The last two days have been crazy town! Lots of busy running around. It was so fun watching Ethan do this Homecoming thing though!
Kiri and Ethan aren’t just homecoming dates, but awesome friends too! She is the sweetest. She even let me do her hair and makeup, which was a blast for me, and she got to feel pampered. When Ethan showed up to pick her up, I snagged these pics from her porch with my iphone. I missed the other pics, so I was grateful for what I had. They had the best time, which melted my heart to see the kids making a beautiful memory.
Kiri was the perfect date for homecoming. Yay for sweet, strong girls and gentleman escorts! Always makes for a wonderful time. 🙂
Today Ethan and I had so much fun together while he asked Kiri to Homecoming! He is finally enjoying some of the benefits of being sixteen…woot woot! I am looking forward to watching him enjoy the dating life, and boy is he off to an incredible start. I had such a proud parent moment when we went to Kiri’s house and talked with her mom LiLing. She was surprised at the amount of effort he was going to for her daughter. She asked, “Do you go to this much work every time?” Ethan was so quick to say, ” Yeah. It’s important to make girls feel special, and that takes some effort on the guy’s part.” In my mind I was like….”YES!”
And so the student becomes the teacher, lol!
Dear Ethan –
My sweet boy, real men make effort, baby! Don’t ever forget or lose that! ALWAYS make being thoughtful a part of your growth strategy. It will pay dividends for the rest of your life. Anyway, today was awesome. It was a great date with mom (while getting you a date to homecoming, lol!) It was fun taking pics and running around like crazy with you while we planned and plotted. Always keep that incredible heart.
