All-Star Marching Band

Missy and her BFF managed to qualify for Idaho’s All-Star Marching Band, and spent three days last week in an Army-style camp where they learned to march, ate at the mess hall, slept in the barracks, played their instruments, and met teens from all over Idaho.   They were also treated to a day at the water park and the hard-sell for the Army Marching Band (Have your college paid for!  Get paid to play! No foreign tours! Play in the Rose Bowl parade and at Disneyland! Travel for free on standby! Enjoy a nine-week boot camp learning to shoot rifles!). 

We went to watch them march in the parade at Weiser on Saturday–they looked and sounded great, and it was a very proud moment:
