This afternoon we met grandpa to watch the 2011 Red Oak Homecoming parade - Go Tigers! In order to get good seats we needed to be there early. To pass the time Clark and Grant enjoyed listening to grandpa read them the library books we had checked out earlier in the day!
Even Addie wore the school colors - yes, we are tigers (orange and black). Good thing I could find all of the kids' Halloween apparel!
The FFA kids still went through the parade. They carried their new Red Oak FFA banner, a bunch of them rode in the back of a truck with their FFA t-shirts followed by the John Deere tractor (without the attachment). We'll chalk this up as a learning experience and move on - although my suggestion for next year is "PLOW them Under" - imagine the possibilities!
Our preschool activity today (other than story time at the library) consisted of sorting parade candy. First sorted by general type, than color or more specific type. Finally, Clark worked on some division as he counted them out and figured out how to equally split the candy pieces between himself and Grant. We were in such a good spot on the parade that we won't need to go trick or treating :)
Wishing you all a happy last day of September and HELLO October!
