Marching band camp is all about making connections. You need to connect with your band mates, the music, and of course the drill patterns.
I life has been pretty much dedicated to band camp this week. I volunteered to help with handing out lunches (during the second full week the band boosters offer a different lunch each day for the kids to purchase), sit outside and keep an eye out for heat exhaustion, and help fit kids in the uniforms. As a result I've barely been home.
But all the hard work and time spent is well worth it when I see my boy making all the right connections.
