Prom Update

So here is a picture! I could lie and tell you I am the thin, beautiful, youthful one, but I am not! Although, she is one precious young woman and the people at my house are quite fond of her!

The prom was so much fun and I will totally sign up to help again! I was in charge of the "back door" and was told no one was to come through that door. When someone knocked, I ignored it just to be safe. I ended up not opening the door for the assistant principals and their wives. I plead true to my orders and we got a good laugh!

My Dear got to park cars, lucky him! I had lots of nice people to talk with while at my post. What a blessing to talk with adults who love kids and are making an impact in their lives just buy showing up for work.

My Dear and I attempted to move to the dance floor with the kids. It was fun to watch them having fun! Apparently, some of them had discussed what My Dear's comments may be to them while they danced. As soon as we started to dance, one of them yelled at us, "You are too close, there is no room for Jesus!" Which we replied, " Good thing He is in our hearts!" Seems that is exactly what they had decided they would tell My Dear if he said something to them about dancing too close. The tables were turned! What a fun night! Wonder what the sitter will charge for both of us to get to go to the after prom fun next year? Better start saving now!

I'm glad your prom turned out nice. Ours was on a boat, so we just had to make sure no one was thrown off. Although, if one more kid called me "Mam," I was gonna throw myself off. My hubby did have to walk a ton to their cars, cuz the nearest parking garage was closed, and this was in Detroit. Need I say more? We're gonna take dance lessons before next year.

Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog and leaving the comment about your prayer triggers...especially the one about the curls! I have a child that has curls - I'll add this one to my triggers too!
Have a terrific weekend!
