..... is going on right now. I decided I'm a warmer weather Homecoming game goer.
These girls, however, are up there right now having a great time.
Tangent: I got a call last week from one of the high school teachers, and she began the conversation by wondering if she pronounced our last name correctly. I used the opportunity to teach. I said, you have a lot of Finnish names up there at the high school, so here's a hint. The Finnish language is phonetic, and Finnish last names are always pronounced with the accent on the first syllable. If you hear it otherwise, it's because someone Englified it.
So here's your practice. From left to right: Bekkala, Pennala, Parks, Pietila, Kilpela, Johnson, Pietila, Lassila, Tormanen, Seiter, Laakso, Anderson and Niemi. Another Pietila and a Kantola joined them at the end of the parade.
From what I hear, eleven of them are spending the night.
Mark is pretty pumped.
