Shortly after the school year starts, all the festivities for "Homecoming" start too. Sophie got asked to the Homecoming dance but decided she didn't want to go. I asked her why.
"I don't know. I just don't feel like going. I don't really care. I am more into the educational part of school, not really the social part of school."
Okay, first of all - who says that? And second of all - I think it was a short lived phase for her. The second dance of the school year is the "Sweetheart's Dance" and she decided that she did want to attend that one.
I can't believe the fuss girls go through for these dances though. The stress of the dress, the jewels, getting their nails done, their hair and make up done ... hair and make up?! I didn't even get my nails done for my wedding and did my own hair and makeup just like I did every other day!!!! (I always maintain that I am a fairly low maintenance woman though. In hind sight, I probably should have enlisted some help that day!)
When her friend, Makayla showed up at the door to pick Sophie up (it was a girls choice, so the girls picked up their dates), I thought they looked like little book ends in their cute blue dresses and side swiped pony tails. They were so adorable ... and look just a little happy to be heading off for the night!
Haley and Chloe wanted a picture with them .... looks like a little hair and makeup does go a long way. :)
