I am a bit tired today. But a good tired. Yesterday was our University's Homecoming. Anyone out there live in a college town? Well, then you know what it is like. Our city goes all out and it seems like everything is be-decked in maroon and silver. Grizzly paws adorn faces, cars and store windows. And if you are a baby, you are of course dressed like a little cheerleader...LOL  

Both my girls graduated from the University of Montana so I am doubly proud. We met up with our youngest and attended the "Big" Parade. Bands from as far away as Japan and right down to our very own Alumni Band (consisting of past U of M band members), they are my favorite. The tootsie rolls filled the bags and pockets of everyone, we all got a new American Flag and lots of "Hello's" were shouted over the strands of many band selections. This town was having a good time!

Hubby and I have season tickets, so off to the game we went. Alas, we lost, but I still had fun and we were 25,000 strong, cheering on our team even as the ending looked glum. Whew, busy day. But one for the memory books. Always, Kit

I work in a Football college office, ever heard of Liberty? :) I heard nothing but nice things about the Montana Grizzlies. A friend of mine posted tons of pictures on facebook from the scenery to the stadium and of course the game. I would have loved to have gone just to enjoy the scenery, throw in a football game even better. Our homecoming is in two weeks and I can't wait!! Maybe we'll get to meet up someday :)
