“Dancing the Night Away”

As the clock counts down to high school graduation on May 10, we have so many things to take care of!  Finishing up lessons, preparing for the last piano recital, ordering graduation invitations, announcements for those who live too far to attend the ceremony . . . choosing special clothing for Easter Sunday, graduation, and last Friday’s prom.

Friday night was the home school “spring formal” or “prom” and it was such a wonderfully successful event!  My girl looked like a 1930s’ movie star, and her date had a delightfully “Whovian” flair with his suspenders and bow tie, coordinated with her beautiful gown (thank you, Marcelyn and Hannah!).  They had a great time together — he impressed us immensely by his attentiveness to our girl.  She said she didn’t open a single door for herself the entire evening, and he told me a few days before that he just wanted to make sure she had a wonderful evening.  He brought her a lovely wrist corsage that went with her dress perfectly.  Florists have come up with the neatest twist on the old wrist corsage:  now, in addition to having the stretchy bit of elastic that fits round the wrist, there’s a color coordinated bracelet that serves as a keepsake after the flowers are long gone.  Neat, isn’t that?

Here are some photos of my girl and her date:
