They Won!

State Champs! The girls are members of the indoor percussion ensemble and yesterday they won the state championship! And, amazingly, this is their first year of competition. They just have an amazing director in Mr. Dunwoody and an amazing band director in Mr. McArthur. They also have had such great support from parents and the band boosters. It has been a FUN, FUN ride!

Here are a few pictures (not very good quality.....but still)

The emotions: worrying about the results....waiting on the score. Sarah looked so nervous.

And then, when they realized they had won!

Mary Beth was further back, but this picture just kinda says it all!
She was so happy! These are definitely tears of joy!

And here are the championships with their daddy!

I learned just how much hard work goes into hosting an event like this (did I mention we were the host school?)!

The band boosters did an awesome job putting it all together, and we all worked really hard ALL DAY yesterday. I was exhausted, and I didn't work as hard as a lot of people. It was great to see everyone working together to cook, to sell, to monitor entrances and exits and parking and practice rooms, to keep hospitality rooms stocked and judges happy. Congratulations to the RHS band boosters for putting on such a successful event. Hope everyone is resting today. I know I am.

So that was my Saturday! Not too shabby, really.
