    I had a great grandfather that was a horrid alcoholic and it left a bad taste for it for my whole extended family.
    However, after all this stuff i am wondering if the occasional drink would have helped prevent!

    Ha, yes - prom is becoming more of an event with each year/generation. I think they have the categories right but the split is probably different. Girls dresses, boy tux, prom ticket ($125/person at our school), flowers, hair, etc will definitely approach $750-$1K.

    What's better is the kids have what they call senior week where they all rent beach houses in Ocean City Maryland. $Thousands but fortunately split between 8+ guys/girls. Not sure you can put a price on that though - one week with your buddies before you head off to college. Priceless as long as everyone has a good head on their shoulders.

    There was a good documentary about that, few years back. It was titled "American Pie 2".

    At U2 with my 15yo daughter. I've always loved U2, but believe it or not, she's the one that pushed me to go. So it's father daughter day at the Rose Bowl. IMG_0193.JPG

    It was a big weekend at my house. Eldest Daugher (a.k.a. "Thing One") is now an Adult in the Catholic Church.

    [​IMG]

    Yup. Katie was confirmed Friday night. The service lasted 2 1/2 hours. The "long slog" was the fact that the Archbishop spent several un-rushed minutes with each of the 40 candidates. In spite of what it did to the length of the service, I appreciate it. He's a real down-to-earth guy and related really well to the kids. Hopefully they carry the Light of Christ that he showed them forward with them in life.


    Saturday was Katie's Prom. At her school, you attend "your" prom during your Junior Year. Tell me I'm not in trouble.
    [​IMG]

    Luckily, the boy she asked to prom is a younger friend and not a love interest. The kid is a Sophomore but should actually be in 8th grade. He's super-advanced academically.

    Photos were funny as heck because he was afraid to touch her. I said "Normally, I wouldn't encourage you but you can at least put your arm around her for pictures."

    [​IMG]
    So I didn't feel like I had a whole lot to worry about. (They went with 2 other couples. The pictures were taken at one of the girl's homes. It was funny because her ex-military Dad made sure to leave his M&P and box of ammo out where his daughter's boyfriend would be sure to see it.)

    She had a great time and was home by midnight. This one has a good head on her shoulders, I just hope she keeps it.

    Awesomeness! Before you finished your post i was already thinking that she's a pretty girl with a good head on her shoulders! I am sure the upbringing had a little to do with it! I can only hope and pray the same of my daughter but she's only 5 yet and has her mom's sass, lol!smart as any 5 year old i have met yet though especially street smarts. She is the leader of the pack here even with her older brother of 7!
    Of course, i have a long ways before dating so maybe i have less than you to worry about!

    Regarding Prom costs; I can only tell you our wedding didn't cost anywhere there that much. Now don't ask me what our daughter's wedding cost as my wife never told me and I did not really want to know.[flag]

    @ Brad Paisley last night.

    I don't listen to country music. But what you can't see in my photo is the group of active duty service members on stage with him. Or the point where he stops the show, pulls a kid out of the front row up on stage, and proceeds to autograph and hand over his guitar. Or all the military appreciation in the videos behind him on the big screen. Dude is from my hometown, and this is the 3rd time I've seen him. Not only is he a badass guitar player, but a quality specimen of a human being, a proud military supporter, a class act, and one helluva selfless performer. I don't listen to country music, but I will go see his show every time he's in town.
