Kansas homecoming: yes there's more

My previous post was about the football game. But the afternoon of homecoming, there's the parade. What are the things you need in a parade? They're just about all here.

There's the football players on the truck...

There's the cheerleaders on the truck with the football players...

And then there's the chick on the front of the truck...

The school mascot, of course...

The homecoming nominees...
homecoming nominee (it should be noted that my aunt and I were quite relieved later that evening when our pick for queen won. She was the only one who did not list "getting married and raising a Christian family" on her self description of goals. Our pick said she'd go to college and decide then what to do with her life. phew.)

And yes, Rozanne, there was a band. Why is it the tuba player looks just what I imagine a tuba player to look like? Amazing.

I really, really, really love this series. Thank you, for brightening my day with them. ((big hugs))

So there's money in the budget for football uniforms and cheerleader outfits but not for band uniforms.

I have to say that I do not approve of those priorities, but at least they *have* a band in this day and age of slashing school funding for the arts.
