The Reese Homecoming Parade
We had the local parade tonight. Every year our school has a little float and I get to walk along and get some exercise. It's fun. Sunday is another parade, much longer long but we won't be able to make it. So I dodged that bullet. I was a little tired by the end and Austin had to pee about 1/2 way through it. Thankfully he made it and went behind the elementary school.
The boys had a great time waving their flags and throwing candy. Sometimes I think it's super dangerous for the crowds. Our kids throw some line drives at people. Someone is going to lose an eye from a sucker stick one day. ;)
Just another sign that fall is here. Another Homecoming come and gone. You know Joe and I kind of hit it off on Homecoming. At the dance after the football game I remember dancing with many guys during slow songs and finally after finishing a dance and the fast dances starting back up Joe approaches me and says something along the lines of, "you know you are the hardest person to get a dance with, next slow song will you dance with me?" And so I did and it was "November Rain" the longest song ever. I remember locking eyes with him. It was certainly magical. I know there had been a little flirting before that moment between us in the first month of school but that was when I really decided, I like Joe Papesh and I wanted him to be my boyfriend. And lucky for me he still is. 16 years together! Oy vey! Sorry if I already told you that story, I don't think I have though.
