Please note; the “School’s Out” story consists of three parts.
June in Honeycomb Valley! June meant summer, warm weather, long days, swimming in the ocean, and, the last weeks of school!
For the kids and teens of Honeycomb Valley this was an exciting month, for the teachers of The Beehive it was mostly a very busy month. Two kids had to take their final exams, eleven kids would move up a class after summer and then there was the organisation of the prom for the teens and the last day of school for the kids. A busy, busy month!
With the start of June, the time had finally come for Anna and Wesley to take their final exams. Wesley wasn’t too bothered, but there was a lot of pressure on Anna. She HAD to do well. Her teen pregnancy had already smudged her father’s good name, if she failed her exams too, she was bound to be disowned. (Read about final exams in my Education post, here)
A week later, it was time for the most exciting night of the year of the teens of Honeycomb Valley: The prom!
Sadie soon arrived and the girls quickly got to work.
Make up and hair…
…and a hug!
Rachel’s sister Ruby wasn’t too fussed about this whole getting ready part, she was done in a jiffy.
Side note: Last year I got all excited about Sandy‘s idea to have all the girls wear the same dress to prom, so I decided to copy this plan. This year, we both repeated this, and it became once again clear how much we think alike when we turned out to have picked the exact same dress for our girls without knowing it! I thought about changing the dress for my girls when Sandy posted her prom non-story and I saw she used the same dress, but she talked me out of it saying the dress was too pretty not to be used. Anyway, back to the prom!
The oldest child of the Murray clan was gone before his sisters were even finished to pick up his prom date like a real gentleman.
At 8, the prom started and the teens started to arrive.
Anna apparently felt a high school prom was beneath her now she was almost leaving and was annoyed with her best friend Suzan who did seem to have a good time.
But Suzan was right to have fun, because it was fun!
There was dancing…
And more dancing…
James and Jill’s dance didn’t last long though, because James had to get up on the stage (and by stage I mean a small platform with some instruments) for The Hot Wings‘ first ever performance with Sadie!
If she was nervous, she hid it very well!
The crowd seemed to enjoy it too! (Wesley! Stop perving on Kyra! The girl is 13!)
And were soon followed by others. There were some very unexpected combinations… (and also quite a lot of girls leading… Sims…)
Of course every high school prom has its wallflowers…
Much too soon the prom came to an end and it was time for the group pictures.
