Up until yesterday, I had campers telling me that "drill this year is more challenging, but MY drill is pretty easy.”
That all changed yesterday with the latest drill update.
Suddenly, they’re forced to scramble to make their dots, shift direction, snap and twist, all while playing the right notes, in tune. And did I mention the song in question is pretty darned fast?
Yeah, marching band ain’t so easy anymore.
But despite the gauntlet laid down by the director’s yesterday, kids still found time to leap THE WALL.
Yes, they were tired last night. I’m sure some of you got texts that reflected that. But they were also pretty darned proud of themselves. They drilled hard and finished in the dark, but they did it.
Achievement. It’s the best self-esteem builder ever.
