So, 2 came home a few months ago, super excited.
2 had been researching college scholarship programs.
Something we never thought she would have to do.
But we are nothing if not faithful Plan B people.
She tells me she has found an awesome program to apply too.
Something about an interview, service to the community, grades, talents.
She tells me, "This is something I would be good at, I'm going for it."
I whole heartedly agree.
She tells me there is a parent meeting on such and such a night.
So we go, her and I.
As soon as we walk into the parent meeting, I know where we are.
Arizona Junior Miss.
Did you hear me? A PAGEANT.
2 wants to do a Pageant.
They call it The Distinguished Young Women Program now.
They compete in:
Self Expression (read: formal wear)
People. It's a Pageant
It's not that I'm not excited about it, I am.
I remember girls my age competing in AZ Junior Miss.
I wish I would have had the self-esteem to do it.
There is ALOT of scholarship money to be had.
I'm so proud of her.
I'm so proud of you.
Link to the participant page, ie proof my 2 is a Pageant Girl:
