But…Do You Feel You’re Missing Out by Not Going to Homecoming?
It was all over Facebook this weekend. Homecoming.
So…I asked Becca if she felt that she was missing out. (This does concern me. I mean, if I saw all the posts, then I know SHE saw them too. And I was truly concerned. WAS she missing out on all the fun?)
And she said, “Psh…no!” (But with much more attitude than I can convey here…)
She has no desire to be involved with Homecoming. Courts and dresses and dances and what she calls, “high school politics.”
That’s not to say that she doesn’t enjoy the homeschool dances that are held on a regular basis (formal and informal). She does!
How, you ask?
It’s just less stress…and pressure…and the feeling that you need to keep up (or measure up). And the “popularity” aspect of it of it all.
Not that we’re knocking the idea of Homecoming. We’re most definitely not! (Please see my other blogs re: our “live and let live” philosophy.) We’re glad that our teen friends enjoyed their dances (and Homecoming festivities)!
It’s a “to each their own” thing, really. Homecoming is just not Becca.
And if she ever does feel like she’s missing out? Well, then, she always has the option of going back to public school. (Right now, it’s not even a possibility that she entertains. And that's OK.)
