Our Baby Girl is all grown up and going to Banquet!
But then she got sick, and for a few days, it was a big question about whether she could even go or not.
I was already out at the school, working on supper,
and didn’t get to see the great goings on that involved betting ready..
Deborah did her hair, and it turned out nicely.
(Although at this point, they both may have been wondering!)
Rachel has beautiful, long, long hair. They decided to pin it up and then did the fall in curls.
It’s hard to worry too much when you are so looking forward to an evening.
Here she is with her daddy, just before leaving for the Banquet.
He is so proud of his girlie.
From the time when she was a toddler, and he would crawl around on the floor,
hiding behind the cupboards to leap out at her,
they have been best buds.
If I didn’t know that it is so good for a teenager to be good friends with her dad,
I would be jealous!
(As it is, I am so very grateful.)
Shortly after this, he came to the school too,
and lent a much appreciated hand to the labor intensive evening.
Oh, boy! Am I glad that is done!!! I feel like my legs are made of stumps.
But then, we were the oldest parents there. Even though many of the junior class seem to be “youngest children” Certain Man and I were the oldest working in the kitchen tonight by at least two years.
I think that made me feel even more tired than I was before I realized it.
So it is off to the land of slumber for me.
I am very, very, very, very tired.
