NCCS Prom 2011

Eeeeeek - I can hardly bring myself to type that word - Prom.  Punkin's school is very small - this year marks the 12th anniversary of the school, therefore this year is the first graduating class, which consists of a total of FIVE graduates.   The Junior class is slightly larger, and Punkin's sophmore class is much larger, with a group of about 24 or so.  So, this year is our schools first experience with a Prom.  The seniors decided to forego the typical prom type of dance, since there are so few of them, and just do more of a prom after-party, including dinner, a favorite ice cream joint, and all night bowling.  Each Jr and Sr were allowed to bring a friend/date, so several of the sophmores attended as well.    So, here are my Punkins official- unofficial first prom/non-prom photos.










(No worries Nana - just sparkling cider!)









(Oh - and there is Punkin's friend who asked her to attend the prom, standing right there beside her.)


Here are just a few of the mama and papa-razzi!!  I love how they decided to do prom - many of these kids have committed to a "no dating" rule throughout high school, so they decided to go as a group date.  Several parents chaperoned and drove them around in their vehicles.  One mom even decorated the inside of her mini-van with garlands of flowers draped all around the interior!  These kids are the best and I feel so blessed that they are a part of my Punkin's life and mine!

Great pictures. Love Kirsten's dress. SHe looks beautiful. How did you know I was wondering what was in those glasses? I did come to the conclusion that a Christian High school would NOT be serving their underage kids alcohol. Smart conclusion huh? Looks like they had fun. But....Kirsten should NOT already be that old. I miss the little girl but proud of the big girl she has turned into.

lovely! I really like the idea of no dating through highschool. I think that there's enough to worry with university applications and getting good grades,friends, etc. then trying to find a life partner!
