Tomball High School Homecoming happened this past weekend and we had the awesome privilege of escorting Marian at halftime for Homecoming Court.
As with any big event, the moments can buzz by and I hardly have time to appreciate them with everything going on.
But this is one moment I did not want to just buzz on by.
I don’t think we have ever dressed up so much for a football game before. Jeremy and I arrived early to save seats for family and friends…
We prepared to walk with the court 8 minutes before halftime—pinning boutonnieres, taking pictures, listening to instructions.
As we rounded the track to wait for the time the court would walk on the field, Marian told us how the speaker would talk about each candidate. And we soon became aware that the 3 of us would walk down the 50-yard line with the attention of the crowd in the stadium all.on.us.
My heart might have skipped a few beats.
I thought we would be going as one big group.
Now I'm starting to pray we don't trip arm-in-arm.
I became increasingly aware that this was A BIG MOMENT. To have Marian honored this way by her peers was so incredible! What an honor for her to be nominated out of hundreds of students.
Even if she was not chosen as Homecoming Queen,
sharing this moment with her was an absolute gift!

Although we could not hear the announcer very well from the field, I asked him to send me her bio and this proud mom is sharing it with the world!

This was such a fun homecoming! Memorable for sure!
And not just for our girl, but for our boy too.
