A memorable Lakota East High School party 9 years ago #TBT

Posted By on May 26, 2016

Katie and TaylorLooking back on this #ThrowbackThursday, we must have been nuts!

Brenda and I never really hesitated to have parties at the house until text messaging, social networking, the ubiquitous cellphone and DRIVING became a way for invitees to broadcast what they were doing and where they were at. Although the end of school Memorial Day Taylor (and Katie) Birthday Bash started out semi-controlled (as were other parties over the years when they were younger), by evening the streets were full of parked cars and the crowd of kids grew. Thankfully they were a respectful bunch and for the most part responsible … but these were high school age kids.

Now that 9 years have passed, we can smile without remembering that it did get a bit out of control. One line from someone to Taylor stood out … "how did you find out about this party?" Taylor’s reply, "it’s my birthday party and I live here!" Parents beware.

  • smiling at this because that last paragraph, had some similar events at our recent grad party. I had a teen ask me who I was very late at night. Had to force wrapping things up way after my bedtime.

    • Any your “parent of high schoolers” life is in its prime. A few more to get thru. I’ll be watching for your gray hair!
