How did it happen that Chris is on the end of his high school experience? Senior Prom was last weekend. SENIOR! Sigh.
He made his own corsage this year - his first flying completely solo. I didn't help him much with last fall's Homecoming corsage either, but I wasn't even there when he made this one. He did a fine job. He calls the flower... a flower. But all the other bits of frippery - ribbons, small flowers, beading - is "garbage." Little insights into a teenaged boy's mind. He chose great garbage and arranged it well, didn't he? He was not disappointed to have an excuse to run to the store and get a new tie. All good-looking: the corsage, and the tie. But especially this handsome boy who isn't fond of having his picture taken!
