I Really LOVE Teenagers
|The Before Picture...|
|Lizzie & Hop|
No, really, I do, I'm not being a smarty pants here. Yes, they have drama. Yes, they can be trying at times. But I'll take a room of 15 year olds over a room of 2 year olds any day!
Homecoming was this past Friday. Both boys had precious dates...see pictures. :) Hopson and I had to divide and conquer. Every time this has happened & I've had to trust him to take pictures of which ever child he is trailing I've ended up with 2 pictures and at least one was blurry and the other was off center with no one looking at the camera. This year, I was VERY specific about what I wanted. (he was going with Harry) I have to give him props, he took some great pictures. He took some with Haley's mom's camera in it too, but I can crop that out. See below, it's rather funny. (insert eye roll here.) Dads, what are you going to do with them?
|Haley & Harry|
We had about 40 sophomores over for the...duh duh duh...after party. It was wild; it was crazy; we had the cops called on us; and I loved every second of it. Yes, you did just read that the cops were called to my house. Don't know who did it; don't really care. The kids were having good clean fun in my backyard & I'm not apologizing for it. No one was drinking, doing drugs, or the other thing that begins with S and ends with X. They were squealing because they were throwing shaving cream on each other, and when you get 40 teenagers together at 1 am, they are going to be loud.
|How Harry & Pete|
cleaned up Hop's room :/
Earlier in the day I realized that the girls were going to go into Hop's room to change, and since he is an 18 year old boy, I knew his room was a mess. I asked Harry & Pete to please help me, since I was cooking and getting everything ready for later that night, to clean Hop's room. About 20 minutes later they came down and said it was all done. Did I worry how they had cleaned it up? No, I was just thankful I didn't have to do it. I should have known...I should have checked....shoulda, coulda, woulda. They shoved everything into Hop's closet. Thanks guys, 'preciate 'ya. Oh well, beggars and all that. (insert head shake here)

I think I had more fun than the children had. I always laugh my head off when we have a group over. They are a great group of kids and are welcome at my house anytime!!! I hope I get to have them over again, they make my day. Thanks everyone for letting in on your homecoming memories. I hope when you look back in 20 years you can smile just a little.
Celebrating Life & having a house full of kids and laughter,
