What was up with those beds?!? I skipped the proms too. Didn't get the idea of them, or want to spend all that money pretending to have a good time. Not having had a strong foundation myself, it can be very blurry trying to guess at what I'm doing as a parent, but it does seem to be working for the most part. I'll hold onto Wesley-ish hopes!

Oh, goodness, I will hope for strength (& strength for those who live with me!)…Always so happy to have you come by here!
I know!!! And some of the group did actually go do it! I can't even imagine how you get to the place to say yes to that?!? I'll tell you more when we get together….hopefully, soon!
Ha! I suppose this is part of the circle of life!

Last week Blue announced he'd been invited to the prom by a senior ("just a friend!"). He continued, "We'll go have dinner with a group at someone's house, then go to the prom, and then a bunch of us will rent a couple of hotel rooms for the night…" I... Continue reading

I thought of you and T yesterday…wondered how you were faring through this all…I miss third grade.

DON'T TELL ME THAT!!! Actually, maybe it's reassuring, because you turned out swell. He's really a great kid, pretty straight laced, but we're not sure about a few of the friends… it's prom night tonight…
