From Futbol to Fabulous!

What a whirlwind weekend it was for the girls. They played in the Dakota Rev soccer tournament and had games Friday night, Saturday morning and Sunday morning. On Saturday after the 10 a.m. game we rushed home so the girls could shower and get ready for their big night at prom. All I can say is Thank God for Molly. She came to the house and did both of the girls hair in a very short amount of time. They looked absolutely stunning! After their dates arrived we proceeded to take a plethora of pictures (slide show to be posted soon). We started with pictures at our house and followed that with a trip to Memorial Park where all of their friends were. With 20 or more kids, it was extremely difficult to get any pictures where they were all looking at the camera. After the last photo we rushed to the High School to watch the Grand March. Every girl was dazzling and the boys were all very handsome. They all seemed to be beaming with grins from ear to ear as they took a "Walk through Paradise", which was the theme of the dance. As we left there were limousines lining the parking lot. We had a minor emergency because Stephi couldn't find her school id so she could get into the dance. Luckily John knew exactly where it was, so we drove home and brought it back to the school before their limo-bus picked the group up. As we left them at the school mom got a little teary eyed to see how beautiful and grown up the girls looked. We were comforted by the fact that they were together and both of their dates are very respectable and responsible and knew they'd be home by their curfew (which was extended to 1 a.m. for the big day). Suprisingly, Julia was home long before the curfew because she was battling a terrible cold and was exhausted. Stephanie arrived home at 1 a.m. on the nose. After some chatting about their evening we all went to bed so we could get up early and be back at the soccer field by 9:15 a.m. for our final game in the tournament. Needless to say, after the game we all went home and took a well deserved nap.
