Wordless Wednesday (8th Grade Dance)

My daughter ended up going to the dance with her friends & the once-upon-a-time-blue-haired-boy,
but they're just good friends now...and not 'going together,' which is fine by me.  The longer she waits to 'go' with anyone, the better (as far as I'm concerned). ;)
Last social event before high school.

Pat Hatt said...

Going together, when it meant so much, yet truly meant so little haha

Janine Huldie said...

Oh to be young again and god having thought of that term in so long. I know I will dealing with this twice over in a few short years with my two girls. Thanks for sharing Rosey and Happy Wednesday!! :)

Brandy said...

Awww love it! Great time it looks like! I would much rather have someone be friends anyways.. I am dreading the dating days but thank goodness Kiara and I have had these discussion on the topic of dating already!

Oh yes they can take their time! I've learned that relationships work better when they understand themselves more. Otherwise it ends in heartbreak and confusion.

Aw, she's so beautiful Rosey...and very wise as well! Good job Mom!

Julie Maloney said...

Oh how I miss going to dances. I wish I had a girl so I could see her get dressed up!

Sandee said...

I so remember the going together times in my life. There were quite a few too. Good for me.

She's beautiful by the way.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Susan Zutautas said...

Beautiful pictures Rosey! Your daughter wore such a lovely dress. Blue is my favourite colour!:) Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

oh Rosey, Thanks for liking the lipsticks. Now I just need to wear them and get them to show. challenges, challenges. Thanks for linking up. I love school dances and they kids are more casual in the methods, etc. Which is great!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Cute photos! Love her dress. Good for them in being "just friends"!

Z said...

I think at times every couple needs to be 'just friends'. lots of wishes!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh, cute pictures!

Teresa Kindred said...

Great picture. Wish I had known in eighth grade what I know now. Would have saved me a whole lot of heart ache. Blessings to you and your daughter.

Thanks for linking up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama

Teresha Freckleton-Petite said...

She is a vision of loveliness! It's so much better to go to dances as a group when you are that age...no pressure!

Nichol said...

I remember my 8th grade dance well. So fun!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Awww how cute! At least they are still friends :)

Almost Precious said...

You've a lovely daughter. She will meet many young men in her life before she decides upon her prince charming. It is nice to see a young lady take the time to grow-up, concentrate on her education and to take her time and wait before getting into a relationship. She is indeed very smart.
We are only young once, and that time is so short. When she is all grown up she will never regret that she focused on the things that were truly important.

Joyce Lansky said...

I remember my eighth grade dance. After I asked the boy I liked to dance with me, he yelled, "F%$# YOU!" I didn't want to do that! I just wanted to dance.

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Awww they look so cute. So "going together" is still the phrase or is that you? The first time a boy asked to go with me I was in the 6th grade and I said, "Go where?" I was fresh out of private school in didn't know slang one bit if you can call that slang.

Melissa @ My Recent Favorite Books said...

I remember..the "going together" phrase, - how sweet! =)
Love your photos!

Leovi said...

Very beautiful with that pretty blue dress!

Jennifer @ Mom Spotted said...

And so it begins.... Johnny already has a girlfriend but luckily all that means is a status change on Instagram lol

Kristie said...

Such nice pictures and great memories for her and you too I'm sure :-)

Kristi Maloney said...

I remember those days! What fun. Her dress is very nice, I like how they match...even at the middle school level. My son starts middle school in the fall yikes! dances! girls! Oh MY!!

mail4rosey said...

No, that's just me. If I'd have said 'dating' that would have been an inaccurate term. ;) Glad to see so many people 'get' what 'going together' means. We're in this old school thing together. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL, that's all it means for some grown ups too. :)

Christy Maurer said...

How cute they are! I remember those days :) My son is going to be a sophomore and my daughter is graduating Saturday! Time does fly!!!

My Journey With Candida said...

Whew!! Not going together is a good thing. She has years to think about that.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I think I might have liked to see the blue hair - maybe if he still had it your daughter would still be going out with him ;-) No, seriously - I'm glad she had a good time with her friends. There is plenty of time for boyfriends much much later...

Talya Tate Boerner said...

How sweet. And yes, the longer she is 'single' the better:)) Thanks for linking up with me! Come back next Wednesday:))

~ Noelle said...

Masshole Mommy said...

Awww, at least the blue haired boy is still around. I know she really liked him, so I'm glad they could stay friends.

John DeBellis said...

So much drama in those years

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Nothing ever seems easy at that age

Pride In Photos said...

You are living the best years of your life right now...believe it or not. I miss it, now I am an empty nester.

Paula Miller said...

Love the curly blonde hair! Pretty girl and pretty dress :))

Sonya M. Jones said...

LOL @going together! Haven't heard that term used for a while. Your daughter is a cutie! I totally feel you on dating though. I'm really not ready for it or the gray hairs that come with it. :P

Aleksandra Nearing said...

Yes, yes, yes, the longer she waits the better. I hope they had a wonderful time!

Michele P. said...
