Parade Day

It has been a long time since we have enjoyed a parade! Luckily, the biggest parade in town was yesterday. Sora was excited about the candy and I was excited about a "real" parade after 4 years of dinky midwestern small town parades.

We arrived a few minutes early so we had time to draw before the parade. We joined a work friend and her daughter so we could share the parade fun (and candy).


On a side note, we went to a local football game on Friday night where we saw one of Kyle's camp staff play and also be crowned homecoming king. He also plays in the marching band, so we saw him in the parade too!
 In addition to a ton of candy, there were apples. One of the benefits of living in apple country I guess!

 And of course, my favorite was the band of Delorians. Most of them were holding "Back to the Future" signs. Sweet.
In other news, Sora is slowly growing up. She loves school and since she's forced to write in lower case, her penmanship is slowly improving. Each day she comes home with a new story. She is slowly learning to tie her shoes, although it's a long, slow process. She went to her first birthday party since we've moved to town. One of her classmates turned 6 and Sora had a blast at the party (after the parade - a lot of fun for just one day). She loves playing with the neighbors, so the new no-screen-time-on-school-days rule isn't that upsetting since she's busy playing with the neighbor girls anyway. Oh, and she can finally shampoo her own hair. It's the little things that make me happy!
