For the last several weeks we have been preparing and waiting for the Winter Dance. Finally the outfit was ready, the tickets had been purchased and now all we had to do was make it through Saturday. The dance didn’t start until 8:30PM but we managed to keep Sam busy until the arrival of his date.
Since both Bren and Sam have Celiac disease we decided not to do the pre-dance dinner. It gets complicated looking for a convenient restaurant that has GF food. Bren’s parents brought her here for pictures and then I drove them to the dance.Flowers are exchanged…Many pictures are taken…and course we need at least one glamour shot of Bren…and then they’re off!
I dropped them off in the lobby of the school hoping that Sam didn’t lose his money, the tickets or his student ID. I am not allowed to go into the dance to watch and that’s a good thing. The dance is just a small glimpse of the future. I prepare my kids as best I can and then I have to let them go.
