      Ice Breaker – Homecoming

      Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

      (I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

      Question:  When was the last time you celebrated a homecoming?

      My Answer:  This week, I am celebrating two homecomings.  On Saturday, I’ll be at Grove City College to celebrate homecoming and my 20th college reunion.  It should be a fun time catching up with great friends, and visiting the campus where I met my wife.

      On Sunday and Monday, I’ll be in Wheaton, IL to celebrate my Grandma’s homecoming.  She passed away this past Tuesday, and our family is gathering to celebrate her life.  It will be a very quick visit, but it should be a wonderful time to celebrate Grandma and to catch up with my family.  (To read more about my remarkable Grandma, check out these two posts:  Say What You Need To Say and Stretching To The Finish.)

      Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment. I look forward to reading your response! (As always, feel free to share links.) And keep Stretching!
