157/365 A little fun is always good

Every class of Junior Miss participants mingles differently. Some tend to separate into smaller groups, some contain contestants who don't get along (not surprising for high school girls, right?), and others mesh well as a group and have a lot of fun together.

The last description best fits this year's class. I was really pleased to see how well they got along. They didn't break out into cliquish segments, but stayed as a cohesive, friendly group of six all week.

Their relatively small size -- just six girls -- is certainly part of the reason, but it also says something about the girls.

It made teaching and directing them a challenge, because I had to mandate run-throughs with no chatting on stage every so often, but more than anything, I was happy to get to know a fun, friendly group.

When they're having fun, those of us running the program are having fun, too.
