The first day back at school!
That means moms will either be boo-hooing or woo-hooing (or possibly a little bit of both).
But you can bet all mamas will be snapping a few photos before the kids head off for their first day back at school. So since we know you have those cute snapshots on your smartphone, Facebook wall or camera memory, we want to show them off here on nwaMotherlode.com, too!
These can be homeschooled kids, private/public school kids or even your big college kid!
The giveaway part: We’ll choose one back-to-school photo at random and that mama will win two tickets to see Foreigner in concert at The Amp plus dinner at P.F. Chang’s!
Foreigner will be at The Amp on Aug. 29. Click here for tickets if you don’t want to risk missing out on the show.
Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with ten multiplatinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits. Founded in 1976, the band is comprised of Mick Jones, Kelly Hansen, Jeff Pilson and Tom Gimbel.
Their debut album propelled the group onto the music scene and featured hits such as “Feels Like The First Time” and “Cold As Ice.” In 2013, Jones was inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the band released Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits. The band continues to produce sold out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million.
