Month of Thanksgiving – Day 8

I am thankful for the Tennessee High School Mighty Viking Band. Despite the tragedy of last Friday, those kids played their hearts out at the game tonight. It has been heartwarming to see how they have clung to each other to get through these tough times. Sam’s favorite thing about school is band, and he is going to miss it when he graduates.

Tonight was Senior Night for the band. It was a great honor to escort Sam on the field as he was recognized as a senior. After the game, the seniors went out to Red Lobster with Mr. Semones and the band staff. Some of us parents went, too, and I think we had as much fun as the kids…if not more.

Here is a picture of the senior band members, taken before the game. (If you need help picking out Sam, he is the boy on the far left.)
