Tonight, UHS had their Homecoming Dance - a Sadie Hawkins adventure. Please notice the t-shirt Wade is wearing. He came home last night at 8 and asked how to make it. After a quick run to Hobby Lobby, he returned with marker and t-shirt. "Mom can you do this?"
One popcorn bowl and soup bowl later, we have a t-shirt commemorating that he was proudly and overtly the 'third wheel' with any and every couple that would have him tonight. I am looking forward to creeping on the social media sites to see how well he succeeded.
Thankful for a great high school, fabulous high school activities for our youth, and adults who will give up an evening; thankful for the hugs I received for simply tracing the popcorn bowl and drawing in a 3; thankful for his joy, his faith, his persistence to serve - thankful and very jealous.
His sister would have had something witty to say about his shirt - but she would have loved the way he committed to it 100%. She would have thought that was cool as heck. Thinking about that makes me smile.
