Great Ending to a Great Week !!!

So Prom day has finally arrived! Yay! Love seeing all the kids cleaned up and looking so grown up!

I love, love, love T's gown and can't wait to see how everything comes together. Her dress is spectacular and everyone in the shop stopped and stared when she came out of the dressing room. Several girls told her "that's your dress and you're crazy if you don't buy it." She originally tried the dress on in white (size 0) but didn't like the way it fit across her (non-existent) hips so she went with the size 2 in light blue. It was definitely one of those "a-ha" moments. We both looked at each other and said, "this is the one."

I haven't seen the whole package yet . . . the hair, the nails, the shoes, the gown, the make-up. I saw the dress and the shoes before alterations but haven't seen it all together (T had a lot of the train cut off her dress and she had some strap adjustments as well). She had her hair cut a couple of weeks ago and at that time they experimented with a couple of possible hairstyles for tonight. She's still so tan from the beach so she'll look like a total Barbie doll tonight. She'll have a good time tonight w/ her friend Jay and her group is a really nice bunch of kids that have been to the house several times. The weather looks like it's going to be great for photos. T's nice and relaxed and is having lunch w/ a couple of girl friends after school today before her hair & nail appointments.

Although today is all about Prom, this week was all about lacrosse. I sat at 5 different lacrosse games this week and boy is my ass tired! Tuesday the boys JV and Varsity played Mountain Brook, Wednesday KJ and T both had their first games of the season (KJ played Mountain Brook and T played John Carroll). Thursday the boys JV and Varsity played John Carroll but I went to KJ's game vs. Berry. Lot of highs and lows this week . . . on the one hand, I think the girls Varsity team is going to be very good (they stomped JC 19 to 4 --something like that; T had a couple of goals and assistants and unbelievably, not a SINGLE yellow card!! Whoo hoo!). This is definitely going to be a rebuilding year for the boys. There have been some issues this year w/ several of the kids that resulted in suspensions and it's just a really young, in-experienced squad to begin with. This is the first year our side of town has had a middle school girls team and the rainy spring kept practices to the bare minimum. They lost both games this week but definitely did extremely well all things considered. Some of the girls had never seen a game before, never held a stick in their hands and had no idea about offense or defense or where they needed to be on the field. They are a very sweet group of girls and are very kind to KJ (she's the only 5th grader on the squad). They all run out to the middle of the field and jump on her after each game even though they've lost.
