This was so fun and I'm so glad o did it. This has been going on for 60 something years. It's like a right of passage in Ruston for little girls. She rode in the parade a few weekends ago then the ice cream social/rehearsal was yesterday and the pageant was this morning. My fav quote, "mom I got a trophy! My first trophy!" And she came home and displayed it on her nightstand. She had a blast throughout all of the events and was especially happy a few of her friends did it with her. These girls are precious; their hearts are huge!
