It was fun!
Two years later, Son (#3) was asked.
Two years after that, Son (#4).
Then Daughter (#5).
And this year, our sixth little one, Daughter (#6) was asked.
However, we have a Jr. High student this year, Son (#1), and he was nominated by his class and teachers to be the 7th grade attendant.
So for the first time, we had TWO in Homecoming!
And again - FUN!
We have been so blessed with family and friends who help out a LOT! My sweet sister-in-law loaned us the dress for Daughter (#6) and the coat, shirt and pants for Son (#1).
It was a great evening. My sweet little girl surprised us all. She's been more of a momma's girl than any of our kids. Often timid - most often stubborn! I never would have imagined in a million years that she would do what she did tonight. Amazing. Without a flinch. We've seen SUCH growth in her this year. After the first ROUGH weeks of Kindergarten, she's really matured. I'm so proud of her.
Here is the evening in pictures!
First the hair:
I thought I'd try to replicate this hair do.
It was ambitious of me - not being a hair dresser and all.
And yet - it turned out lovely!
Here she is, ready to go!
Waiting. . . waiting. With her fellow Kindergartner and her handsome big brother.
It was DARK in the gym - the pictures aren't great. But they both did wonderfully! And more pictures after.
The homecoming court (or most of it).
Daughter and her friend.
Son and his fellow 7th grade attendant.
With their cousin who was the 8th grade girl.
Brother and sister.
And before bedtime - my sweet girl and I. So much fun!
