Her First Parade...

Good afternoon friends.  Does it feel like fall where you are?  Today definitely does not feel like fall that much in GA.  It is very humid and in the mid 80's.  Supposed to be a little cool down tonight and tomorrow.  Crossing my fingers!

This past summer, Darbee Rae attended a fun cheerleading camp held at a high school here in town.  The "big girls" teach the small ones simple moves and cheers.  She LOVED it.  One of the perks of attending camp is the camp participants get a shirt and cute hair bow and they also get to ride on the float with the "big girls" in the homecoming parade.  Homecoming at the high school is always a big deal.  It was a big deal when I went there too.  We had spirit week all week with a dress up theme for each day.  It was so fun.

This was homecoming week.  Darbee Rae has looked forward to the parade since June.  She was so excited to be able to ride in the parade-a first for her.
We met up with her friend Katie (sitting beside her) and they were able to ride together.
They were so cute and so very excited.

The "big girls" had made all of the little ones shakers to shake during the parade.
Once she was on the float and ready to go, I headed up town to sit and wait for the parade to start. The route is pretty long.  She was a little worried she wouldn't see me, but she did!
There they are!
She was waving and smiling and cheering!

She had such a good time.

The next day at school was College Day for the letter "C."
Darbee was so excited to wear her Georgia Bulldogs outfit.

We completed her look with matching toes and nails.

Love it.

We have had a busy weekend already.
We went to the homecoming football game last night, met Katie for a fun play date this morning and are going to the rodeo tonight.  Whew!  
What fun.

I hope all of you are having a great weekend!

Until next time....
