Underclassmen Should Not Be in the Homecoming Court

"It has been brought to our attention that this year all grade levels will be able to run for homecoming court. Confidently speaking for all seniors, we are extremely upset by this idea.

Senior year comes with privileges that underclassmen do not have, including running for homecoming court, prom, and oktoberfest. Students wait three years before they are allowed these privileges, which also adds to the excitement of senior year.

Seniors are, in a sense, kings and queens of the school. We have finally reached the social hierarchy to proudly say that we have worked hard the past four years, and can proudly shout our numbers, knowing that this is finally OUR year!

We strongly believe that homecoming court should solely be for seniors. If not the whole court, then perhaps just king and queen. Juniors, sophomores, and freshmen could run for prince and princess, each grade having a pair, seniors included. This brings a compromise if seniors cannot completely "rule" the court.

We hope that you are able to find something agreeable.

Thank you for your time,

The Class of 2014 (ONE FOUR!)"

We've relaxed a bit and just go with the flow now, and while she's currently in a dress-obsessed phase we feel she's pretty balanced. She enjoys painting her nails with grandma (I haven't painted my own in 5+ years), but is also surprisingly athletic; she loves art projects, blocks, and cars alike. We are very pleasantly surprised by what life is like with 2 daughters. Oh, and the reusing of clothes if you get two of the same gender is totally overrated. Did you know that no matter how clean you think an item is, if you put it away for a few years it is almost guaranteed to have brown stains all over it when you pull it out again? Ok, exaggerating a it. But I had no idea that traces of breastmilk hiding in the fibers of clothes would darken over time. It was fun reusing a few pieces that escaped that fate, but many were too stained, surprisingly out of style, or the wrong season (we had November and May babies.) Enjoy buying new things for your new baby, and picking out a few of your favorites from Miles' collection to save. I'm slightly mourning the fact that we're done having kids, but I recently gave away all of our baby stuff (after saving a few favorites) and it actually felt really good. Kind of symbolic of one phase ending, and celebrating the fun things that lay ahead.Thanks for sharing your news! I'm really happy for you June 28, 2011 8:07 pm
