My nephew Cody sat next to us at the parade and I knew the parade was starting after he ran into the street and shouted, "I see the flashing lights of the firetrucks! The parade is coming!"
The parade had begun! A John Deere tractor led the route with my Girl Scouts right behind! They did an awesome job carring those flags high. I was a proud Girl Scout leader. Following behind were boy scouts, the Burton High School Band, antique cars, hot rods, the PT Cruiser club, and THE BURTON JUNIOR HIGH BAND! They, too, made me proud! I absolutely love the sixth graders. I have spent three years of my short teaching career with these kiddos. I was blessed to begin my teaching career as their second grade teacher. Two years later I moved up to fourth grade with them, and when given the chance, I choose to move up to fifth grade with them, too. They all hold a special place in my heart and watching them march in the band, I felt like a proud mommy to all of them. The parade ended with the elementary school kids riding their bicycles down the street.
