They performed two shortened matinees on Thursday and evening shows Thursday - Saturday.
The Good: They always adapt their field show for the gym... unique... and always wonderful.
I just found out that no one is able to watch the little YouTube videos I post... I think this should work. You sure don't have to watch all of it... but it gives you an idea of what this Indoor thing is like...
The Bad: The Angsty Teen was exhausted beyond belief.
There was an After Party on both Friday and Saturday when they were done... the parties ended about 1:00 am. There was also a brassline sleepover on Friday... she said she fell asleep around 4:00 am, and a 1:00 am trip to Perkins in a neighboring town after the Saturday After Party. She got home at 3:00 am Sunday morning.
The Ugly: Had a meltdown on Saturday.... not me, the Angsty Teen.
She asked me if she had to go to Indoor. When I parent that child, I give her a lot of freedom to make decisions... mostly because she won't willingly listen to me anyway.
I said, "It's totally up to you if you go tonight."
What I didn't say was, "WHAT?!?!? You can't let 120 people down that are marching the show, you have to go, you don't have a choice." Wise choice on my part. Because, of course, she decided to go... and that was the last I heard of it... because it was her decision. Sometimes I am wise.
2. Saturday was the Angsty Teen's birthday!
|She loved this present... oh, and the sweatshirt she has on...|
which she didn't love when she opened it... but loves now... she exhausts me.
The Bad: The Angsty Teen will start driver's ed in school this winter. Enough said.
The Ugly: I made/brought 150 cupcakes to the Saturday night After Party... and she still wants a small party with friends this coming weekend... dang... thought maybe I could get out of that...
|So many cupcakes...|
|Red velvet w/cream cheese frosting|
Hope your weekend was good.
Next year you could come see me and check out the Indoor! (Hey, Danavee, you would love this!)
