One of the things I really like about the girls' middle school band program is that they take a yearly trip to a band competition. This year they went to Louisville, KY where they visited Kentucky Down Under, Kentucky Kingdom, Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger factory.
The brunette twin texted Saturday evening to let me know that the band won "Best Middle School Band" at the competition.. It was an exciting development considering that only part of the band went on the trip. They were excited and proud and tired.
We were happy for the class. They worked hard during their after school practices. The students came together pretty quickly to form a pretty good band. It was another sign that hard work pays off, even though they don't realize it yet.
