I remember during high school…the school year was not marked by the months or the quarters, but by the chance to dress up fancy and go to a school dance. We had formal dances all through the year; Homecoming, Winter Formal, Sadie Hawkins, Junior Prom, Senior Ball.
These dances weren’t in the school gym or cafeteria…we did have some of those too…but these were at nice places and always followed a nice dinner with cloth napkins.
The high school my girls go to has not really believed in too many fancy dances. The Homecoming dance was right after the game in the cafeteria…very informal when you consider all the football players and cheerleaders are sweaty and dirty.
But fortunately, the parents involved with the booster club came from my generation of school dances. This year they put together a very nice Winter Semi-Formal. So we did the shopping, and primping and prepping to get ready for the event.
Last night my camera and I sat for an hour waiting for all the girls to get themselves ‘put together’ for the dance.
It was worth the wait We have girls that wear sweatshirts, jeans and boots by day…but clean up real nice!
They can still be kind of goofy though
Lots of sparkle…but they definitely out shined even their dresses!
My two girls! Holy cow they are growing up fast!
Getting them in one place for a picture took an hour But it was worth the wait!
Then they headed off to dinner…at Taco Bell…before going to the dance. No cloth napkins there!
There are some things that are hard to change….
