We had homecoming in our town this weekend and my kids opted not to go. The school has made some ridiculous changes for dances (like all lights all the way on, and, if rumor has it, something like a foot space between dancers at all times - so no slow dancing),  so they decided to "hang out" instead. Reminds me of the movie "Footloose!" I think the changes have the opposite effect they intended as now kids will just go somewhere else when they could have been at the school with adult chaperones. Anyway, these are my two daughters and their boyfriends, who are essentially brothers themselves as one's parents are also the guardians of the other. We had a little impromptu photoshoot and they did dinner and a movie. No puritanical school "dance" necessary.
