Yesterday was prom. I'm not sure what it is about the middle school kids here, but they are obsessed with Tim and my relationship. You would think they were trying to set us up. They have been bugging Tim for weeks about asking me to prom and have been asking me for weeks if I'm going to go with Tim. I guess Tim told his middle school classes a little about how the asking is done in Idaho and they wanted to try their hand at it. Last week I came back from PE class to see this on my classroom door (see picture).
A few days later I answered Tim in a proper Idaho fashion. I blew up a bunch of balloons and placed one letter of my answer in each balloon. Although, the balloons I used were ancient and had mostly deflated by the time Tim and his students got to them.
This year prom was much better attended than last year and the general population was much more dressed up. I saw only one person at prom in sweatpants and no one in pajamas. Most the girls were in dresses and about half the boys were dressed up with at least a button up shirt and tie. Tim contributed a lot to prom this year. He was in charge of gathering, previewing, and editing the music and taking pictures. He dedicated quite a few hours with his two projects.
It snowed several inches in the past couple of days. Yes, it is May. I wonder if this place is every going to be snow free. On the other hand, the sunlight is showing signs of summertime. Last night it was light until nearly 11:00 pm and it has been getting light around 6:00 am.
Earlier in the week I finished my sampler afghan. This has been a project I've been working on since December. It has been a nice escape when I come home from work and just need to get my mind off of school. I think I'm ready to take a crocheting break though. I've had my fill for awhile.
