Giants Stadium got canceled. Or, rather, postponed to a weeknight, which our band declined to attend because it was a school night and the directors had conflicts. However, they added a practice this week, so JC has had band practice every day this week. Including today, and an away football game tonight. The weather has been beautiful, however - but the forecast tonight is for heavy rain, continuing into tomorrow.
He has an all-day competition tomorrow. Of course.
It's down near Philadelphia, so we're hoping that either the rain will miss there or will have already moved through by the time they have to compete. They kids have been warned to bring dry underthings, because they WILL be practicing tomorrow morning, even if it's raining.
Sunday is the State Championships. Forecast is for beautiful 60 deg. weather. We can hope, right?
We've been enjoying the Funky Winkerbean comic strip this week about the Battle of the Bands (week of October 19-24). We understand now.
One more week of band practice. Two more weekends of competition. Not that I'm counting down or anything...
