Oh my goodness! What a FUN morning I had! I went to watch my daughter's high school's Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally. Allie's band marched in the parade and performed a portion of their show at the Pep Rally (they were AWESOME, as always!) The bleachers at the Pep Rally were filled with students, and many other school groups performed and made announcements. All of a sudden, they announced a SURPRISE VISITOR ..................... JORDIN SPARKS !!!!! Jordin attended our high school before pursuing her music career. Jordin even said her visit was last minute, and wasn't sure whether she was going to be able to attend or not. In true school spirit, Jordin wore her school jersey! She said she wasn't sure what to do, and the kids all chanted "SING SING SING!!!!". So, she did! I was so wrapped up in the moment and taking pictures that I couldn't even tell you WHAT she sang! The kids said it was one of her new releases. I tell ya', Miss Jordin Sparks is one class act! She is so sweet and down-to-earth ... the kids LOVE her!
If you're an American Idol fan like our family is, you may remember last Spring's episode with the hometown visits. That was Allie's school, and Allie's marching band in many of the shots! Now THAT was an exciting day!
Well, I'm off to the Homecoming Football game. My job tonight is selling 50/50 Raffle Tickets for the Marching Band, John's in charge of water for the band, and Drew will be covering the popcorn consessions during half-time so the parents can watch the kids' show.
