Last night was our son's last concert of the school year and the one where some awards are given and seniors are recognized. The concert was very good. There was SO much improvement in the sub-nonvarsity band (the nice way of saying the bottom band).
One of the things that the band directors did was get together and award prizes to the parents who helped with the Battle of Flowers Parade. (See my previous post about that.) One dad was named best marcher and his prize was a pair of purple flip-flops. Another dad was named best medical person and his prize was a small first-aid kit, which was very funny because he's a nurse. I won the prize for best hat. Guess what the award was? A purple foam visor! What a hoot! There were a few other prizes, one for thirstiest parent and another for the parent needing the most fanning. The other really good one was the most enthusiastic parent award. The band director asked if there was any question about who won that one. Of course everyone yelled, "Buck!"
If you want to see the winning hat, check it out in this post.
I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend.
