There was Thursday's parade; a senior girl in a convertible and leading the "March of Champions". Where my sophomore was bouncing around remains a mystery. All that led to a bon fire. A fire so big and so hot I am shocked my head is not a skeleton cause I swear my skin was melting off from the intense heat it gave off.
Friday's pre-game band dinner with their eighth grade band guests (selling the product), football game, halftime show (with the show flags that finally arrived)
Then we slumbered. Sleeping is a beautiful thing!
Only to wake to a crazed day of beauty shop and curling irons. Nail polishes and eye shadows. Sequence and satin. And Friends. Lots of friends.
Then King Ralph and I crashed the dance; as invited guests. To see this...Homecoming Court.
It is a great day when the kids on the court aren't just the athletes or "popular" kids. This is a representation of nice kids. Kids that are liked for who the are: lots of band kids, theater kids, student council kids, smart kids....
M wasn't queen, not even a princess, but she had a great attitude going into this and when it was over she had the same great attitude...just happy her peers liked her enough to put her up there on that stage. I might be partial but I sure think she had the prettiest dress up there on that stage.
Now it's back to regular weekly scheduled activites.
