One of Homewood's Girl Scout troops hosts a daddy-daughter dance each year, and since this is Bennett's first year being a scout, she had her inaugural dance date. We decided to make this a special night for her, so Bennett and I went shopping for a new dress. She selected several to try on, and ultimately chose a turquoise and white dress that looked beautiful on her (especially with her blue eyes).
After school on Friday, she came home and rested up for her big night. Then she showered so I could do her hair and make-up. We started the process by painting her nails a pretty shade of gray-blue, then I put some mascara and lip gloss on her, and did her hair. When she was finally dressed, Steve presented her with a pretty white wrist corsage. Of course, he had to have a matching boutonniere.
