I loved marching band in high school. I still love the pep band and marching band at the football games. It made the football game itself more tolerable back when I had no clue what a first down, field goal or point after was. When Taylor wanted to take drum lessons I was really proud. We gave him private drum lessons for Christmas in 4th grade. We were happy when he wanted to continue playing percussion in the middle school band and that he made the drumline. And I was really excited when he mentioned he’d be marching in the Homecoming parade. I love parades – for the marching bands. And I love marching bands largely for the cadence. And Taylor… Well, he kept a great cadence, even while he gave us a wave, a smile and a little wiggle as he marched on by.
