Homecoming Excitement

This last week in our small town was homecoming week. For those not familiar with homecoming, here in the US, is a celebration correlating to a milestone for the school. In our town it is tied to the first home games for the football, girls volleyball and girls swim meet. The school has a dance, pep rally, student competitions, a community parade, and more. With our two newly minted freshmen, you would have thought the world revolved around their activities. It made them feel grown-up, with so much to do. The best thing was I've never seen them so anxious to get their homework done.
