My son’s Senior Prom was this weekend and wow did it bring back memories.  With all the differences, it is really the same.  14 were in the group and they rented a limo which took them to dinner, then to the prom, then back to a friends house for an all night party.  “The group”, my son’s friends that hang around, is such a dynamic group.  They really are stand out young adults.  I love them all.  They are all driven and know who they are, well as much as 17 and 18 year olds can know themselves.

Back in my day, we didn’t hang around in groups or rent limos.  That’s what they do now.  I like it because they seem to all look out for each other.  I wore white to the Prom, my son wore white to the Prom.  He had no idea I had done so. Nice dinner.  The dance wasn’t that fun and the band wasn’t that great.  But the after party was the best.  I echo all those sentiments. 

But most of all, it was a night of memories, either good or bad, and a time to spend with your friends which you might not see for a long time.  One of those memories to file away and remember 30 some odd years later and go “Ohhhhhhhhhh”.
