Good Evening friends!

Last night we had our music department banquet.Went really well! :DD
In the marching band this year we had 5 seniors that have been with us since they were in 7th grade.
All of them are like my babies especially my two color guard girls.
It's been such a joy to them grow up to be really nice young adults.
It's so bitter sweet to have them graduate. I almost started to color like 5 times last night!
I don't normally get that emotional but these kids really have a little piece of my heart.
One my guard girls gave me a card, I have not opened it yet. I'm just not emotionally ready for it. Does that make me weird?

Looking forward to next year our show is going to be a Pop show! Our songs are HandClap, Havana, Believer and Some Nights.
If you would like to hear the arrangements just let me know, :)
I'm really looking forward to next. I just hope and pray we have a good group signed up for next year!

Well I'll be heading to dance soon.
Everyone enjoy your night!

I know some of you are Merlin fans so I'm going to start pimping this out!

I'm hosting a Merlin Season 1 Icon Battle.

If you're interested, go H E R E to sign up!

Thank you, that is all from me today!
Sorry if my many posts have been a bother.

Hi friends!

I'm having a nice quiet relaxing Sunday. I have been making a icons for challenges and icontests.

Here are some:

The first three icons are actually of my little marching band. :D

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
Sometime later in the week my mom and I are going to go pick out some flowers to plant and probably get some hanging baskets too.

My week coming up is going to be a pretty busy one!
I have a meeting in the morning about the upcoming primary election for PA. Then I go to work for a few hours. Then it's off to Marching Band practice to prepare for our memorial day parade. Lastly I'll come home, help finish up with chores, eat a quick dinner and shower and then I'm going to bed.

I have to get up about 5:00am to work the election board for 14 hours. Sad I have to miss dance. :(

Just a regular wednesday. :)

I might try to mow the lawn and hope it dry enough to do that! Go to work and then I'm off to a Choir concert. I'm going to working a ice cream social. After that I'll be going to hip-hop and probably be home around 10:00pm.

Up super early again because my dad and I are going the elementary school for career on wheels for the kindergartners. We show them a baby calf, the tractor and take them on a little hay ride. Then I'm off to work again.

That's a run down of my week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, my friends!

*weaves* HI FRIENDS!!!!

So it's been so long since I logged onto LJ. Just too long. I have missed you all!
I hope everyone has been doing well.

Well I have thought I would just give a little update of what I have been up to and what has gone on in my life.

- My grandma passed away a few days before Christmas. I was pretty sad about that for awhile but I know she is in a much better place now though.
- Our Pastor of 7 years announced that he wanted to move away for schooling in June. That too made me kind of depressed. I'm really close with their kids and watched them grow up and I hate change. SO that hit me pretty hard! I'm think I'm slowly feeling better about the situation.

They were some of the low parts of the last few months.

High points were:
- Winter Guard season went very well. I had 5 girls. Two of them were in 6th grade but they did an awesome job keeping up with the older girls!
We got to perform two different times. I made routines from the songs Believer and Make it Look Easy.
- I'm in 3 dance classes this year! I'm doing Contemporary, Hawaiian and Hip-Hop. My song for Contemporary is Gonna Be(500 Miles). The song for Hawaiian is Logo Te Pate from Moana. The song for Hip-Hop is Khameskom Fella. I'm really liking my dancing this year. The recital is June 15th and 16th. So I'll probably be talking about more.
- I've also been trying really hard to watch what I eat and try to exercise a little bit each day. It's going well some far but so days I'm definaly less motivated.

I've been working with my dad more on the farm so that's one of the reasons why I haven't been here for awhile. I also just been really struggling with being worried and anxious. As I said before I hate change and there has been quite a few changes. I'm really trying not to feel that way but it's hard.

Well I think that's all the highlights. I really hope to be around a little more. I really have missed you all SOOOO much!
Please if I missed something in your life let me know. :)
Also if anyone reads this whole thing. You're the best!

Have a great night!
I'm off soon to feed some baby calves.

I hope you all had an awesome day as well and hope it has continued into the evening hours!!

Good afternoon friends!

It's so rainy here! Everywhere is mud and mud puddles. I would love to see the sun sometime again real soon!

I had a meeting this morning for getting the voting materials.
I'll be sitting at the voting polls tomorrow for the fall election. It's usually a long day but the ladies I work help make it go by quick.
We usually basically eat and snack all day long. :)

Later tonight, I have another meeting with my music department peeps. Then I have finish chores at the barn and head to bed.

That's basically my day. Pretty boring I know but I kind of like old and boring sometimes.

