Flag Spinning Skills Take Practice

Here we are in Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s front yard.  Murphy resting in the grass.

Abigail was a flower girl in Mark and Erika’s wedding almost exactly ten years ago and now she is going into high school.  Here she is demonstrating how to spin a flag- there are butterflies and figure eights and she has to do it left handed and right handed and toss it in the air and catch it. Anna and Maura were watching and I know I couldn’t do it.  Even with practice.  Her silk flag flowing in synchronized motion will add a lot to the half time show come fall.

    Anna looks like she is ready to step right in and give it a try.

    I am sure it brought back memories for Erika. She should of shown Abby of few tricks.

  3. I wonder how many times she’ll have performed that routine before the first half-time show? I hope you’ll share pics of that performance, Ruth.

  4. I was in marching band in high school, and watched the flag twirlers with awe. It is certainly a skill!
