After they finished playing, the 6th grade band members were told to stand. Jake and some of his friends saluted the band teacher like they did in the Hunger Games movie, and the whole crowd started laughing. (Even Scot and one of the other dads chimed in...the band teacher loved it.)
We're so proud of Jacob and the young man he's quickly becoming. All those hours practicing after school and at home (along with some nagging from mom) are definitely worth it!
