Back to the Past

I've often been described as as an old soul.  I can converse about the different eras, sing songs from different decades and  I've always  loved wearing dresses from the olden times.

So I was so excited when I learned that our field demonstration for this year would showcase dances from the 50s to the 2000s.  Good thing, I was part of the core team.  I took it upon myself to write the script for the whole program and decade introductions plus AVPs.  I was also tasked to come up with this year's theme which I did:  Paulinians sailing forth on the winds of the past.

Aside from that, I was also this year's emcee and I took this opportunity to dress like a 50s girl.  I asked our school seamstress to make an additional costume for me, curled my hair, borrowed my hunny bed's white handkerchief and tied it around my head like a headband, threw on a cardigan and a pair of white rubber shoes and voila! I think I looked like someone from the 50s, more or less.  My son said I looked like a waitress at a 50s diner.  That must mean I did a good job.

And here I am with my son who insisted on wearing his ID when I said I wanted to have a picture taken with him.

It was truly a happy day for me, I got to do what I wanted to do and I got to watch my son perform.....oh, but wait, I have one regret....I wish the teachers had a chance to dance too!

  1. This looks so great! I am a bit of an old soul too - I love history (as a subject) and love some of the old fashions, especially the 30's, 40's and 50's.

    Great pictures!
