Cotillion cutie

Keaton has been participating in the 6th grade cotillion program. Each week for five weeks they've met at the school to learn all types of dances and formal etiquette. Last night was the grand finale and Miss Keaton (11) who originally balked at the whole idea, found a real enjoyment in the dancing and a new found love of the dressing up.

Looking much older than 11.





















The only decent picture I got of her dancing with a boy (shhh!)





















Having such a good time.





















Even doing a little Macarena.





















She danced the night away and had a wonderful time with friends.















Clearly not our little girl anymore.

(Oh, and check out her brothers below.)

Keaton looks so grown up!! I remember doing Cotillion at that age, I wasn't a fan of all the practices but the end was fun.

WOW! She has really grown up! It seems hard to believe that 2 years have passed since I first met her in my class! She has become a very beautiful young lady and I am so proud to have been her teacher! She has a bright personality and always brought a smile to my heart!
I am proud of you Keaton!

I have to agree with Sutton. As soon as I saw these pics I realized she looks more and more like Sutton...just darker features!

What a wonderful education for the children! I wish our school offered something like that.

Your daughter is lovely and I'm glad she had such a great time.
