let the parades begin

yesterday was olivia's first marching parade of the season. she is in color guard and does flag routines. we love watching her do something that she really likes to do. it was fun sitting on the sidelines, watching her walk down the street in perfect synchronized fashion with the rest of her squad along with her junior high band. she did great! she has many more weeks's of parades ahead of her coming up. i hope she has a blast!

Oh I love parades. She did good. Her outfit is so sparkly. Love it! I would probably hit myself in the head with those big flags. Great job Olivia

Christy,

Oh how this brings back so many memories of my younger sister who was in Tall Flags and Drill Team. I loved watching all her competitions and the routines that they would come up with.

Olivia looks amazing and I bet you are one proud mom! Thanks for sharing this beautiful pictures with all of us.

Aren't parades great fun?! I haven't been to one for many long years, so this was a real treat for me.

What a precious, pretty young lady you've shared with us too.

Blessings,

How pretty she looks! Reminds me of my days as a twirler - about a million year ago!!! It was such fun.

We're not there but because of the vlog, it felt like we were with you. Thanks for sharing. That's great that she gets to do what she loves and we know that when you're passionate about something, you try to strive for the best. God bless you and your family. Have a great week sister!

Kristin said...

That is so neat! I was in flags when I was in Jr High too, before we moved to Baytown, TX. Then in High School, I was Commander of our all girls Drum and Bugle Corp and had to march backwards to lead the music. It was so much fun and I have such great memories from those days!! I bet she will too :)

I think it would be so much fun to march in a parade! She looks so cute in her outfit :) I love to see the kids having a grand time performing for the crowd.

Grammy and Olivia said...

Loved these pictures. Both my son and daughter marched in this very same band when they were in Jr. High (same director, he's a good guy). My son was a drummer and my daughter the drum major. Fun days!

Loved the apple picking pics too!

That is awesome! I imagine that takes a lot of practice and coordination! My daughter starts middle school next year and i didn't think about them having opportunities like this, how fun!

Oh how fun! I couldn't see the video but I could see the pictures and she looks so pretty. I'll bet she has a blast and you must have loved watching her!

Kee said...

Oh Christy she is beautiful and you can tell she loves doing that.

Thank you for all the encouragment you have given me especially in the last few days. I can't express how much it means to me. I love blog land. God is using it for HIS glory and to help HIS children come together. It's awesome.

How well I remember the days of parades, flying batons, and sequins; your daughter seems a better fit for these types of things than I ever did! I know you're proud. You should be.

Beth in NC said...

Good for her! Marching bands make me cry for some reason. I think it takes me back to my childhood. I was in the marching band too -- Clarinet (woo hoo).

I hope she had a great time!

Mocha Momma said...

That looks like fun! I think she'll have a great year. She looks great and those flags are cool. I like the uniform too. Blue is so pretty.

My kids finally started school on the 16th. So far all is going well. They haven't had any real homework yet though. i'll need patience for those days.

Have a nice weekend.
Thanks for being loyal.

Bridget said...
