(GHA highschool banquet.)
We had a great little classydinner in a room with beautiful old woodwork, high ceilings and a long table at Hotel Mbg. t`s 2 blocks from our house so it was pretty sweet for us. We walked there in a quaint kind of way. I wore a vintage clutch and broach that night, so I was feeling very 1920s. (Imagination is a great destination.)
Our main street could almost be classy if it wasn`t so run-down. Great old buildings.
Who IS the boy in the foreground who just refuses to smile (see first photo). I like it. It`s like a: to-cool-for-skool/ this-party-is-lame look, rolled into one.
(He`s a happy kid, really.)
Karston winces in delight as his Coke now makes a loooong downturn, at the end of a rollarcoaster kind of drinking experience.
Long straw fun. One of the cah-RAZY things young kids do these days.
(Mr. K mainly captioned that one. If you students don`t like our captioning skills/high humor ability take it up with your principal tomorrow!)
(If you think that`s bad– try LIVING with a principal. I overspend at Target… and it`s all (gruffly) “Come to my office” for me.)
Tiffany wastes a moment of eye contact on me. Point that look across the table… 🙂
Malinda and Miss K– 2 wonderful ladies.
Senior boys will (“will” as in a legal declaration) the things they`ll leave behind next year to their underclassmen.
Apparently Jordan went with “funny” and Colby went with “moving”.
Mr. K, always a hoot and center of times that are fun (that`s what Scott thinks). Kayla eagerly awaits him demonstrating the “wing, wing” dollar bill joke on her.

Doesn`t Scotty (pictured in photo before, bottom left) look like the guy above? I thought so.
hey, I can`t help it, I love a good look-a-like match up.
I really should shut down this housewifely blog-of-bore, and open up a new one where I just post pictures of all the people I see in a day and the people they remind me of.
Whenever I see a choir of any kind, I listen to the music for the first 10 minutes, and then I spend the rest of the night trying to come up with someone else each choir member reminds me of.
I once went to hear SMBI chorus alone and thought it`d be fun to text G and tell him all the look-a-likes I came up with. He ended up thinking it was really annoying. But, I mean, he wasn`t even there to see the wonder of it all, so no wonder he thought it was an uncool activity.
Kayla contemplates the deeper meaning to the joke.
High school, minus a few… (Click to view larger)
A SUPER great bunch of kids. I always thoroughly enjoy hangin` out with dem– lots of laughs, fo sho’.
No one talks like that around here? Oh. Right. But when texting…? Not even then. Okay… I`ll just go back to mom-speak then.
“Elle, GET OUT OF THE PANTRY. Galeeeeen…”
A few girls save money on senior pictures by getting a teacher to snap a few. (jk)
(Matt again, dreams of a more happenin` par-tay. Alex declares it a good one! (“Two bent thumbs up!”))
After we ate, the kids went on a scavenger hunt here in town. They had to find a list of 12 items: an engraved date, graffiti, the number 18, a tire not on a car, 3 lawyer`s office signs (Etc.)
Then they came back to our house and hung out, talked, watched royal wedding clips, and ate a chocolate cake I tried to make that boiled over in the oven. Not my finest hour ever. Also not my finest cake ever.
All in all, a SuperFun night. My husband ADORES these kids (they probably don`t know how much). So it`s always fun when I get to be involved in a night like this.
You kids make me laugh. Thanks! 🙂
