Thought du Jour: Homecoming Week vol. 1

I love this time of year! For one glorious week we get to dress down every day in various themes, listen to music over the P.A. between classes, attend pep rallies, bonfires, home soccer & volleyball games, and a dance, and just generally kick back and relax!
Here's a play-by-play on the week so far:

MONDAY: Pajama Day! I love how they put it on a Monday morning, since they know everyone is totally exhausted then anyway. We wandered around school all day in our pajamas. My friend Shannon even fell asleep in Spanish class!
TUESDAY: School Colors Day! Today we donned our maroon and gray gear- all the stuff we could find- and showed our school pride! We had a pep rally too, and played some games and saw all the sports teams, and listened to some great music from the jazz band. That afternoon, I went to watch the boy's soccer game. We won, 4-0! It was a fantastic game! Then I went to Burger King with my friends to hang out and warm up until the bonfire started. The flames went about 50 feet up in the air for about 20 minutes, before the fire collapsed on itself and some grassfires started. Thankfully, they went out before we had to call the fire department back. Then we just hung out for two hours until it went out. There were a few games organized, like Red Rover, but mostly it was just socializing.

I'll post more in a couple of days!
