I can't believe how much time flies. Both of our children are now in high school and it's a joy to see them both get excited and dressed up.
This year's homecoming at my children's school was a little different than the past few years. Instead of having the dance at an out of school facility, it was held at the school's gymnasium. Students have their choices to go wherever they choose for dinner. My son's date and his friends went to William's Country Club and my daughter's date and their friends went to Ditka's.
EJ asked his close friend Marissa, they went to school together at St. Joseph since kindergarten although they go on different schools in high school. Her family is a close family friend of ours which makes us very happy that they went to the dance together.
She looked stunning and I think they look great together. I love where his class went for dinner because the view there is gorgeous. Too bad it was raining when they were about to take pictures so they didn't get to have more photos taken outside. I was still very weak so I let my husband be in charged of the taking photos. I forgot to tell my son to removed the plastic of the bouquet before he gave it to Marissa. Oh well, lesson learned for my son not to forget about it next time.
The kids said that it was a lot of fun. My daughter even said that, it was way better than the previous years.
