Then on Sunday I have a baby shower to go to. One of the girls that went to high school with my daughter. I try not to intrude with her and her friends but when they request that I come I just love it!! It really is weird at times. I spent forever running my daughter around with some of her friends or chaperoning at events, spending time with them at competitions out of state and really becoming close to a lot of them. Then they graduate and move on with their lives. I hear my daughter talking about seeing them or talking to them and I find myself asking her all kinds of questions because I realize I miss seeing and being around her and her friends. I see a lot of them on her Facebook page but I never friend them. I just feel like it's not my place to. But when they friend me of course I accept and I am so excited that I have to chat them up a bit. lol
I also miss their parents. I have become really good friends and close to a lot of them. Some have moved away, some I see around town. But it's just not the same as seeing them every practice or game or event. You really do miss that when they have grown. Of course I keep in touch with them on Facebook, Myspace and email but it's not the same. I ran into a good friend just the other night at our local gas station and we talked for a good 45 minutes. lol Fun seeing her and enjoyed catching up.
So I brought all of that up because my friend that I went to high school with invited us to see her daughter perform Monday night out our high school. Her daughter is doing Winterguard this year. Now my daughter was big into Winterguard it was with this team (& Colorguard) where I became close with a lot of the families. They are called Estetica and when my daughter did it they won 3 SCGC Championships in their division. A real big deal! I am not sure what they have done since my daughter graduated (2003) but I was excited to learn that they have so many girls now that they have both a Senior Winterguard and a Junior Winterguard - that is amazing! Here is a performance from last year, it is a competition performance. (not the one we seen Monday night.)
It is really awesome to see it in person. If you ever get the chance you need to! I forgot to mention that our city was so proud of our Winterguard that they designated May 23rd as Estetitica Winterguard day!! Now that is quite the honor!!
