I subbed today for a MS/HS band teacher.
The high school concert band went outside for marching practice. I, of course, know nothing at all about it, so she left a note leaving two students in charge of practice. They did a GREAT job, I was really impressed, and told them so. The band did a really good job too, once they got focused. They were so good, in fact, that I'd almost be willing to pay and see a varsity football game, just to watch their half-time show. But then I think, "I got paid to see it today. Twice. That's good enough."
I got to watch the first 50 minutes of UP during all the middle school classes. That movie really has a sad beginning.
