Wow! Barnmom, your little Alice has grown up hasn't she! You must be so proud of her. She is just a beautiful young lady. I haven't seen a picture of her in a long time. I'm glad she does scrape off the mud occasionally. BTW - what was the occasion?

Thank you. She is smart and sweet (mostly) too. Has a bad case of eighth-grader-itis. But she will be humbled come September when she is a HS freshman!

She certainly has grown up but I still see some little girl in her. I like her outfit, not too grown up but grown up, just enough to be special. She looks very poised, any modeling aspirations?

Where'd those long legs come from? She's so grown up. I only know how much older I am by seeing other people's kids!

Wow, Eileen, she HAS grown up, hasn't she? Last I remember, she was a little blonde girl on a pony, now she's a beautiful young lady.

Just goes to show you what good a little barn mud will do for a girl!

Alice looks deceptively tall because she is so slim. She is only about 5'-3". I toyed with the notion of modeling when she was little, 4-6, but she had no interest! And I'm no stage mom.

She chose all her clothes on her own, including the pearls and clutch. I thought the shoes seemed a little "matronly" but they were what she wanted.

I think the shoes work perfectly. They don't look matronly to me, but they do add an air of sophistication.

Oh Wow Eileen, Alice was always cute but now she has turned into a real beauty. I love her sense of style. Guess she takes after her mom.

She is gorgeous and so poised, it's hard to believe she's 13. Did she have a good time at the dance?

The dance was a fun time, she danced a lot with her girlfriends and with a few boys. She has a nice little group of good friends that she does everything with. There are five of them, all nice girls, who have been a unit since 6th grade.

Tomorrow is her graduation ceremony. She tried to pout a bit and hoped I might spring for another dress for graduation (to be covered with a gown!). Mmmm, NO! This one will likely not ever get another wearing after tomorrow as it is!

Thank you for all your kind words. She is a sweet, smart child. I lucked out!
