Let me start off with an apology-I am sorry that I do not know how to rotate pictures --you'll have to rotate your computer .
Tuesday, while Marsha and I were in the middle of trying to finish Katie’s Beef Proficiency amidst all the other chaos in my life, in marches Katie and rereads the text in which she had received moments earlier …. I’ve been trying to call you but can’t get a hold of you. I don’t think I can make it Friday……..
Note it is Tuesday, 2 1/2 days before the prom on Friday. Immediately everyone in the lunch bunch offered a replacement …Lori suggested Renee who could lead the Congo …Marsha offered Adam who undoubtedly is a good looking guy …Patsy recommended David because he likes to dance and Minnie sat speechless. Then Patsy thought, well maybe all of us could go and take Clara Nell’s ride and use a red beach towel as the red carpet. My suggestion was Will and luckily his mother was nearby and thought that was a great idea.
However, he didn’t have enough time to get a tux but had he recently purchased an awesome suit. Which I must say he looked very handsome in. Long adventure short, she had a cute date and they had whole lot of fun.
She had an awesome dress, long dangly earrings and a slit cut a little too high for her mother’s liking…but she looked stunning. Did I mention it was zebra print?
Katie, Will, Racheal and Trey headed out for the big night in Meme’s car. They ate supper at The Great Outdoors in High Springs and then went to the Prom at the Gateway Grand. Katie danced the night away (except the slow songs)with her best friend Rachael and their dates. It was truly a night she will never forget. She even taught some of the kids the famous Cotton Eye Joe. Cheri said Katie was PRICELESS-- I already knew that.
Did I mention that Katie’s life saver was Tyler’s Best Friend Will? When they got to the Prom he looked at Katie and said “Let’s don’t slow dance cause that would be awkward.” Katie agreed.
After the prom, Katie and Will meet Tyler and Lacey back at Meme and Papa’s and played ROCK BAND till 4 in the morning. When she got home Saturday morning, I asked how her first date was and she I wouldn’t call that a date—it was Will.
I think everybody had a great time and Will has decide to go to his prom ---without Katie. And Rachael, who only went because of Katie, is already planning for next year's prom. Charlee said she was picking out Katie's dress next year. I tried to explain that Kate didn't pick out her (Chalree's) clothes and she quickly reminded me that yes she does in the mornings sometimes and therefore she deserved the right to pick out her prom dress.
I just wonder what happened to the sweet little the girls I taught in third grade that only wanted more AR points?
I think these two girls will be friends until eternity. God gives us the best gifts---friends.
What could make the evening more like a fairy tale than a hero coming home? A few weeks before Jarred came home at Christmas he served a term of duty in Afghanistan. During that time he fought in one of the most intense battles. Jarred was award the Bronze Medal for his participation in the battle. Anyway, we are very PROUD of him and his accomplishments. Remember to pray daily for our men and women serving our Country. Katie, Charlee and I have made a pac that every time we see an American Flag that pray for Jarred. Charlee is the most faithful about this. Her prayers are precious.
Hope everyone had a great Easter… Katie was suppose to leave Wednesday for ENGLAND but her plans have changed due to a medical condition with the lady inwhich she was traveling with . Anyway she has a passport and ready to travel.
