Emily headed out last night
on a very grown-up function
- a cruise on Sydney Harbour
with her new (senior high school) youth group.
The theme was
"formal with a touch of military"
so this khaki dress was perfect.
Her first pair of heels
and first pair of new earrings
and a necklace we made
completed the outfit.
I watched her walk bravely alone
through the crowds of older kids in dresses and tuxedos
to find the one or two girls she knew.
A hard thing to do
when you have only been to
youth group once!
Proud of you, Em.
