Friday Night Lights!

It's that time of the year... marching season is here again!
Wahoo!!! The excitement, the kids cheering. rocking and dancing in the stands, the music playing, the uniforms & instruments looking flashy, and everyone pumped up and ready to take the field. It's a great way to spend our Friday nights and I enjoy photographing the fun.

I think one of most favorite thing is right before going on at half-time the kids gather 'round the director for a pep talk. Then Ian hand's his Bible (which he always keeps with him, in his pocket), to the Drum Major and the entire band prays together. Ian says some of the kids now call him 'Bible Man' awesome is that! (And quite a switch from his usual 'Beans' nickname.) Our Drum Major is a great kid and wants to be a preacher one day. I can't think of a better bunch of kids for Ian to be associated with. I'm not saying they are perfect...teens are teens! But I think most of them are on the right path...and have kids like Ian & David to help lead the way,... altho' Ian would never admit to being any kind of a leader. I guess God is using him despite himself. *g*

God Bless the LSHS Marching Band, and their awesome director, Mr. McC.

Wow, I'm glad Ian's growing up to be a good kid! They sure are rare these days.
