Go Illini! Bento

Tomorrow is a HUGE Big Ten match up with Ohio State coming in to play Illinois. That inspired today's bento (snack) which has a block I (of cheese), football picks (3 as she's shared with 2 friends), and a musical note to represent her brother in the Marching Illini.
As I have mentioned before we are SUPER PROUD of our son being in Marching Illini. The Marching Illini is the nation's premiere marching band as they are credited with many firsts in Marching band history. In fact, John Phillip Sousa referred to the Marching Illini as the "World's Greatest College Band" in the 1920s. The school houses the largest collection of original works and papers by John Philip Sousa. Zencollegelife.com recently published an articled called The 10 Best College Marching Bands of All Time and University of Illinois is on the list.

This weekend's performances include tomorrow's game (includes parade to & from the game, pregame show, halftime show, and post game performance) and Sunday is the Marching Illini in Concert at the Assembly Hall. My son is also playing in the pep band for the women's volleyball game on Saturday night. The team is undefeated and ranked #1. FUN WEEKEND!!!!

GO ILLINI!!! (football team is also undefeated!)
