The little red school house turns 100

Good morning, Hope everyone has had a great weekend, Happy Monday!

This weekend our little town celebrated our annual Fall Festival and the 100th Anniversary of our little red school house on the hill. It was started in 1911 and is on the Historical Landmark registry.

My kids are the 4th generation to be Oilers. My grandparents, My Mom and all of her siblings, me and most of my cousins, and now my children. We are very proud of our town and school.

My Mom asked me to do her nails for this weekend so I came up with a cute Oiler design.

Our school colors are yellow and purple with the "Oilers" being our mascot. Oil is a big industry for this area. Caddo Lake was even the home of the very first over water oil rig in 1910. The Oil industry is still a pretty big thing in this area, chances are everyone knows somebody that works or has worked in the oil field at some point.

Anyways, I don't mean to bore you with my little history lesson hahaha.

I also did my nails

We had a great weekend at the festival, seeing old friends, listening to great music and eating good food. Can't wait to do it all again next year. :)
