There is a tradition in our town that both high schools get together for a football game. Apparently this tradition is 46 years old and no one was going to let some frigid temperatures stand in the way of tradition. Thankfully the town supplied warming busses for spectators, although the temperatures didn’t plunge too much until the wind began towards the end of the game.
Every year we have discussed going to the game, but it wasn’t until our daughter started at the school and joined marching band that we actually made it. I have to say that it is a great way to spend Thanksgiving morning (provided you are layered in handkints).
Greyson and I were the only ones who braved the cold to sit in the stands. My mother and son stayed home to start the turkey. As our daughter says, we need to improve our selfie skills. Oh well.
The best part is that our school won! We ended the regular season 7-3 and apparently made it into the playoffs. #lawmazing
It was wonderful to have our son back from Germany for Thanksgiving. We kept to the traditional dishes this year and had an all around quiet, small meal but that’s how I like it. With one week to go until Advent begins, our calendar is already chock full and I’m exhausted just thinking about it.
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. I know my fellow teachers and myself are trying to preload rest for the insanity that is the month of December.
