My daughter is a bad-ass.

My kid's school carnival consists of people getting arrested, and kids beating the shit out of cars with bats. True story.



Oh, Texas. Never change.

    i know of high schools in Nebraska and Georgia that do this -- though the dress code is not nearly as awesome.

    I have been in TX for almost 14 yrs, and have never heard of this. WhyTFNot?! I want to do this now. But only if I can wear vintage evening attire while doing it. (I'm thinking it would make a great party game for a divorce party too, especially in Texas.) *Love* this photo. :)

    My kids carnival is coming up, I think I should suggest this as a fund raiser to the PTA...they will cheer my name after they realize the total awesomeness of this idea. The whole valley will want to come to "my fund raiser" from then on.

    Yes, we used to do both of those as fundraisers in Iowa when I was younger.

    I'm a recent implant in Texas, and my daughters school carnival was very run-of-the-mill. I feel like I've been ripped off.

    That is the most awesome picture a child can have to look back on it their older years.

    We did it in Iowa too. The beating of the cars.

    I remember doing this in elementary school in Indiana. Not every year; maybe just one, in fact. I have no pictures from the event, but I guarantee I did not look as epic as Hailey.

    We once had a mobster themed school carnival in Nebraska and yes beating up cars was involved. It was weird seeing kids dressed as mo men and girls as flappers carrying all these realistic looking guns and bats and beating cars and stuff. ahh the 80's. the cops didn't seem to care about the fake guns as much.
