Another busy busy Tuesday, but this one was a little different because it was 8th Grade Parent Night at school when all the incoming ninth graders' parents flock to school with all their questions and concerns, etc. Teachers give presentations about sports, academics, classes, etc. Etc etc etc.
Anyway, when I was younger and first joining all these different extracurrics and classes, my parents would go to these presentation night things and there'd always be graduating students who would give a little speech about how such-and-such program has affected their lives in this-and-that way (etc etc etc).
Well, now I'M that senior! Our school principal asked Carmen and me to give a brief speech about how Student Leadership to all the parents tonight, so this is a picture of us waiting in the wings for our turn (we were in the theater). Afterward, all the parents treated us like we were mini celebrities: shaking our hands, telling us we were "amazing" and "passionate," and swearing that they would make their kids join Leadership. It was both cool and somewhat amusing.
