Homecoming week was a complete crazy week . It was full of last minute preparations ,kids frustrated ... and of course the Alumni .... Yes them ,this was a week full of anxious kids that wanted everything done that was the signature of the school they represented . Laney is a school rich in tradition ... to be exact our school is 60 years old This school has a strong Alumni association dating back to the 50'S ..... and I do mean strong . The Cosmetology Department worked like a real salon , performing skills that included everything from barbering ,to creating red Mohawks for the band , make-up for the dancing girls ,I was swaped every period from children I have never seen at the school in my life !!! This week was crazy ... and this was my first homecoming ,last year I had a night job,so Homecoming did not effect me , but this year I was blessed with the old with the old and the new .... Homecoming made me totally wore OUT!!!! I will not be that wore out next year , I will have a plan A and B .

Girl, I know exactly what you mean about Homecoming week! Kinda makes me feel like I am back in a Salon during Homecoming season or Wedding season. The bad thing about it is, High school girls are much more picky than the average woman! Im sure you did a great job and everything came together. Hopefully a little rest is on the way for all of us!!
