The freshman were assigned the "Spring Fling" dance.
Usually the freshman assigned dances never come to fruition.
The last time a freshman class actually had a dance, they came in $280 in the hole.
But this year's freshman are not an ordinary class.
As a group, they are motivated, organized, thrifty and smart.
They needed to hire a DJ, plan refreshments, make/buy decorations and advertise.
They had a "work party" at our house to make the cutest lil' Shamrocks with glitter edging.
I came downstairs to find my foyer full of teenager gear.
I went in my dining room to see teenagers...everywhere...
I went into my kitchen to find a couple of teenage boys eating my peach cobbler out of the pan.
Ummm...make yourselves right at home?
I helped the kids with the refreshments and was asked to chaperone.
How did the dance turn out?
THANK YOU FOR ASKING! THEY DID SUCH A GOOD JOB AND THE KIDS HAD SO MUCH FU...
I didn't realize that I was yelling.
You see, my eardrums are still bleeding from the loud music.
And, m...m...my b...b...bones are st...st...still vi...bra...ting...from the boom boom boom.
And, I'm pretty sure that is a good indicator that I am old.
The dance wasn't heavily attended (which is par for a freshman organized dance).
The upperclassmen are too cool to attend.
But they still made money.
And they had fun.
And it was a good experience for them to plan an event.
They are already talking about planning one next year.
Hopefully my eardrums have recovered by then...
