Weekend Lens | First Marching Band Contest

This weekend it was all about experiencing Ian's first HS marching band festival. Mick and he were up and out the door by 6:15AM to drop him off at school in time to load the bus for the festival. Then Mick, Ethan, my mom, and I drove over to the festival.

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. Low 70s, blue skies, no clouds. Excited kiddos, boosters, band directors, parents. The excitement definitely was in the air.

In pre-lims, they placed 4th and made it to the finals.
In finals, they placed 2nd only to a much bigger, much more financially backed school. We were so proud of all of the kids. So proud of their perseverance, their dedication, their unity.

Their program is called Wolf | Blow the House Down. A theatrical performance with cool props and fantastic color guard uniforms, really cool musical movements and artistic marching patterns.
Here are just  a few pics from their prelim performance:

Color Guard earned Outstanding Color Guard Performance and the flutist earned Outstanding Solo Performance. :) :) :)

Our Ian is standing on the 25yd line (cymbals) 3rd in from back (top) of picture.
Mick helped all day with the props and he and Ian arrived home at 2 am THIS morning! Needless to say they slept in.

Hope y'all had a great weekend yourselves. Today was all about catching up on domestic goddess duties! LOL
Back soon with a scrappy layout or two. :)
