Last week was Marching Band Camp.
8am to 8pm, EVERY day.
These kids worked HARD!
At the end of the performance on the last day, Rooney said "I can't believe I did that!" I asked her what she meant. She told me that in years previous, when she would go with me to chaperone, she would watch the older kids learning the shows, and she would think to herself "I will NEVER be able to do all that!"
Well, she did.
And they had fun, too.
