Rite of passage

This afternoon our own Emma Grace enjoyed a major rite of passage being nearly twelve brings. She and a friend headed to the movies. They bought their tickets, headed to a couple of shops and bought a few things with their allowance money. They ate a piece of pizza a Purees on Lake Street and enjoyed a scoop of ice cream at Ben and Jerry's before heading back to the theater for the 4:30 showing of Twilight...a pretty grown-up movie if you ask me. Emma bumped into a bunch of her fellow dancers (8th graders) at the show and she and her friend sat with them during the movie. Emma returned home at 7pm with a brand new book she bought for Finn with her own money. Soo...what about supervision for this outing? Nope...there was transportation, but no supervision. Plenty of rules and boundaries were set for this outing, but Emma and her friend were completely on their own! An exciting first for our young lady. She had a marvelous time! As her mother I would like to say, "phew!"
