This past weekend was "Formal" at the big ladies' junior high. Basically, it's a dance, sponsored by the Student Council to raise money for the school. There was a DJ, refreshments and the girls get really dressed up. Coat and ties for the boys.
Rachel is shown here with her hair all in spiral curls thanks to her friend, Hunter's, aunt, who did hair and make up for Hunter and Rachel. It's hard to see in these pictures, but, Hunter and Rachel each have braids all in their hair, too. So fancy!
Samantha and Laura are also dressed to the nines. I wish I had gotten a picture of the shoes they were all wearing. They were so high and I swore they wouldn't last the night. But they did. Both our big ladies crashed as soon as they got home - they danced all night and had a great time.
On Saturday, we all went to the Mall in Little Rock. I took six kids to the mall. (My five, plus Laura, our all but in name daughter.) We went to the big mall - three stories of shops and escalators and all kinds of cool city stuff - even a parking garage. We don't get out of our small town too much. But it's good to get out and play - the kids grow up so fast.
