We had a good time at the homecoming parade. Of course it was a "first" for the Mari, Zyia and Kylen. However the second we arrived, even in our small town there were cars everywhere. The kids in the parade throw candy...which ends up in the road, followed by other moving vehicles. Instant note to self: Do not come alone to the parade (alone..thats funny as I'm hardly ever alone), alone meaning the only adult. Lately Chris has been very busy at work. So I have taken the children several places "alone". Thank goodness the village stepped up today. From the time I got out of the car friends were everywhere to help. Which I felt so blessed and thankful.