Have a marvelous Monday my friends!! :D

HEY GUYS!! I'm back from a LONG HIATUS from LJ.
I really didn't mean to just go MIA but RL got a little crazy.

I just want to say have missed LJ and you all SO MUCH!!

I'd like to share with you guys about this years marching band season.

Well are numbers were really low this year. We had 20 kids signed up. At the beginning of summer when we did the drill.
We were disapointed that some of the kids that we had last year didn't back. The only reason they really didn't come back was we weren't going a trip.
Anyways but we thought 20 was okay.

So the night we do uniforms came and dieaster hit. One of kid moved away, another literally quit twenty minutes before a uniform night stared, and one quit becasue of football.
Of course that didn't sit really good with us as directors and for the kids that were still doing band were not feeling good with our season but we still try to stay postitive and pump them up for band camp in the a couple of days.

Band camp came and the first day was so bad. Then dieaster hit again. Out of the blue a kid that really likes marching band just says he quits and won't talk to us about why is so upset. So at this point we don't what to do. Our two drum majors really took the news like champs. My fellow directors and I were going to do whatever it to save our season!

The next day our trumpet player returned! We were happy but angry that he let his other band members down. One of drum majors that also plays trumpet offered to help with his music so he felt more condfident about playing it. So after that the rest of band camp went really well. All the kids were working hard and really doing an awesome job for just band camp.

We had a great premiere for their parents and everyone was really impressed with our small but might band.

For the first couple football games we had some little struggles but we over came them but they really stressed me out!

Then it came time for our competition! What a day that was!

First we had to go to a football game in the 80 degree temps and then we had to travel an hour to go to our competition.

We finally made it to Bradford(where the competition was at)! We hurried and got the kids some dinner so they didn't passout during the performance.

They finished getting dressed and then it was time to warm up. The band and color guard never looked and sounded so good as they warmed up. I kept telling my girls if you performed like that on the field we could win this competition. The drum majors gave speeches and they did their good luck chants and it was time for us to perform.

Then we watched a couple other bands and waited for the award time.

Award time I was so nervious. The annocnced the first caption a award, Best Music....COUDERSPORT!! All of us were so happy!!
Next Caption Award. Best Visual....COUDERSPORT!! (we got this last year too)!! All of us were so happy again!!
Next Caption Award Best General Effect...COUDERSPORT!! We went crazy!!!

That being said we got 1st PLACE we beat two other bands by almost 2 points!!

Some of are kids were crying and I even cried a little bit. What really got me was to see the kids see the trophies for the first time. They were so HAPPY!! We has directors were SO PROUD!!

This was a news clipping from one of local newspapers.

The upper picture is all of our seniors. They have been with us for 6 years. They literally like my babies or first borns. All five of them are  SO awesome in their own little ways.
I'm going to miss them SOOO MUCH!!
The lower picture is my two senior guradies and myself.(I look like a hot mess, just ignore me) These two were my first ever rookies.
It's been so a joy watching them grow in color guard and into just two amazing young ladies. So proud to be their color guard instructor/guard mom!

So that's the about my last three months. It's been quite a season it's a had a lots downs but also some really good ups.

I hope to ease back into LJ and hopefully make some icons sometime.


Have a great night my friends!

Look how cool we look! Don't we kind of look like ninjas??

So I wanted to shared what I have been doing for the last month. Well here it goes....

Next up was my dance recital. I danced in my 21st dance recital on June 16th and 17th.
That week I practiced a lot and still went to work. So buy the end of week I was exhausted.
To top it off I was sick and missed dress rehearsal but I was glad that I felt better to do the actual show nights.
Both my dances were pretty intense this year. I was proud of myself for doing them especially my contempary one. (see the pictures)

That same weekend was our Relay for Life. So on the day of 16th I was up over 24 hours while doing a dance recital and helping with at the Relay.
Our team was in charge of games to keep everyone awake.
Then I went home slept for a few hours and then did the last show night for dance.
By the end of the night I was ready to sleep again!

It's was a honor to have danced with this talented young dancers. They are both awesome!
Finally it was Vacation Bible School week. I had that June 19th - 23rd from 6-8:30 and going to work. VBS went really well!
I got to work with 7 little preschoolers they were fun but tiring. :)

So by the time I was done doing all that. I just didn't want to do anything. I just relaxed an chilled.

And for a while know I have been having a lot of anxiety about many different things.
I'm really trying not too but it's hard not to.

I had a very busy month but it was a really good month too. I lot of fun things happened.

Thank you to whoever reads all this! :D
