I didn't have a 6th grade graduation. I moved in the middle of the year and in CA 6th grade is elementary and in NV, it's junior high so my experience was more traumatic than eventful. I've never even been to a 6th grade graduation though I hear they have it for almost everything in some places including kindergarten which is weird but off topic. Anyway, my 11yo dd is graduating 6th grade next month and needs a dress. I was thinking of going to JcPenney or Debs and spending maybe $30-$50 on a nice summery dress that she can wear more than once plus shoes and whatever but my dd insists that she needs like a prom dress/evening gown and is in love with every dress that is at least $150 not to mention a matching pair of 6 inch heels (like she could walk in them, ha!). She swears that's what everyone else will be wearing. Now of course I hear that a lot, she's the ONLY 11yo girl in the world without an Ipod touch too. What sort of dress did you get or will get for your dd's various graduations?
