Rachel Goes to St. Louis

I was up at 4:00 this morning to get Rachel up at 4:30. She has a Color Guard competition in St. Louis tomorrow - the culmination of all these long weeks of practice - and the busses are scheduled to roll at 6:00. Which means she has to be there at 5:30 ready to load.

She got it done. Asked to sleep only another fifteen minutes and, because she'd packed the night before, we were out in plenty of time. I had to go back only twice - she'd forgotten her rifle and then her gloves - and that wouldn't have happened if we had let her drive herself to school instead of me taking her.

So she's off. We'll see her again on Sunday. Hopefully, some parent or student will take some video and post it somewhere that I can either link to or embed in a blog post later.
