Wordful Wednesday - Her First Homecoming

My teenage daughter's first Homecoming was last weekend. These are a few pics of the occasion:

This is the Sophomore float that was in the Homecoming parade. Shelby worked hard all week helping with it. The float placed 1st in the parade.

There was a snafu in the hair styling. I had set her up a hair appointment at a beauty salon but apparently got the time wrong. I had just gotten out of the shower when I got a call from the hair stylist that Shelby was almost half an hour late to her appointment. I had it wrote down wrong in my date book. (What good's a date book if you don't write the times down right?) So we improvised and I did her hair myself. Although it was not a salon professional look and it took me forever to do, it worked out fine.

This dress did double duty. We bought this dress for Shelby earlier in the year for a local pageant. At a great price, might I add. It's gotten its money's worth.
This is Shelby in front of my husband's 1965 Impala. She's been begging him to give it to her for her 16th birthday. The car's not very girly but it's the one she wants.

Shelby went to Homecoming with a few of her friends. She was asked by a couple of boys but declined. She said she didn't want a date because she wanted to have a good time without being tied down and worrying about somebody else's feelings. I prefer it that way. Her and her friends went to a local park to have their pics taken. Unfortunately, we didn't have a lot of space to take pics in. Apparently the park we chose is the same park that a hundred other Homecoming teens and three weddings chose as well.
