For this post (and perhaps the next): a little slice of home town life. As Summer makes preparations for Fall to arrive, and school hallways are filled with students, the fields come alive with football teams and, our favorite, marching band! This was taken at tonight’s home opener. It is senior year for our youngest son and we are looking forward to a great year of Friday night games and competitions.

Thought I would share a little home town news for this post. You know that summer has officially come to an end when the Grundy County Cornfest comes to town. This was the 67th year of this celebration that features a rather lengthy parade with politicians, local businesses, and my favorite, marching bands. This is the Minooka Community High School Marching Band. My youngest son plays in the pit (the marimba) and the band is having a great year in competition.
