Homecoming 2012

Mr. President had himself a week last week.  You see, it was HOMECOMING and he and the other SBO's were in charge of all the activities and assemblies for the entire week.  And, Mr. President also had to play in the big rivalry game on Friday night and get ready for his hot date on Saturday - day and night.

Boys #1 and #2 attended the homecoming football game with me on Friday night.  It was so crowded we actually had to sit right next to people instead of having our usual section of bleachers all to ourselves.  It was great fun to see so many folks come out to the game and for so many of my family members to be there to cheer on Mr. President, #74.  The first have of the game was pretty lame with neither team scoring, both seeming super nervous.  But, the second half the Wolverines were on fire and blew out the Lancers.  Mr. President was even quoted in the paper.

Senior offensive lineman Willie Petersen said the start was a little frustrating, but the team was determined to change the energy of the game.
"We came out with a whole new fire in us in that second half," he said. "We were a different team out there; we felt it."

On Saturday, it was the day of the big dance.  Mr. President has spent most of Friday decorating the commons area at school and on Saturday, his group of 16 had a day full of activities.  While Mr. President was cavorting with his friends and their females his mother, sister, aunt and cousin spent the early evening slaving away turning my mom's backyard into the patio of an Italian fine dining restaurant.

I think that we did a pretty good job and had a lot of fun setting up, embarrassing the President (I wore pink and matched his date.  Momacita tripped and fell down while carrying dishes.  Parkie was very sweaty and has a crush on the President's date), and spying through the windows.

@willie_petersen and his date.
Mr. President and his date. She was the cutest girl in the group. She was the best dressed of the group. She works at Chick-fil-a. It could be a match made in heaven.

My mom, aunt, @1996psw and I did a good job.
The picture doesn't do our cute patio justice. Once the kids all left, we hung out, listened to our special homecoming play list and had a great time, making fun of me, of course.

@1996psw has sweaty pits.
The super sweaty wait staff. He was however, an excellent bus-boy.

Mr. President is lucky that he has three mothers who take good care of him.  And a nice auntie and cousin who are his surrogate mom and little brother.  It was a great evening and I was excited to help out.
