I didn't even attend my senior prom. And only two of my four have gone to prom. Firstborn wasn't dating anyone, was the introverted type, and rather anti-establishment. Scout refused to even consider going, though he had a wide circle of friends and I think would have had a great time. But waaay back in 2010, The Girl went - seemingly unusual for her, too, as she was heavy into sports and working part-time, and as far as I know, the one and only date she ever had with that particular football player.
And she did look really lovely!
Hubby had about 15 minutes to take a few shots before her date arrived and whisked her away. So if you blinked, you missed it, and I did, since I was at work! I did however, get to take her shopping for the dress, which we both loved. Thank goodness he got a few shots taken.
I would love to have great pictures to share all the time, but that's not my reality...
Flash forward 7 years to her littlest brother going to prom. I had literally ONE minute to take a pic before he and a friend headed off to pick up the girls. So of course, I took a terrible photo! My hope is that when they took group shots, they got better ones, and I can talk him into sending me some. He had the perfect tux for him - navy blue, with a navy and black paisley tie and navy sateen vest. Quite the looker, blurry photo notwithstanding!
Seems like every day there is a new milestone here - last this, last that.
But also many firsts to look forward to as well...
