Every Thursday afternoon night my daughter and the other cheerleaders on their squad use our yard to make a banner for the JV football they will cheer at that night.
Normally they like to come up with some smart and funny saying to demean the other team’s mascot. We have a big yard and them doing this wasn’t a problem until on Thursday afternoon last football season. One of the girls, Ariana, who is pretty clumsy, was trying to paint the head of a Viking (their school’s mascot) onto the banner when someone came up behind her and scared her. She jumped up with her finger still on the button of spray paint can. It unfortunately resulted in black spray paint on our cream-colored siding. To make matters worse, they were in the front yard so it was very obvious.
She felt terrible, but I understood it was an accident and had been shopping around a little bit for new siding before that anyway. I went through Home Pro Improvements and picked out a Tuscan Clay color that will hide dirt, just as a precaution.
