My kids are growing up.They're not little, cuddly ones anymore. They're needing much less these days. All good things, I know, but sometimes, it just doesn't seem right.
The last bit of 2010 had two big moments for the kids.
Darian had his Year 10 Formal. Over here, Year 10 is a big year that ends with a big test. It used to be the end of formal schooling for those who wanted to go into a technical trade. (now things have changed a bit) So, amidst studying and before the big tests, Darian had a formal. He went stag w/ some friends. I only got pics before he left.

The finish of primary school is celebrated with a Year 6 Farewell. This is a less-formal formal, but still a big celebration that includes a 'bush dance'. Brenna, as School Captain, spoke at the Farewell this year.

(wish I would have had B pose w/ D his his fancy clothes)
the parents getting in on the action.
(again, should have done this w/ D, but he likely would have just made faces)
I wish I could have been there during both events to take pics and share the memories, but I guess that's slowly being worked out of my job description.
