Today we went to the 4th of July Parade. Timpview High School Marching band was the second marching band of the parade (right after Provo High School).
Pst…. I was the Drum Major at Timpview High School 11 years ago… They have the same uniforms today as the day we got them 14 years ago. I became a tad nostalgic for those days in high school. I knew someone from almost every band marching (shockingly enough, I may have had a crush on several of them). They annouced MY name as the band went past, people yelled MY name as I struted my Drum Major bravado in front of them (ok, and my co-drummajor’s as well, but let’s not go there)…. I really had a great experience in band, and I’m fairly sure it’s the reason I allow my husband to do so much for it. I know how much those kids have riding on the line. I really felt like our director had our hearts has #1 in his book… we would’ve done anything for him… so I have a pretty good idea of why kids love to come to our house to play Settlers of Catan.
Anyway, I am really trying to keep this on a positive note, about how great band was for me. I also have a really hard time as Timpview goes past… and let’s just say I didn’t go searching out their director to give him a big hug. Instead, I had tropical snow tigers blood all over my pants, and the great thing is I enjoyed the parade today just as much as I did 11 years ago.
