Fast forward to this past weekend. We found out on the first day of school that Bethany had been selected to be the freshman princess for homecoming this year. Our school has a senior high queen, a senior high princess, and a freshman princess.

Her Daddy, whose eyes filled with tears at his first sight of her in her dress, proudly escorted her.
The girls are allowed to have more than one escort, and she asked her two grandpas if they would like the honor. Of course, they did!
There were far fewer tears this year, even though our family picture only contains three members...
