My two oldest girls went to their high school prom tonight. Juniors and Seniors were at the same location. A lake resort about 40 minutes from our home.

It’s hard to get my head around the fact that they are getting so old. At the same time though, it does feel right, like it’s time to start marking these milestones. Don’t get me wrong, I love them. But I am also ready for them to start being adults and making moves towards their futures. These same two are learning to drive and getting cars and all the cool fun stuff involved in becoming an adult. One is enrolling in Jr. College and the other is going to Cal State East Bay after graduation. I can’t wait to see what they become!

Wow, prom. I am very thankful that both of my older girls are not boy crazy, at least not yet. The Prom was all about their friends and having a good time. Some of their friends have boyfriends and some don’t. I think COVID messed with that whole thing a bit, I hope things get back on track soon.

I am really glad that they had a wonderful time. In order to make it work, I drove most of the day. A trip to the Bay Area and back, then running errands, then taking them to the event and then picking them up at 11PM. Tomorrow it’s another round trip to the Bay Area. My wife was with 5 of the kids at Morro Bay this weekend, enjoying some cooler weather and the ocean. It will be good to reunite tomorrow night and watch some Downton Abbey until we pass out.
