The day started off with Solo and Ensemble at 8am. We got a little lost trying to find the school's driveway, but we managed. The kids did their thing and we were out of there by 10:15. We stopped to pick up the corsage.
Upon arrival at home, #1 finished up his homework - teacher decided Monday would be a great day to have a math test... Yeah... thanks.
After lunch #1 started on cleaning Mr.'s car. He vacuumed it. He washed the windows. He got the stains out of the rug. He made it smell nice. He washed the outside. That car has NEVER been cleaner!!
We headed out to go to #1's girl's dad's house. Mr. rode with #1 in that spit polished ride and was very impressed with #1's efforts! I can only hope he details my car next.
We arrived at the house to take pictures. The whole family was there..
But it boils down to this:
She walked into the room and #1 was speechless - he's still talking about how pretty she looked. Her dress was beautiful. Her hair was amazing. She is such a pretty girl anyway - how could she not be simply stunning?
#1 was handsome in his tux and his date was simply lovely!
The kids could win prizes including savings bonds and a senior could even a new car! It was a terrific night! It was a late night, but it was a really terrific way to keep the kids in and safe.
#1's girl's mom worked part of the Prom as well as the After Prom Party. She was impressed with how well behaved most of the kids were - especially ours! (Phew!) She was not impressed with how some of the kids were dancing - some of the moves she saw were reminiscent of something you'd see strippers do with a pole... Fortunately, my son is a terrific dancer who doesn't dance like that - especially when on a date with a very nice girl. (Cotillion pays off again!!)
As for the commute home - he was very glad that his parents were driving and that he was the passenger. He was one tired puppy!
