At any rate, I heard some of my young women talking via FB about getting asked, who was 16 who wasn't, who would go IF they got asked....the usual excited chatter from Sophomore girls who desperately want to be asked to a dance.
I decided I'd host my own Homecoming party for the girls that either weren't old enough to go or didn't get asked. It was gonna be our own Homecoming Pity Party except that we were gonna have so much fun that no felt bad about not going to the high school's Homecoming
We started the evening off with pizza
Did you know that girls will pretty much act like idiots if it means they win the game? Yeah, I know!
We ended the evening with the movie "13 Going on 30" A nice reminder to not try and grow up too fast. No need to hurry along. Waiting until you are 16 or even not dating after that for awhile is totally okay. As the wise Billy Joel tells us, "Vienna waits for you".
I made all the girls pose for a traditional dance picture with smiling Jesus. Of course we were missing two of them, but this was our group.
And dang, we had fun! Might need to make this one a tradition!
