For All the Grandmas....

mckenna prom2


2 of 8 and I headed to DFW this past weekend for a rite of passage...

Spring Formal.

Did you know that every time a homeschooler gets invited to prom, an angel gets its wings?

Or something like that...

Anyway....

2 of 8 was invited to Spring Formal by a great young man. We've known him since he was a pup.

It was fun to snap some pics and then start sending them out all through social media. We were texting and Facebooking photos across the internet realm before 2 of 8 and The Date even got to the prom venue downtown.

But...

We've got four grandmas (and four grandpas) who are itching to see those pictures. And there is a wide variance in their social media access.

My mother-in-law, who will tell you she is tech-challenged, actually heads the pack with a Facebook account and a phone that she can receive texts and pictures on. Wow, MiMi C! You're a rockstar! She got to see a bunch of the pictures that night, due to her social media savy-ness. MiMi F is also pretty savy, sporting an iPhone and texting up a storm. We texted pictures to her as well. My mom is not so comfortable with the texting stuff~~but she reads my blog and keeps up with the daily news. So this will be her first peek at the prom pics. And hopefully we can get the other grandma, Grandmom B, online and let her see these grand kids all fussied up in their formal wear.

There was the Corsage Bestowing...

2 of 8 made music paper flowers for The Date's boutonniere~~I thought it turned out tres cool (that's French for 'neato').

We'll have some more professional pics coming in over the next few days...but for now, here's a teaser. We call this 'Prom Wear Magazine Cover...'

Okay Grandmas, there you go for now. We'll get some more Spring Formal Photodocumentation soon.

Oh. Wait. There's one more really important pic. For which I will probably get pinched...

But I'm throwing this next one in there just because....I love a good creeper photo.
