Right now, Zane is on his first date.
He and his friend Bethany are attending the Mormon Prom together.
I had never even heard of a Mormon Prom until we moved here. For many of the LDS youth, it is the only Prom they will go to, so it is the real deal. It's a multi stake event and they go all out, but they discourage the youth from making it the expensive, day long event that has been popular as long as I can remember.
It's a pretty huge deal for the kids here and it was fun to see all of our youth dressed to the nines, looking very fancy and grown up, but still giggling and joking like little kids.
Because Zane is a boy, he won't be coming home and sitting on the edge of my bed, telling me about his fairytale night, but that's okay. It was great to just get to be the mom to this kid that I am so proud of and who looked so handsome in his new suit.
