Prom is in the air. Not only is this part of my daughter's weekend activities. She had a trap shooting meet last night, has FFA competition practice this morning, Prom tonight, post prom activities, then leaves tomorrow morning for the State FFA competition for a couple days.
This girl has been busy the past couple weeks getting ready for the FFA contest, preparing for her Global Leadership trip fundraiser, attempting practice for golf & trap shooting <in NW Iowa, this has been difficult>, high school & college homework and she decided to pick up a couple shifts at her job < of which she is on a LOA due to activity overload>. Kids are encouraged to be involved. It's said that a busy kid is one who stays out of trouble. With this, I do agree. There are so many pressures growing up. Following or being a leader, positive & negative decisions. I feel that being involved and having mentors that expect good behavior in order to stay in the activity helps guide the kids toward positive things.
But when is down time? For this girl, she will get a break around August 1st. MAYBE!! #lifewithateen #daughter #graduate2018 #busykids #teengirls #whatsnext
