Tonight we went to our High School musical and it brought back so many memories. For some reason we’ve been to the musicals and plays since the kids have been out of school – but tonight, well tonight I felt just a little nostalgic and honestly just a little sad.
To start with, Daryl and I came in about 25 minutes before it started. Yea, only 25 minutes. See when you are the parents of someone in the performance, you practically live there for a month and are always bringing food and drinks for the kids because they have very long hours during practice. And you would FOR SURE be there at least an hour or an hour and a half before the performance. So this was the first thing that was kinda weird tonight for me.
Then we sat in the back corner of the auditorium. AND I didn’t have a camera. In the past we’d strategically position ourselves in the middle aisle area and I’d have my Nikon camera with the large extended lens just waiting anxiously for the performance to start.
And we didn’t have any flowers to give anyone. See where I’m going with this?
I was feeling just a little sad that we didn’t have any involvement in the performance and we were just the ‘old’ people in the back of the room.
So I decided to check out some of the pictures later tonight that make me smile. And even though I didn’t have to bring any bars for the intermission, I still remember the 12 years in a row that we were the parents with the kids in the play and what a great memory and fun time that was! So below are a quick couple of pictures of our family during only a few of the performances.
