Homecoming is nothing but a memory now.
It is a full year until next Spirit Week, and Homecoming Week.
The kids had fun, as always.
And, I think Homecoming is such a great way to "honor" your school.
I get happy when I see the parade.
I get happy when I see how happy all the kids are.
SO good for morale!
South Lakes had their Homecoming parade on Friday afternoon around 17:30.
At 19:30 it was time for the Homecoming football game against Madison High School.
The kids were psyched and ready!!
Peter and I actually left after the half time show (Karolina stayed, of course. AND, it was NOT like she was hanging with US). The weather was so cold.
We went on to a sports bar to see the Washington Nationals (baseball team) play a game that they lost in the very sad way at the very end.
And, that folks, was our Friday night.
A little piece of Americana.
