One of our goals for Gabe this school year was for him to attend the prom with his classmates. As a junior, this was his first opportunity to dress up and boogie his heart out on the dance floor. His teacher was on board so all it took was a bit of coaching (including the reminder that girls are not impressed when he calls them "Chica") combined with some serious tailoring at the tuxedo shop ("Sir, he has some very interesting proportions!") and Gabe was all ready for his big night. We dropped him off out in front of the dance where he was met by a classmate and his teacher. After reluctantly allowing us to photograph his magnificence, he strutted into the building ready to wow his adoring public. In the picture above, Jay thinks he is contemplating which dance move he should use to start the night; I think he may be considering how many girls will be mesmerized by his Venezuelan mojo. Either way, we are confident the Fort Defiance High School Prom will never be quite the same!
