Tonight McKenlee and I went to see Andy Grammer in concert. It was a fantastic evening. We went with McKenlee's English teacher and her daughter. McKenlee was in class one day and her teacher Mrs. O'Connell was talking about how her daughter was a huge fan and they both bought tickets for the concert without realizing the other had done so also. So needless to say they had two extra tixs. McKenlee loves Andy Grammer so she asked if we could buy the extra two tickets and go with them. I love any opportunity to have a little one on one with each of my girls so I said absolutely. It was a really neat concert because the venue was so small. I have never been to a concert in that type of setting. I loved it. Mrs. O'Connell graciously gave up her ticket which was much closer to the stage and also her pass for the meet and greet after the show to McKenlee. McKenlee was beyond excited and we had such a good time. Mrs. O'Connell and I forgot we were Moms and danced and sang just like we were groupies. The best part of course was the meet and greet afterwards when McKenlee got to have her picture taken with Andy Grammer. You can tell by the look on her face she was in heaven. I must say Andy Grammer was fabulous with his fans and I just thought he was adorable. I jokingly posted on my FB page next to the picture "Here is McKenlee with my future son in law" LOL

So in May Natalie had her Junior Prom with her then boyfriend Chris. (they have since broken up) McKenlee went to dinner with Natalie and Chris and their friends and took pictures for me. I think they turned out beautiful. School is out now and the girls are keeping busy, Natalie is doing a summer course at our local college. I love the option of doing college classes while you are still in high school. When students take the classes while still in high school it is completely free. LOVE THIS... I sure wish we would of taken advantage of this when Sydnee was in high school but this is a relatively new option for students and when Syd was in high school they really pushed the whole AP thing. Now this seems to be the more popular route because you are guaranteed college credit, and as long as you pass the class it is not dependent on an exam at the end. McKenlee is doing summer swim team and Junior Guard in hopes of getting a job guarding once she turns 16. Natalie is looking for a part time job. We bought her a car back in May and we've told her we would like her to take over the car payment as soon as she can. We are not good used car buyers (the Jetta has been a nightmare) and basically I just wanted her in a safe, reliable car. So we traded her Jetta in for a 2014 Dodge Avenger. She is thrilled and I am thankful I don't have to worry about her being stranded. Here are some pictures from Natalie's prom.
