First School Dance And Drama Begins

Well, well, Lily had her first school dance yesterday.  It was a Valentine's Day Dance for grades 6 - 8 but, it seemed, mostly the 6th graders showed up. (And that's just fine with me!)  It's amazing the difference those two years can make in behavior and attitude.  In 6th grade their still cute and laughing at everything and having fun together.  What I've seen of 7th and 8th grade are the hormones really kickin' in and kids tend to think they're more mature than they really are and think they can take on adult actions.  I remember, I remember.  Oh the drama!  (I wouldn't go back if you paid me.) 

There are no crushes, no jealousies, not yet.  I have a few precious months before that begins.  However, I am hearing the rumblings of "Best Friends Forever" starting to not be connected at the hip and other girls becoming replacements.  That's tough.  Lily asked me what it was like for me to have two best friends when I was her age and I was honest and said it wasn't easy.  When it comes to a friendship trio eventually someone is going to feel left out.  Here we go with friendship drama!  That's ok.  I'm ready for that one.

Any advice in the friendship arena you care to share? :->

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
