I am a week late posting this, but last Friday evening, my daughter got to attend her first Homeschool Formal. She was rockin’ a Kay Unger ‘original’, courtesy of my mom’s amazing boss, Michelle, who found it on sale for $10.00!! (These dresses start at $400 and go up. . . ) She got together with several of her friends, and they rented a limousine to take them to the dance, which was held downtown at the Sheraton Hotel. They all looked amazing, and very classy. I was so proud of all of them! Yeah. . . so much for homeschoolers being geeky and having no social lives!!
After watching them all drive off in the limo, Gaylon and I went out for dinner and to see John Cusack’s new movie, “The Raven”. I had heard that it was like “Seven”, so I was a little concerned, but it turned out to be far more benign than that movie, and pretty enjoyable, although I think they could have done a bit more with it. John Cusack, however, is always worth watching.
The limo picked the kids up at Midnight, and brought them to meet us (and the other parents) at Kerbey Lane. We parents got our own booth, and all the teens got another, and we had an awesome ‘after party’! We didn’t get home until nearly 3:00 a.m., and it was a truly delightful evening for all of us!
