"Band Day" at The University of Kentucky Football Game
Eighth Grade Band Night at The Scott County High School Football Game
It's football season again and that means one thing for the Manwaring family...Marching Band!
Eighth Grade Band Night is always a good time during football season. It is when the three middle school bands join the high school band as they play in the stand, march on the field during the half time show, and mingle while eating eating pizza afterwards.
Merinda (in the stands) was excited to be apart of that, especially since her brother is drum major.
But sadly, this is the first and last time she'll have the opportunity to be with Breck in the marching band since he will be graduating this year, and she won't be in marching band until next year.
Even Brad stayed home long enough to make it to 8th Grade Band Night.
As you can see, Brad has a little fan club of his own--kids from church.
In fact, this was the Georgetown Ward section, and most of their children are in the marching band.
Except for Randi, who we also enjoyed watching as she cheered.
The big half-time show finally came with the high-schoolers marching out first in blue t-shirts,
and then the 8th Graders lining up in front with grey t-shirts.
Merinda, Nikara, and Julianna were three 8th grade flute players from the Georgetown Ward.
The 8th graders mostly marched in place while playing, which still takes a little getting used to if you've never done it before.
Breck then made the transformation to "Twisted Sister" (the wig) as the band played Come On Feel The Noise.
Merinda getting into the spirit of things.
Ethan (front left) and Luke (back right) are two more 8th grade band members from the Georgetown Ward.
Merinda had a lot of fun visiting with all of her friends from the different middle schools.
And really that's why my kids have enjoyed band so much through the years - great friends, good fun, and lasting memories!
