So very proud of my 14 year old who struggles with anxiety, and having no friends 😦 Driving an hour to see her do this, just makes my heart burst! Our high school is the number 1 football team in the state (Muskegon Big Reds), again, but lets give credit where credit is due.
Late night weekly practices way past my bedtime to pick her up, broken reeds and where are my gloves….
Grateful she is having this experience. Marching band was the best thing in my four years of high school, and 3 out of my four daughters have enjoyed it; one being the Drum Major for 2 years.
Had a fantastic night at our last home football game. Which means Senior Recognition Night, and I was able to hang out on the football field with my oldest daughter and my Senior as she was recognized for being the Drum Major in the marching band.
Yes; me. Bittersweet. Me, that complains about my girls, and how they drive me crazy and need to grow up and move out.
But I could not ever be more proud of this girl. She has went through, and put up with, so much BS, and she is absolutely beautiful, inside and out.
Oh, and yeah, Muskegon Big Reds did it again…pulled out a win even though the refs were being completely ridiculous. Even the opposing team said the refs were out of line!!!
So beyond proud of my 2nd daughter…High School Senior, 4.0+ student, Varsity Volleyball, Drum Major of the Marching Band, and has a job.
And, yes; this still happens…
