2018 High School Homecoming – Junior Year
Fall is in the air, football season is in full swing and that means that high schools around the country are having homecoming celebrations. Our youngest grand daughter is a junior this year. Yes, I know, where does the time go? There is a local tradition for many of the kids to meet at a local park in the after noon for photos. The park is filled with parents, grandparents and hundreds of kids. It is a fun tradition and everyone seems to enjoy it. Now there are several locations that kids and their parents meet so the crowd is a little more spread out than in the past.
It seems that many high school students don’t date the way we did, back in the stone age. Many of them just meet a large group of friends and hang out at the dance that evening. I think they may actually have more fun than we did. Good for them.
The photo session starts with the grand daughter, then a friend is added, then a small group, and finally…
the whole crowd of friends get involved. Oh to have that much energy again.
Monday’s Music Moves Me.
The theme is music featuring unusual instruments. My choice isn’t based so much on the unusual instruments as it is their use. When was the last time you heard a bluegrass band play classical music?
This group performed at our church Friday night and the crowd loved them. Southern Raised is a family bluegrass band that specializes in gospel music. The three sisters and their little brother are all classically trained in piano and violin. However, their love of gospel music and the genre of bluegrass music led them into the southern gospel industry. Occasionally, they will give a classical number a new sound. If you hear of these young adults playing at a church near you, go give them a listen. You will not be disappointed.
Here is an example of what they do most. Enjoy. Have a blessed week.
