One & Two & Ready... Go
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Preparations for the show began many hours before the actual show. It's a huge undertaking. Practice run through the show, eating, dressing, hair/make up, and motivational speaking. I was awed.
About 15 minutes after they were done, amid chaos of packing equipment, gathering kids, changing from uniforms to regular clothes... the bottom dropped out of it. We nearly died because my husband is an asshat who kept refusing to pull over even though I knew (and he knew too!) damn good and well, he couldn't see a thing in front of him. He finally relented and pulled over at a little gas station in the middle of nowhere. We got snacks and let the heavier rain pass by.
It was chaotic. It was a mess. It was their first performance of the year. It can only get better from here.
