I took a few moments this cool fall morning to sit and sip coffee on my uber-awesome porch swing. It may be the last chance I have to relax for a while. Today is filled with final preparations for tomorrow’s big marching band “showcase” competition (parade and field show). MusicMan is in the band, and I am tasked with running the concessions tent for 6 hours (plus set up and clean up). I’m thanking God for the blessing of a wonderful co-chair; I’d be drowning without her! And of course, we have volunteers coming in shifts. I’m also thanking God for the weather, cool in the mornings and only mid-70’s midday. PERFECT weather for marching and grilling! I just wish I could watch all the bands compete.
Tonight is the first home game, so it’s football and marching band tonight. I love football…I love music played by enthusiastic teenagers…I love fall…I love wearing sweatshirts again!!
