Emily wins 11th grade homecoming representative ...
Homecoming was just perfect. Taylor came before the game and we took some photos. Taylor is not the same as Tyler, who was her ex-boyfriend who she is NOT dating at the moment (she isn't dating anyone at the moment). Taylor has been a good friend since 8th grade and he has a girlfriend who "let" him escort her to the game. LOL
Taylor came all dressed up and I had gotten him a matching red tie. When I first met Taylor (Em was in 7th grade), he asked Emily if "I" was his "sister". Well, now ... that is the best compliment anyone has paid me in a LONG time!! So of course, I think the world of him. Since that day, he calls me sis and I call him bro. HA HA HA
The game was pretty chilly, a whopping 45 degrees. I was still feeling pretty rotten from whatever stomach thing I was fighting (I feel much better now) and I wasn't able to eat most of the day. We were all bundled up under blankets, coats, etc. and I honestly was surprised when they announced "Emily Thacker" as the 11th grade representative winner. Here, each grade votes for their own grade then everyone votes for the homecoming senior.
Now she will get to ride in the Concord Christmas Parade which is Nov. 22nd. Its a very L-O-N-G parade and lasts a few hours. So .. I will be working on that.
