It's Peter's 16th birthday this morning! He celebrated it at midnight as he and I were driving home from the school's Year 11 & 12 "Formal" (think "prom"). We bought Peter a new suit so he could attend the formal in style. He and his "mates without dates" had spots reserved together at a table at the formal. I attended as all the Year 12 teachers were expected to be there. As the tradition has been, it was hosted at the very fancy Fremantle Yacht Club.
Though we have all boys and thus won't ever have the hassle of prepping a girl for prom (they go all out with the dresses and hair, etc. here), Lanette was glad to be asked this week to alter the dress for one of the girls attending the formal.
