Just got back from WDW with the band! We actually did not perform, this time. We had to have 75 students to march because that was the first estimate that Mr. Smith gave, but not that many people were willing or able to go on the trip. But Mr. Smith wanted his Disney trip (me, too!), so we worked together and got us student group rates with the Y.E.S. program. I picked out the physics tour because it took us on the most attractions, and we would get to ride the monorail, which we’ve never done on a Disney trip with the band before. I actually assisted alot with the planning of this trip. Mr. Smith knows that I’m a Disney freak and that I go multiple times a year, so he wanted my help in scheduling. I created the itenerary (meeting his wants and needs, of course) and helped him create his chaperone packets… I actually got volunteer hours for assisting him! :laugh: So, I was very excited for this trip and hoped that Mr. Smith would be pleased.
Now, the entire band went, but the cast for my TR includes:
Dad (didn’t like the value resort or being restricted by the group, :laugh: but he had a good time) and his boys…
Joel (Mr. Smith’s son), 14 yrs
Jacob (Joel’s twin), 14 yrs
David, 15 yrs
Baby Jacob, 12 yrs
Mom (an experienced band chaperone) and her girls
Me, 18 yrs
Helen (my bff), 17 yrs
Merrill (Mr. Smith’s daughter, Rachel’s bff), 17 yrs
Rachel (sister!), 16 yrs
And then not in our room, Blair, 16 yrs
We were a pretty fun group! :laugh:[/QUOTE]
