Homecoming Parade

Homecoming morning began very early for Stella and me...as in 6:00 AM pep rally early.  In my opinion, 6 in the morning is not a very peppy time of day, or at least it shouldn't be, but since one of the local television stations was broadcasting from Stella's school for game day, we dragged ourselves out of bed, grabbed a box of donut holes to share with the rest of the PBS families, and made our way to the gym.  Turned out to be quite a spectacle.  When the pep rally was mostly over, we went back home to pick up Cille and Watts and made it back to school in time for class.  It was a pretty short day, since I had to be back at 10:30 for the homecoming parade.  Stella and her classmates were so excited, and Cille was happy to be picked up early and to be an honorary kindergartner for a little while...    
 The girls and the class waiting for the parade to roll...
 Did I mention that it is Stella's weekend to have Peanut?  No, not the scary legume that sometimes makes our lives miserable! This Peanut is the class stuffed elephant that spends a weekend with all the kids in Stella's class.  Peanut was excited about the parade, too...
 Cille was anticipating things so much she could not pull her eyes away from the road...

 Stella's teacher demonstrated proper bead-catching technique...
 High-five from the motorcycle cops...


 Love the shadows in this one...



 The next two are Stella's teacher catching a shirt...
 Smart AND athletic! She's the total package!
 The senior moms even had a float...

 Funny story...the kid in the bottom right of this picture is the child of someone Damon and I went to LC with...sing it with me: "It's a small world after all..."
 Beads in the air shot!
 This float cracked me up...that guy looks shady!
 There are 121 second generation students at PBS.  What a testimony!


 I love the colors in this shot.  I don't know who the kid throwing the beads is, but I bet his mom would love this picture...

 We'll end with Peanut and a couple of members of the PBS class of 2026 post-parade...
