Stefan's Senior Prom

Senior Prom
Paris High School 2012
Suits, tuxedos, short dresses, long dresses, wrist corsages and boutonnieres.
Classic cars, fast cars, double-decker buses, limousines.
Styles are changing and you can see just about anything these days.
The event wouldn't be complete without pictures downtown at Culbertson Fountain and
Holy Cross Episcopal Church. This year we were reduced to just over 30 minutes to
take all the pictures that will have to suffice and keep these memories of our children dressed to the nines; finishing one more hurdle as they leave high school life behind. 
Here are some of the shots I took.

Fun arrived with the young man on the left. One of the Special men God created and the
life of the party. He had everyone laughing. Special thanks to his teacher Liz who sees to it that the special needs students always take part and dress up for prom.

Stefan and Trey, friends through all their high school years.
A fourth generation of friends with our two families.

Part of the crowd that would come and go as the students moved around from
site to site. You bring your chairs and watch the show.
Candace and I used to buy our favorite pizza, grab a Dr. Pepper and make this a night.
She was homeschooled but knew some of the kids so it was always a fun night for us.

Having graduated from private Christian school I never went to prom but as one former
public school classmate said, "I don't think kids looked like movie stars in our days." 

And because he's mine, I post mostly about him.

So proud of Stefan who made the decision to buy a suit that will last him through the years instead of renting the traditional tux and losing his $200. for one night of maybe that homeschooling stuck with him more than he thinks.
