... to the Leavers' Ball, and on to the next stage in life. I should just say that I do have permission to post this photo of my son on his way to the formal ball that is one of the events in this whole end of an era business.
We hired this outfit - since we're not sure that he's finished growing yet, we're not risking getting a kilt made and then finding it's too short 6 months later. And believe me, there's nothing worse than a kilt that's too short. Although between us my husband and I cover two of the main royal houses of Scotland, our tartans were spurned on this occasion in favour of Ramsay blue tartan. It was exactly the right shade to tone with the dress my son's partner was wearing. I call that gentlemanly.
