Tonight was Diva’s big night. She was so excited to finally attend her Grade 8 graduation.
It’s a lot bigger deal now than it was when I was leaving elementary school. The ceremony is held in a banquet hall, one usually reserved for weddings. The principal told me that for 25% of the students that enter high school, Grade 8 grad is the only graduation they will ever attend. Scary statistics.
This year was a lot less traumatizing than last year. I’m not sure if it was this year’s style or I was just better prepared. The dresses were mostly age appropriate. The shoes … those 13/14 year olds have some serious shoe game.
Nice huh? I still don’t think that they are appropriate for children but they are very pretty.
Before I forget, here’s the dress Diva wore. She paired it with gold accessories; bangles, flats, necklace and big belt. She looked very beautiful and like a
big girl little lady.
