She didn't go to school looking like this today. It was pep assembly day - Juniors vs Seniors, a lot of smack talk going on.
Melanie has painted her body no less than 4 time this school year, there have probably been well over a dozen times that a costume of some sort has been created for school attire. And there is often a tray of food being prepared for someone's birthday or the lunchtime courtyard potluck lunch. I've never had to worry about her grades, but when I realize how much socializing is going on at school, I sometimes wonder when she is getting educated!
