Finally Got to the Prom

This post is overdue, but I wanted to capture my memories of this year's TEACH formal. It was very special this year because Rebecca was honored as a senior and because it was the first time for Nathan to attend (as his sister's date - how sweet!):

This was also the first time that both Terry and I attended the event (in the past he went as Rebecca's escort and I stayed home) - which means for the first time in my life - I had a date to the prom!

No, I'm not bitter that I never got asked to the prom in high school, but let's just say it was on my bucket list.

One of the fun things about homeschooling is that parents are welcome at the prom and get to join in the fun. Our friends, Sally and Mark, decided to have some extra fun with the "1920's Red Carpet" theme:

And here we are getting down to some music from our era. I think it was "Play that Funky Music":

Several people asked me if it was strange to see Rebecca all grown up. You know, it really wasn't. She's seemed grown up for a long time. I'm sorta used to it - though I thought she was beautiful in the dress she made herself!

It was Nathan that really caused me to pause a little. He looked so tall and grown up. And he could dance!

I think my proudest moment was the mother-son dance. Nathan came over and asked me to dance. I wasn't sure if I knew what I was doing (I'm better at funky-music dancing than ballroom dancing), and I asked him if he did. He said "Just give me a second to listen to the music . . . yea, I can rhumba to this . . . I'll start on my left foot . . ." and he proceeded to lead me perfectly:

So, it's never too late to go to the prom.
