October 11, 2008 – Homecoming 2008

I know you are all waiting to see what Claire wears to the Homecoming Dance this year after last year’s homemade duct tape dress. And now for something quite sad – Each day for a number of years I’ve chronicled the good, bad interesting and pedestrian on the high hopes blog. Any guesses what the most common search term people use to find the blog is? It’s not “wind turbine” “organic” or even “goats” or “chickens” but “homecoming dress” or “duct tape homecoming dress.” It is rather humbling to have more people find the site for a duct tape dress than any feature of the farm!

This year Claire stepped up and substituted duct-tape encrusted shoes with silver Converse tenners.

Other than that, she wore a conventional dress, more or less, got together before with a bunch of girls to get ready, and generally did the homecoming thing.
