Ready for Take-Off

Here are the photos from last night's prom. For me, it was not a good thing...conflict-filled and negative. However, she did "let" me take some photos prior to their dinner out...



Today is my son's 16th birthday. We took him to breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast joints, "The Broken Yolk" in downtown Corvallis. Then, as a family (I couldn't believe it!) we played Frisbee at Central Park for about 45 minutes, and headed over to Footwise to buy his birthday gift...his first pair of Birkenstocks!
My daughter, at "almost 18," has been difficult, to say the least. I'm ready for her to launch into the real world...and hopefully struggle her first hardships. Actually, I crave hearing her call me some night, saying, "Mom...I'm down at the police station with my friends. Can you come and pick us up?" The part I'm actually craving is my reply, "Gosh, I wish I could, but I'm pretty busy right now."

Hey! I know that prom date. Or did. Regarding the late night call, I don't believe a bit of it.
