Every year this small town in which I live has a sort of Founders’ Day parade and festival. The parade goes right past my house, so I can watch from my front porch with coffee cup in hand. This morning was no exception.
There were all the elements of a small town parade.
Old cars and trucks.
Corporate sponsorship. (Moo.)
And most importantly, kids by the dozens. Boy scouts, girl scouts, gymnastics, cheerleaders, soccer. It’s always fun to see and hear the exact moment when my students spot me watching them.
And today there was perfect weather to top it all off.
