Sunny but cool saturday!

Yes its saturday and its going to be a nice Fallish saturday! This has been a busy week at work for me. Yesterday was a fun day though. We had Homecoming at the Burrodome yesterday. We call it Burrodome because we are the Hillsborro Burros.
We have a alot of school spirit at our school, the students and the faculty. We all wear our Burro shirts and beads on every game day.


This is me yesterday morning before work. With my beads and my shirt. It was a very frosty morning yesterday it was only 32 when I walked out the door at 6:00 a.m. Brrrrrrr.
We had our Homecoming parade at school yesterday afternoon. I took my camera to take pictures of all the festivites. Below is a picture of our crazy, fun loving Principal and 2 of our student office workers. He is a really great Principal!

He really gets into the school spirit with his green wig! Below are pictures of the floats that the kids made. We played a High School whose teams name is the Panthers. We were undefeated this year and so were the Panthers, so we knew it was going to be a great game. It was just a beautiful day for the parade in front of the school.
After the parade we proceeded into the gym for the Pep Rally. Its really loud and the kids get fired up!
Four boys were nominated to see who could sit on blocks of ice to see which one was the "Coolest Dude".


And then we had a Crystal hamburger eating contest to see who could eat the most crystals in a certain amount of time.
So it was really just a fun time yesterday. After pep rally the students were dismissed for the day. I stayed at work until game time as I had volunteered to sell tickets in the booth at the field last night. I worked for almost 3 hours, myself and another lady in one booth and 2 other people in another booth. I could not believe how many people showed up for that game. I didn't even get to see the game. I was wore out after my shift and really, really cold. The game was in the 3rd quarter we were tied 6 to 6. I went home and turned on my T.V. to watch the rest of the game. When I got home we were ahead 12 to 6 and thats how it ended. We won!! We have one more game next week and then we will be in the play-offs.
Hillboro has always had a great football team.
Today I am going to go up to Moms and helped her put together our shipping tag books. I also store my winter clothes at her house as I have very little storage space at my house. I will be bringing them home as the weather is so cool now and I have very few warm clothes here,lol.
I hope every one has a wonderful week-end and I hope you enjoyed a little school spirit from the Burrodome.

Yea! Your team won!! Looks like a fun day.

It is chilly and rainy here this morning. It actually feels like fall. I think we'll have a fire in the fireplace tonight. First one of the season.

Wow that was really interesting we don't have anything like homecoming days over here, so it was really interesting to read all about it. Hope you have a great weekend.
