wow.

three rehearsals and one more competition weekend, and it's over.

*sigh*

The great thing about this past weekend is that while we didn't place that well, the kids were still so happy. After it was all done, we met on the field, and there were a few down faces, but everyone felt pretty good. And after the staff said what they wanted to, the color guard captain addressed the band and said, "we think you guys deserve more credit than you guys get on this field, so we prepared this for you," and they got in a line and sang and did some quickly put together choreography expressing their love for the band.

and then the band, inspired, sang back at them.

and it compounded from there... more things happened that helped to enforce just how much the entire band loves each other.

it was fucking awesome. no one could take that away from us. it made me proud and happy, and it meant so much more to me than any kind of trophy or number given to us by a bunch of subjective judges that just want to hear big loud bands.
