Rose Parade, here we come!


Sousaphones, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Jacob's marching band from Lakota West High School has been invited to the 2008 Rose Parade in Pasadena CA. They're marching every day and he goes to band camp tomorrow for a week. It's a huge honor to be invited and a first for this state champ marching band. For us (the Bogarts), it has special meaning. Johannah was born in Pasadena and Jon and I lived there when we first met. I've been to numerous Rose Parades.

What will make this year even better is if UCLA goes on the run it's supposed to this fall, beating SC at the end of the season, and landing itself in the Rose Bowl!! Come on Bruins!!

I love this photo because of the way the red track reflects in the tuba horns. To see Jacob's sax section, you can click on his name at the top.

Waah!! "My" band camp has come and gone this year, and practice is in full swing. It's been four full years out of band, and I still miss it!!

Fun shot, and congrats to all!

Very exciting! I like the reflections in the tubas, too.

Very cool! Will you all come out to CA for the event? (she selfishly asks....)

Oh, how perfect for you guys! I mean, you ARE going, aren't you?! When is it, anyway? Gone are the days when I followed college bowl games!

We aren't going. Unfortunately. it seems ridiculous not to go, but Johannah will just be back from her first quarter at OSU and it is the most expensive time of year to travel out west. We're already paying quite a bit for Jacob to go (he's raising money to pay for his ticket and has got about half, but there are other things too, like hotel etc.). so it seemed when we analyzed it that we couldn't take everyone and we didn't want to leave Johannah home alone on her first break from college.

Once we really looked at the costs involved on every side, we decided to not go. Sometimes I think it was the wrong decision.
