Anna is spending the week with her teens. Always so lovely!
Her daughter Kristiina is 17 now and these are exciting times. She’s in the second year of upper secondary school, and her Vanhojentanssit is coming up.
Vanhojentanssit, that is, the Ball of The New Seniors, is a beautiful formal prom held in Finnish high schools to celebrate the passage of becoming the lukio seniors, the day after the third-year students stop attending to start studying for their matriculation exams in February.
They’re going to be fetching Kristiina’s long dress on Thursday. That’s something really nice to look forward to. Anna and Krissy are going to have coffee somewhere and chat from the joy of their hearts and amazing friendship.
Aww. Her little girl is all grown up now.
Oh, how the years fly!
Yes, this week Anna is spending quality time with her teens, but they’re teenagers. They don’t need her or even want to spend all their free time with her. An hour or two per evening seems to be more than enough for them these days.
There really is a time for everything under the sun…
Not going out on dates this week, but there’s a lot of time for chatting online. And dates set up for next week. Yay!
Thank God for hobbies and friends.
