Sundays in My City: Homecoming Edition

Sundays in My City, hosted by the beautiful Unknown Mami,
is your chance to see glimpses of communities all over the world.
It was Homecoming Week in lots of communities all over the world this week,
including ours.

Like her brother, Kendall has been very involved in making her school's Homecoming special.
Like last year and the few years before, a group of Student Council kids
descended on our house the night before "Spirit Day"
to mix up 30 large boxes of pudding...

and prepare a challenge involving players having to eat repulsive food items.

They had jalapenos, baby food, fresh broccoli, hard-boiled eggs, and garlic cloves.
(Repulsive when you're in high school, I guess.)
Dawn and I helped by suggesting the addition of soy sauce to the broccoli
and molasses and hot pepper flakes to the hard-boiled eggs.
They were a hit (if crying and vomiting contestants are any barometer :)

The dance was the highlight of the weekend, of course, and I took lots of pics, but when I saw this one, the rest paled in comparison, so this is the only one I'm posting...

Visit Unknown Mami for more shots from around the globe.
