Gracie attended her school's "social" tonight - which, yes, they called the "Prom".
It was a grand event which Gracie has been anxiously awaiting for over a month. We had a special shopping trip to find a dress and some shoes earlier this week, and after non-stop asking "Is today my prom" for the last three days... it was finally here.
As you might imagine, it was an energetic atmosphere with lots of chaos as 100 some odd 5 year olds were getting jiggy with it while all of the parents stood and watched behind their digital camcorders (myself included). HA!
At the end of the night, when we had endured all the Hannah Montana we could stand, the DJ gave us a break and indulged the grown up crowd by playing the electric slide... Gracie was very impressed and wanted to know how everyone knew that dance already and where did they learn it?? HA!
