Prom Success

Our weekend did not have an auspicious beginning.  The softball playing-girl of the house had some serious trouble with her allergy/asthma problems after playing ball Thursday night.  This necessitated a visit to our friendly family physician on Friday.  An unexpected day off, but truly needed.  After a steroid shot and a 9 day steroid prescription she was ready to go and breathing freely.  

After a day of rest/medication she was ready to go for Prom 2017, on Saturday.  She and I went to the softball field for a few photos.  After she asked me what she was supposed to do with the chair, I didn't think things were going to go very well, but we persisted.  


We, (I), persisted.....


and persisted.....


I think they turned out pretty well.  


She went with a group of friends and had a great time.  


A local group hosts a prom after party at the bowling alley, complete with plenty of food, bowling, and other games.  

You have to pass a breathalyzer test before you enter the festivities.  

Seriously......

    1. Beth, I have posted photos of her before, but she is always in her softball uniform, or her daily uniform of jeans and a t-shirt. Certainly not dressed up like this!

  30. Gorgeous photos! I think a Prom after party at the bowling alley is a much better idea than what many teenagers do here in Australia (illegal drunken after parties)!

  34. Michelle! Where did your daughter go? Surely, this beautiful woman isn't her! I am stunned. Your photos are wonderful. And . . . those eyes! If she doesn't get a softball scholarship to college, don't worry. She can model to pay the bills.
