I am supposed to be doing something probably very important for my class… But I’m talking first.
I got to have lunch with my mom today! I’m probably not any different from anyone else when I say I really love my mom… but, I really love my mom. We hung out for a while before I needed to head to the school.
Started putting together bits of the show tonight! The rifle work is probably going to be the hardest part of the show, but one of my kids has got it already! A couple more aren’t far behind.
We had the guy who’s been a part of the clinics from the beginning bring another guy… who ended up being a natural. I was kind of blown away by how well he caught on.
One of my girls was a rookie in the fall. She’s caught on pretty well, and she works really hard… But I thought she’d be away from the activity once we started the winter season. She races BMX bikes, hates wearing makeup, and doesn’t wear anything remotely form-fitting outside of guard. Anyway, she has a really tough AP schedule this semester, so she’s unsure if she’ll be able to do winter guard… What’s funny is, my schedule was almost exactly hers when I was a junior in high school. Do you guys have any advice for balancing an intensive schedule along with a sport… or theatre or something?
I forgot that the new recruits hadn’t heard the show music yet… I played it to put the new rifle work to it and they got all happy! YAY.
Anyway, that was my day.
I’m sore and rather exhausted but also super exhilarated… so glad to finally be working on the substance of the show. :D
