Those Osborn Dads Can Dance
April brings with it more than showers, just ask the girls at Osborn Elementary School.
On April 5, 120 of them spent quality time with their fathers at the Osborn’s annual Daddy Daughter Sweetheart Dance.
The DJ had everyone on the dance floor.
And at evening’s end, each girl received a rose and heart-shaped chocolate.
