In a few days, we’ll be taking our Wind Ensemble to Chicago then Indianapolis for the Bands of America National Concert Band Festival. I’m really excited about being able to go and even conduct the band! Getting this trip together has been a little stressful but now that it’s here, I’m just anxious to get going. I’ve been to both Chicago and Indianapolis but never during this time of year so I’m concerned about not having enough warm clothes to take. Luckily, we’ll be indoors quite a bit so I should think about taking things to layer with. While in Indianapolis, BOA has asked that everyone (kids included) dress business casual so no jeans are allowed. Coming from Austin, that’s actually kind of hard to pack with! I will wear jeans more often than not, even to work, but I have dress pants so I’m definitely safe.
Okay, enough with this brain dump. I really do have a lot to do before we leave but I do want to get in some “me” time…these few days before the trip being my Spring Break and all. I still have laundry and packing to do, as well as clean up the house so I don’t come back to a dump. So, I hope that if you get some Spring Break time, you take time to enjoy yourselves. Drink one for me on St. Patrick’s Day and have a great week!
