot more competitive about it all. We haven't done any parades, they'll be doing the homecoming parade for the university here in town, but we're pretty rural so there aren't a lot of them to do around here. They're doing a big one in the Spring though...they were accepted for the Cherry Blossom Festival
