My daughters band had a competition today, they won 6 awards today. They took second for for drum line (open class) first for color guard, and sweepstakes (which means they scored higher than much bigger bands) for high music, visual, high visual effects, and band. Now I owe them all icecream.

That is great. it's always nice to see kids excelling in their activities. Music education, whether choral or instruments, is vital, IMO, for kids. Why do you have to buy the ice cream? I remember when I was in 6th or 7th grade, my chorus class got 2nd in a contest, and the teacher bought us all milkshakes, but 20 kids isn't 100 kids! :)

Guard has their own season in the winter, when band is doing concert. They perform with out band to recorded music they do a fantastic job.

I told them if they brought me music sweeps I would buy them all ice cream. They did even better and brought me visual and the entire tournament sweeps. We (the boosters) will buy big tubs of ice cream and toppings and bring it out after practice on Tuesday. Next weekend is their big competition of the season and then championships.
One of the kids said "mom if we win championships do we get pizza and icecream??"

They are undefeated this year for their class. We are a small band so taking sweeps for visual is a huge deal it's hard to beat the larger bands in visual because they have much more to work with.

Yep, it was a lot of fun, even when I broke my nose.
