Well not really die, but more or less, what do we do when our band kid graduates and we have all of this stored up band parent energy and enthusiasm with nowhere to express it??!! Obviously I can still go to games and competitions, and I WILL, but it's never going to be the same. We'll just be those weird former band parents that never move on. But I'm ok with that, I reckon. Because band. And because Texas. ;-) Who's with me??!!

I'm right there with you!!!

 

I have a few years left but when my kids are done, I'll continue to volunteer for the band...our school always needs parents.  We have volunteers who haven't had kids in school for 5, 10, 15 years!  They just love to volunteer and help the band.

 

I love music and I love watching our kids excel.  Why wouldn't someone want to be around these kids?

I hear ya! Some former parents still volunteer at Leander as well, I know. I just wonder if the competitions will "feel" the same now. Guess I'll find out this fall! :)
