Last weekend was homecoming for my oldest two children. Since Meghan is now a Senior, and her brother David a Freshman, they were able to attend it together. It was my daughter’s first dance and my son’s too. Meghan made it special by wearing the same dress I wore to my Senior homecoming dance in 1985.
Her idea, not mine.
For all of my wonderful relatives who have left phone messages, text messages and emails…HERE ARE THE PICTURES…and I am having Paul draw up the restraining order!
To share a quick story with you all, Meghan had called me frantic on the Monday before her big night when she realized the kids had waited too long to get dinner reservations. “Mom, remember that idea you had about having a few couples for dinner before the dance?” “Mmmm hmmmm…” I nervously replied. “Well, are you still up for that?”
A few couples for dinner = nineteen Seniors, eight adults and ten younger children.
We all had a great time. The extra blessing was that Meg’s date was Aaron, my dear friend Kim’s son. Meghan and Aaron have known each other from church since they were eight years old. They are good friends and had a great time together.
David had a great time too. And no, he didn’t take a date. Call me old fashioned but a 9th grader is way too young to even think about taking a date to a dance!
