Sentimental mom here.

So we took pictures of MK for her last homecoming tonight. I went back and found pictures of her homecomings throughout high school, so here they are.

Homecoming 2012

We moved here in 1997. New to town, we heard about a homecoming parade. The Big Man was working, so I decided to take MK. We stood by ourselves and watched this small town parade that brought out the entire town. I was so impressed with the community spirit shown in that parade.

Since we had moved around a lot, I could not have envisioned that 15 years later, MK would be graduating from the school and participating in her 4th and final parade.

It was another great parade and a fun night at the football stadium (although we got creamed!) The dance is tonight, and the only word I can use is bittersweet.

Of course I want her to finish school and do well and go on to the next phase other life. It's just these landmark moments that make me wish I could turn back time for a little while and hold that 2 year old with the curls for just a few more minutes.

Another fun part of yesterday happened at school. We had a pep rally at school. The cheerleaders started something new this year: a faculty/staff homecoming court, and they selected me for it. I didn't win queen, but it was a lot of fun and really nice to be recognized.

Spirit week also included dressing up all week. MK showed school spirit all week, and I got into it a bit too.

So here are some pictures. I am the Junior class sponsor, so I've included some pictures of our float. We worked hours and hours on it

Weekend wrap up

The Big Man was off this weekend, so we watched A LOT of football together! Friday night was an away game for MK. T. Willy was sick on Friday, so the Big Man stayed with him during the day, and I stayed home with him Friday night while the Big Man went to the football game to support MK. It was hard to miss it, but T. Willy and I enjoyed ourselves, and he was pretty much all better by the evening. The Bulldogs enjoyed a convincing win, and that was great!

We watched college football all day Saturday. Since the Big Man works most Saturdays, we enjoyed a chance to watch the games live.

We were able to attend church as a family this morning. MK and I work in the "Creeper" room in the early service every week now, and then we met the Big Man and T. Willy for the second service. It was really a great day in the Lord's house.

After that, the NFL and homemade burgers and fries. We played some football outside with the kids - now we're watching the Steelers and getting ready for the week!

I don't have too many new pictures, so I'll just post some random things.

Happy birthday, Big Man!!!

The Big Man turned 44 today. We met right before he turned 19. Wow!!! So here is a picture of him opening a card with T. Willy watching.

Can you hear me now?

I've been trying for a week to post here, but it hasn't been working. I've been posting from my phone for years, so I don't know why, but I send posts, and they don't show up. So, this is just a test. If it works, I'll try to post what I tried before.
