Last Saturday, was the girl's choice formal, Co-Ed. Shantel really REALLY wanted to go and we discussed it and said she could go to the dance but not with a date, as she is too young for dating. She bought a solo ticket. I did her hair and her nails, she just stayed home and ate dinner with us, then we took her to the school to meet up with her friends.
At formal dances here, they have a grand march..... right out of a fair tale, like Cinderella. They announce each girl and her escort. Shantel was escorted by the neighbor kid. They march across the stage meeting in the middle and he hands her a flower, takes her arm and they march down the steps.
Of course we had a few pilgrims round here....
Tonight, we had the light parade, cold but fun.
After the light parade we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house. It is time to let Nana know it is OK for her to go home, if it is time.
Scott stepped up next to her, but didn't touch her. She was breathing and sleeping and we're not sure she knew we were there. I think this helps us to let her go, when she is ready.
P.S. Nana was called home today, 11-27-10.
