This was the big weekend for #2 Granddaughter. She looked beautiful as she sloshed through the mud and water while holding her gown up to her knees. It must have rained at least 5 inches yesterday in Northeast, Missouri. There is standing water every where. All the little creeks, small rivers, drainage ditches and some fields were flooded as I drove South toward home today- in the rain. A little rain did not deter the determined high schoolers from enjoying the party. The Granddaughter arrived safely back home at about 0530 this morning and was sleeping when I left for home. So all the drama and angst was worth the final smiles and thrill of Prom. The end of another school year on her way to "real life". I had forgotten my camera which necessitated a quick trip to the local Walmart for a cheap camera to record the big events of the night. While at my daughters home for the Prom we celebrated the #2 grandson's 15th birthday. His is moody and sullen these days. He has arrived at the " I am smarter than my parents and just about everyone else alive" age. I hope he comes out of the "black hole of teenager" alive and a better person on the other side
I, meanwhile had a chance to attend a small quilt show in Keokuk Iowa with my mother on Saturday afternoon. I was very nice. I also enjoyed the day events of preparing for the prom. I think it was a success and everyone there is exhausted and resting today. Glad to be home again. Tonight- a movie and the couch. Work again tomorrow. For those of you with Face Book- hop on over to my Facebook page and view the Prom photos. Cheers
I love red and green!
