#3 had a school dance last night.
It was her and her friend's first big event since starting high school.
Her school does not have dances, but
it does allow a parent social committee to sponsor them occasionally.
A bunch of ninth grade girls can definitely make things like this a big tadoo.
We offered our house as the meeting spot for everyone so that all of
us moms could take 1,000 pictures each.
The boys were not so sure what all the fuss was about.
The girls, well, they were all into it.
It took a while to get this bow tie tied,
they YouTubed it!
#3 and some of the girls on the school soccer team
Their coach let them leave practice an hour early so that they could get ready....
of course it was after
they ran eight laps around the field
and then some wind sprints.
They clean up real nice!
The crowd kept getting bigger and bigger...
#1 and #2 even showed up.
They were not going to miss seeing everyone all dressed up.
They were so excited for #3.
the two older ones made it back from their Bahamas trip.
As her luck would have it, Brooke (#2) celebrated her 21st birthday while on
spring break and then again with us once she was home.
I have been reminded that I haven't done a birthday post yet.
I will in a few days!)
After the dance we had the group back to our house for a bonfire.
We ordered pizza and had s'mores fixins set up for them when they got back.
Parents came and picked up around 12:30 and then even though we were really
tired, The Hubs and I sat out by the fire for a while as it burned down.
It was a late night for us, but we loved it.
It was so good to see them all have so much fun.
We did this for #1 and #2 a lot while they were in middle school and high school,
it was nice for #3 to have a turn!
