Friday Night Football 2008

So last Friday night was the first football game of the season. This also means that it is the bands first performance with an audience other than parents. They did a practice run last week on Tuesday night, but that wasn't like the energy at a football game.

I decided to be more active in the band this year. I showed up at the band hall at 5:00 with Benjamin. He is helping out as a Band Aid again this year. It was very interesting and exciting to see how things work in the hussle and bussle of getting ready for a game. The energy in the room was electrifying! I am really glad I went because Alyssa was a bundle of nerves getting ready for her first game.

They did an amazing job, too! I love walking over to the home side when we are at an away game and watching from the top of the stands amid all of the opossing parents. It's exciting to see how much the crowd anticipates a performance from the L.D. Bell Band. The kids were so proud of their performance, among some criticisms, which is typical for the first performance and the standard that they set for themselves.

This is my wonderful 17 year old son, Michael.

Ben and his friend being Band Aids.

My sweet daughter, Alyssa, and her friend, Kate having fun before their first game.

This spells L D Bell. They do a Spirit Show after they perform their show.

GO BELL! we won the game 35-33 against Haltom, too!!
