Homecoming Parade

There was a buzz in the air on Friday as the kids were anticipating Homecoming and all the activities that go with it. One of the big events was the parade that the kids march in.

They talked all week about the theme their class was doing.   Each class represented a state.  Shane's class came through first.

There is my proud little kindergartner as Uncle Sam.  They were representing New York so the girls dressed up as the Statue Of Liberty and the boys were dressed as Uncle Sam. 

They all waved their American Flags proudly.

One last wave before he was out of sight!

Next came Emma's class who were ready to hit the beach.

The represented California so all wore beach attire and carried items they would take to the beach! Emma got to carry the music for her class.  

One last big grin from my beach beauty! 

Next the cowboys and cowgirls made their way through the parade. 

Alexa's class represented Texas had had quite the chant with their howdies and yee haws!

Round em up 3rd graders! 

Each of the classes came through and then there were various floats and businesses in town that made their way way through the parade route throwing candy.  Shane was a little sad to miss this part this year now that he was in the parade.  He always loved going to the parade and getting all the fun candy and treats that everyone threw out.  As the football players and cheerleaders rode through on floats I couldn't help think this just might be right around the corner as fast as I feel like these years are going.  Could they please slow down a little.  

After the parade we made our way into school for the Family Fun Festival.  The kids had fun playing all the different games.  It is getting a little easier to maneuver through the craziness now that we have done it a couple years. 

Shane thought it was so much fun to play the games but also to see his classmates all over.

Emma won the cake walk and look at these fun yummy brownie pops she picked out.  There were numerous parents and teachers that commented to her that they were so her.  I love that others see my Emma for who she is and her love and excitement for life! 

We finished the day with fun on the inflatables. 

The weather was a little chilly so we decided not to go the football game.  I am sure as the kids get older and they start asking the tail gate party and football game will be added to our Homecoming fun!
