Wordless Wednesday: Girls Gotta March

{here are my 17yo and 14yo daughters at their marching band’s “sneak preview” for parents the other night. my 17yo marches piccolo and is the co-leader of the band’s flute section. my 14yo plays oboe, but oboe doesn’t march. she learned to play flute, but didn’t earn a primary spot marching flute, so they told her she would march prop. BUT…she started marching better than some of the trumpets, so they gave her a primary spot marching trumpet. not playing trumpet, mind you, just marching it. so she’ll play flute in the stands, march trumpet on the field, and play oboe during concert season. i love it! i also love how silly they were when I asked them to hold up their instruments, and how the 17yo is in denial about her younger sister being taller than her.}
