Her First Prom



 Prom is like dress-up for big girls. Make up, hair, nails, and a beautiful dress. 




 










 
Someday she's going to be in a wedding dress and he's going to be crying his eyes out. I love that man and his little girl.






I liked the prom and other formals when I was in high school. I like the way our homeschool group does it even better. Dates are so optional. Mostly only the juniors and seniors go with dates. We are not freaky about dating; but we did want our girl to have at least one year without a date, just to have fun with her friends without feeling all weird and awkward with a boy.

Her first prom was all about anticipation and pretty things. I liked that. And I love her. I wish for her many, many magical evenings in her future, full of anticipation and pretty things.

    1. You know what she wants more than anything, Robin? An orange VW bug. Seriously. I told her she'll need to boycott prom her Jr. year and go to the drive-in if she wants an orange bug!

  2. This is the 2nd year my kids have gone to prom. They go together and with a group of friends and have a great time. I love that our homeschool group doesn't push dates either. My husband and I were two of the chaperones and prom just seemed like a more relaxed atmosphere when dating was pretty much removed from the equation.

  4. Hopping over from UBP. Beautiful pics. My son would not take a date to prom b/c he said dates were for a girl you want to marry. I guess we instilled that in him. We had to strongly encourage him to take a date to the senior prom. That was the only time he asked a date in high school. He had as much fun going single as with a date.

    And, yes your hubby will be emotional when she wears a wedding dress. We did that 2 yrs ago with my oldest. So much fun, but also emotional. Makes me cry right now.

    Stop by when you get a chance
