The end of Taylor's 8th grade year marked the beginning of many firsts for me and Scott. Taylor's school hosts a semi-formal each year and Taylor and I did our very first dress shopping. We went with my sister and the 3 of us all agreed on a dress. I was even more excited when I found out it was 50% off!!!
Taylor came home from school on Friday and we began getting her ready! Taylor is an on-line junkie and googled "How to get ready for a formal" It had all instructions starting with showering, shaving legs, applying lotion etc....... It was actually pretty cute! We then sat and curled her hair, applied make-up and painted finger and toenails.
When we went outside and I was watching her pose for the pictures it made me realize that my little girl is all grown up. We won't even mention the fact that she is now taller than me! It was a lot of fun helping her get ready for her very first dance. I'm sure it won't be the last either. But for now, I was excited to be with her and see her off to end her time at the Junior High and watch her get ready for her High School years.
