Hail to the Hawks!

This was the theme of the 2008 Homecoming week for KU this fall. We were able to enjoy some of the festivities before the big game, which included the Homecoming parade. Some of our students worked hard pomping the floats (aka, lots of tissue paper.) We met up with some of our students, and Kelley is pictured below with Emily, one of our seniors. KU has two mascots, Big Jay and Baby Jay, and they are pictured below as they made their way along the parade route. Since we both have "purple" backgrounds from K-State, we are enjoying being open-minded and learning about KU culture and traditions. After all, we are told to become "all things to all men"!
