Every year the primary school students walk from the school in the Madison Holiday Parade.
Every year I’ve had a Primary Panda eligible to participate, I’ve successfully avoided walking.
Call me Scrooge, I know.
This year my second grader really wanted to walk.
I thought how this is my last year that one of my three will be at the school — so why not?
We ended up getting adopted into the Dachshund Divas brigade. Joe was asked to walk River whose mama, Kim Watts, was out of town.
I had SO much fun. It was a perfect day. There was a huge turnout. All I could think was . . .
Why did I never do this before?
I’m in Florida with my dad who is very ill. I want to be here but hard to be away from family at this time.
Sitting here in a big city, I’m so thankful I had last Saturday in our wonderful small town.
It will be a memory that I can carry me through this topsy turvy Christmas season.
