marching weekend

It’s the end of the marching season and Poppy’s Maitahi Guards team has had a fantastic time with their amazing coach, Lisa.  If you have a daughter, consider marching as a team sport – it’s been a very worthy activity for Poppy’s social, musical, physical & collaboration skills development.

This weekend we went to the Blenheim Marching Closing Fun Day where the girls did their technical and display routines as well as a march past, maze march and some games with costumes.

Taking the opportunity to see Ma & Pa while we were over that way, we stayed with them in Picton and also spent time with Poppy’s cousin, Jack.  We also had fun play times with Poppy’s friends and a trip to the Chocolate Factory!
