November 12

Last Saturday Teen had the privilege of going to the Pitt vs Syracuse game and playing with the Pitt band during the opening parade and half time.

This is them waiting around before entering the field. That's Teen with the trumpet looking right at us.
Did I mention that Pitt uses Heinz Field for their games? The Very Same Field as the Pittsburgh Steelers!
I can only guess which one he is from this angle. Hubby was one of the chaperone's that day and got as close as he could to get picks. We don't have a camera that takes really good close ups.
They lost half of the band for the trip that day. Our Cross Country Team qualified for States and it just happened to fall on the same day. Many of our band kids are also in Cross Country.
Oh well, there is always next year. But the kids that did go really enjoyed it. They had a blast and Teen was so excited when he got home. He said it was intimidating but also cool playing in front of all of those people. He is used to our little high school field that maybe has a couple hundred people on a Friday night, not the couple thousand that were there.
