Cameron - First Junior Cotillion Dance

Cameron had to leave Ashton's birthday party early - because he is growing up. Last night he went to his first Junior Cotillion Dance. Junior Cotillion teaches ballroom dance, line dance and social etiquette.

Luckily, before the dance, a parent of one of the other boys going from Cameron's school called to arrange a car pool for the boys. This way - 6 boys rode to the dance together, and then went out to dinner afterwards.

At the dance last night, Cameron learned the Fox Trot, the Freeze and the Bunny Hop. He will continue with this over the next 4 years (thru 9th grade) - at which point he may be able to join Dancing with the Stars (just kidding). However, he will be able to dance with his bride on his wedding day - and know how to eat with manners. As well as things like opening doors for women, pulling out chairs, introductions, etc. Even though he was very leary to begin with, I think he already realizes that it isn't so bad. Especially since they went to dinner afterward!! This is so funny - they went to Shogun - which if you don't know what that is, it is a Japanese Hibachi restaurant - where they cook in front of you. Cameron loves this place. However - he normally orders Salmon. Last night, when he was with the group, he took $40 with him.

The parent that was with him told me he ordered steak and lobster, and said "If you wanna live big, you gotta spend BIG". By the time he paid the tip, he was out of money.

When he came in, he said "if my mom wants to make me fancy, it is going to cost her", as I provided the $40!!

Oh well - I am so glad that he had a good time, I don't care if he spends $40 every dance night!!

Here he is in his suit. Hopefully I will have some additional pictures for this post later this week!!
