The high school students in our neighborhood attend a beautiful brand spanking new school that opened in the fall of 2004 and this past June the first class of students that attended it for all four years of high school graduated. Many of these graduates came home this weekend for the homecoming football game on Friday and the homecoming dance on Saturday.
We invited one of our dear neighbors to bring over her daughter who was going to the homecomig dance to take some photos in our gardens. So here is Carol and here is her daughter modeling the deep purple dress and bag that she selected for the homecoming dance. We didn't get to see or photograph prince charming who was her date for the evening. But isn't this girl beautiful!
Oh, to be young and beautiful and going to your very first homecoming dance---what a delight. Better yet, to be the mother who gets to experience this big event in her daughter's life---what a touching moment to shed tears of joy and delight.
