Looks like I skipped homecoming parade when I was talking about all the homecoming stuff the other week. For some reason our parade is always on Thursday afternoon, I’m not sure why but I guess they do this to coincide with the carnival that comes to town that weekend. Emerson ended up going on the float with the boys, so I found myself with an unexpected hour of alone time. For the first time in a long time I was by myself and I really enjoyed it. I took a leisurely walk in the 100 degree weather and enjoyed it because there was nothing there but ambient noise.
It’s homecoming parade day and we were ready to go. That is until the balloons started exploding. We blew them up at our house yesterday so when they got in the heat today (and it’s a really hot day today in Texas) the air inside started expanding and it was like we were in a gun fight.
