thought i'd share a taste of how we spend a lot of our friday night's, this time of the year. on the high school football field.
the band getting ready to take the field for the national anthem, to start the game. see that little building, right behind the "manteca football" sign? that's the band's snack bar, where i do my share to help out, every now and then.
last week just happened to be homecoming. and the first time i have taken my camera to a game.
the manteca buffaloes, taking the field.
because it was homecoming, and they were announcing the queen's and princess's during half time, the band didn't do their usual half time performance. but it was cool to see everyone out on the field, during the announcments.
that's alyssa in the back. they were all really excited to wear the hats last week. NOT. they don't like the hats. or the uniforms, for that matter. they're really hot, and it was really hot last week.
of course there are cheerleaders. lots of them in fact.
and there was football.
i think my favorite part from the band, is at the end of the games, when they play. they do the school song, and then they play "R-E-S-P-E-C-T". and then they go into a bunch of other songs, and just have lots of fun with it.
sarah and a few of her BFF's, tawny and natalia. they spend more time running to the snack bar and the bathroom, than they spent actually watching the game.
and it's always a good night, when we have a scoreboard like this. with a buffalo win!
