Another Marching Band Season has flown by! It is bittersweet for our family, as we so enjoy the fellowship with the band kids and parents, and enjoy seeing Allie in her "element"! On the other hand, we will be enjoying the slower pace!
Allie's band competed at the State Competition yesterday in Chandler, AZ, and received a rating of SUPERIOR! I'm so dang proud of these kids! This is a picture of Allie (2nd from the left) with her Senior Clarinet friends (Allie's a junior). She is going to miss them so much next year, and she's going to gasp when she sees I shared this photo on my blog! It was so-o-o hot yesterday, and this photo was taken after they performed. They are all hot and sweaty in their wool marching uniforms .... I think it was in the 90's yesterday? I never understood why Marching Bands are so popular in Arizona ... those wool uniforms are hardly ever appropriate for our weather!
After the competition, we joined some of our band friends for vietnamese food at Cyclo in Chandler. WOW! I had never tried vietnamese food, and it was out-of-this-world delicious! If you're ever in Chandler, AZ, you've GOT to try it! Just be prepared for the owner's unusual humor! You can find Cyclo's website HERE.
