First Girl/Boy Party

Yesterday McKenzie graduated from 8th grade-no more junior high. High school here we come. Oh My Goodness! I think I am more nervous about this adventure than she is. Well, maybe not. I do not have anxiety. She does.

Last night one of the girls in her class had a graduation party and she was invited. I was thrilled for her but also a little skeptic. I could not figure out how or why she got invited because she really has no friends at school. At least she does not do anything with anybody outside of school. But I guess she is somewhat socializing at school or she wouldn't have been invited. She was nervous and so was I. I was worried she would say or do something that the kids would make fun of her for. I was also worried that they may have invited her just to be mean to her. You know those movies where they invite the unpopular kids and pull pranks on them. All kinds of things went through my head. Of course I did not verbalize any of this to Kenzie. She was nervous enough and even had a hard time deciding on whether she wanted to go or not. I did tell her she could call me at any time and ask me to come get her. In the end she did go and everything went well apparently. She even said she thought one of the boys was flirting with her. I am not sure if I am ready for this. And is she?
