Kellie and Winter Guard...

Tonight Ron and I were able to go to an exhibition of the Memorial High School Winter Guard, Drum Line, and Cadet Guard. Kellie was part of the Guard during Marching Band season. When one of the girls broke her foot early in Winter Guard, Kellie was asked to perform with them. Quite an honor for an 8th grader.

I tried to video with the digital camera but apparently I was not able to tape the entire performance of either the Cadet or High School Winter Guard. They both end abruptly, but you can see most of the Winter Guard's performance. I was trying, like any good grandmother, to keep Kellie in the frame. I was pretty successful I think, but all the girls are very talented. They have been competing weekly now for the last 5 weeks with their final performance to be this weekend, barring any bad weather.

The music is Phantasmagoria.


We were grateful for the chance to see them perform. And we wish them success this weekend!

For being a grandma I say,
Thanks be to God!


  1. Cathy, I have a little something for you on my blog.

  2. A proud grandmother you should be too :) She is a graceful, talented young woman. Dance makes for a soaring soul - she must be a very happy young woman. I wish I could still dance - there is nothing else that can give your heart the same feeling.

  3. Oh, wow, Cathy! Beautiful! What a proud Grandma you should be!

  4. Thanks for sharing this! School performances are so genuine, so innocent and with so much heart. Lovely video.

  5. Er Cathy I also have a special surprise for you at View from the Pews ( lol Esther-you great lady!)

    Peace to you always:)

    Bless you for your kind and wise words on my blog.
    I will add you to my blogroll :)
