Socializing as a 7th grader

Last Friday night Justin had his last 7th grade cotillion dance.  Of the reasons we have had our kids participate in this activity is because of the lessons that are taught.  The lesson this time was given by Devonne Carter on being thankful.  She did a fantastic job with only having 20 minutes.  She talked about writing thank you notes and about being thankful for everything in your life.

The cotillion took place at the Round Barn in Arcadia.  It had been postponed from April 13th due to the possiblilities of storms.  It was so hot inside the barn Friday night, they moved everything outside.

Justin doesn’t know the name of the girl that asked him to dance, but he did know that her locker is right next to his.

    I made all mine go to cotillion also. Some liked it, some did not. But I think there were lots of good things about it. LOL – my middle son went to one at the round barn too, and ended up being questioned by a policeman that night. It was because some other boy threw a canned drink out the window and it is so close to the road. Big controversy in 7th grade!!!

    I was so jealous of my friends who got to be in cotillion. I don’t know why I never was, but I always wanted to be. That looks like a lot of fun!
