Throwback Thursday: The Thruston Elementary School Fall Festival [Video]

Thruston Elementary School, peeps!  Who remembers the Fall Festival?  I was scrolling through Facebook Sunday and happened across Debbie Crowe's new Facebook cover photo.  Of course, back in the day, she was Mrs. Taylor and everyone at Thruston LOVED her bewitching alter ego.  In fact, "Witch Taylor" was just one of my favorite parts of the Thruston Fall Festival.  It was one of the coolest nights of the year and, to this day, I don't think I've ever been to a better Halloween party.  Do you remember this stuff?

Parker Medley: Local Middle School Student Creates Master Works of Art [Photos]

It's clearly a gift you're born with.  I personally can't even master a drawing for a game of Pictionary.  My stick figures look like they got stuck in a wood chipper.  But Parker Medley, an 8th-grade College View Middle School student, truly has an artistic eye and the golden touch to go with it.  Check out some of his pieces.  You're going to be amazed at what this 13-year-old boy can do with colored pencils!

But, it was what I saw circulating on Facebook this evening that brought tears to my eyes.
