I didn't mean to leave you hanging about Hannah's band contest on October 29th. The band did well in the District/Regional Marching Contest and advanced to the Area Contest. The band played and marched well and advanced to the Area Finals where they tied for 4th place. No, it didn't qualify us to go to state but we are still very proud of the band.
If you remember, Rachel was the Drum Major last year. She promised several band members that if they made it to the Area Marching Contest, she would be there. True to her incredible nature, she kept her promise and traveled with her daddy and I to watch her sister and the band march. It was a glorious day to spend together. I snapped this photo when Hannah saw her sister was home. No, it's not the best picture I have ever taken; I took it through my car's windshield, but I love it! That is pure sister joy right there!
