No Parade This Year

Finally got the band pictures I ordered of Jazz from this past season’s competitions today:

band1

This one was at the Broken Arrow Invitational in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

band2

This one was taken at the Bands of America competition in St. Louis.

The band didn’t get to march in our city’s Christmas parade today – the wind chill was just too much for any mortal to stand. This makes the second year that the band has canceled marching in our parade. I hope Jazz gets to march in the parade at least once before he graduates!

I was really bummed that it didn’t work out, but after stepping outside and not only being blown away but nearly having my ears iced off, I can understand why the band director made the call.

Oh well. Maybe next year. 😦
