Our town knows how to do it right when it comes to celebrating important holidays and milestones. Last week was Prescott High School's spirit week, Homecoming Parade, football game and dance. It was quite a busy week for the kids and teachers as well as all of the volunteers who made so many things possible to celebrate our kids.
This is how it went....
In honor of spirit week and homecoming the high school puts together a homecoming parade with floats for each class and all of the nominees and attendants ride along in the parade waving and throwing candy to the little kids watching.
The varsity football team looked really cool sitting on the firetruck - they got off easy not having to build a float!
The cheerleaders walked, jumped and cheered around the town square showing off their spirit and great moves!
Our daughter, Megan, was voted Homecoming Attendant for her class of 2015.
We were so proud and happy for her to have been nominated.
Her sophomore class decorated their float with an alien day theme from spirit week. I never figured out the alien part but it was fun anyway. Megan was also happy to have her best friend, Selena, on the float too.
The kids did really well when it came to thinking up ideas for their class floats. The wild animal float was pretty fun to see.
Dodging the flying Tootsie Rolls, I was able to get a few shots without falling over little kids diving for the loot!
PHS has a lot of clubs and the kids did a lot of walking to show them off.

The awesome police department kept everything safe and under control, a big thanks to them and the town for supporting the kids.
After the parade the kids all went to the original home of PHS, now known as Mile High Middle School, and had a pep-rally-bon-fire celebration to kick off the football game the following night.
Our daughter's friends ~ Nick and Riley who were nominated for King and Queen.
The fire was awesome, it was the center of the rally and gave us the only light to see with which was good for the parents.
That awesome fire would not have been possible without the team of firefighters who maintained and watched the kids to ensure all went off without a hitch. We were so grateful for their support.
This cutie-patootie cheerleader is special to me as I have watched her grow-up with my girls.
Here's two of the most important people in my life, my beautiful daughters, who make me cry nearly everyday with frustration of raising teenagers, but who also bring me more joy than can be explained. We are so proud of both of you!
