ah, band...

my kids were *so* excited to perform tonight at the football game.

it felt so gratifying. Even if their performance would have ended up crappy, the attitude and motivation was overpowering. And their performance was far from crappy. They kicked ass.

It's for reasons like this that i love teaching.

I don't want the season to end. There's only one month left. And it will probably be my last with this group.

When the time comes, i'll write more about it. but i will say that the success of this program is a bittersweet feeling. it doesn't even have to do with the fact that the program has become successful after the four years it took me to help establish this program to the point where it is now. It has more to do with the kids. I love these kids to death. They're my friends, my children, my family. I want to see them graduate. i want to see them grow. I want to be there for all of them whenever they need me.

And false low self-esteem aside, i know they love me too.


The last rehearsal is going to be difficult for me. The kids don't know that the staff is probably leaving after this year. i'm waiting until the last rehearsal when i give them their staff-free run through to tell them.

I shouldn't be thinking about this now. there's still a month left.

*shakes head free of wallowing*
