Jacob and his date Cassie had a great time. They wandered and socialized more than they danced. They enjoyed the refreshments, the loud music, and the company of friends. And they mostly managed to avoid Jacob's chaperone mom and her ever-present camera!
I caught them a few times, though! I got someone to take this shot of Jacob and me while he was waiting for Cassie to return from the ladies' room. The rose is for Cassie, of course!
It was an exciting moment when Chanda was crowned Prom Queen. Chanda is the daughter of my friend Charla, and she is also my son Dylan's Big Sister in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. With her is her date, Keegan, who happened to be Dylan's Big Brother before he graduated and went off to college 2 years ago. They are two of Dylan's favorite people.
I'm a little sad that it will be a few years before one of my children attends Prom again. Dylan begins junior high school in August, so it will be 2 years before one of my kids is again a student at the high school where I teach. After 6 years with Sarah and/or Jacob attending my school, I just may be a little bit lonely there!
