COMING "HOME"

This past weekend was one of celebration, reminiscing, and pretending. My husband's high school is being demolished, replaced by a larger, tech advanced building. School colors being red and Viking blue (yes, "viking" blue), he truly bleeds "Viking" blue. His experience was unmatched; he was an outstanding student, athlete, and friend. Unfortunately, I never shared in his four year journey as we attended different schools and didn't meet until college.
 
With the destruction pending, school officials decided the building deserved a farewell celebration. So, we set off for his "home", walked the hallways one last time, sat in desks while staring at blank chalkboards imagining them filling with knowledge to share, cheered "Let's Go Vikings", reminisced with classmates and teachers, and had one final run of the bases. It was a fulfilling experience to finally spend a day in high school walking hand-in-hand.
 
We turned this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity into a pretend high school date. So, naturally, he took me for dessert at the town ice cream shop and then headed to the local park and walking trail for some fun and foliage admiring. We also managed to catch a sneak peek of the production crew and sets for the movie Big Stone Gap, which is of course being filmed in the town. I felt like a giddy high school girl. We always wondered what it would have been like to date in high school and we finally got our answer!
