This has certainly been a celebration week! Today's mock weddings in MFL (Marriage and Family Living) turned out well. It was a very abbreviated ceremony -- 4 minutes max -- The student-turned-pastor talked about Agape love while dressed in his tuxedo and bright white tennis shoes. The other kids couldn't figure out where he learned that big word. Seriously, he did a great job -- both class periods. The girls looked gorgeous and the guys were handsome!
The couple in the first wedding exchanged ring pops and he gave her a peck on the cheek --
The guys in the second wedding rocked in to a song playing from the "groom's" pocket. 'Sort of set the mood for the rest of the ceremony.
The cake they baked was ever so good -- decorating was done by students --
Two of my students who were in the wedding and also are a part of our Thursday Youth Alive Group, planned the greatest senior send-off while they were hanging out after the wedding and eating cake at our "reception". I was so impressed with the discussion they led just two hours later on "what to do when you come off the high of a Great Summer Camp experience"
My Life Skills students broke it all down at the end of the day for a single piece of wedding cake.
It's at times like these that I see my students rise to the occassion -- everyone pitching in to help it all happen. It makes this tired teacher very proud tonight of all 115 of 'em.
