The other night, we went to the home schooling high school banquet...which was 100% formal. Oh, we had oodles of fun! I do not have pictures of the actual banquet part because we did not bring the camera. Our friends did, though. Can't wait to see pics of that!
Before hand, a couple girls came over early to our house and we did hair and makeup together. It was very fun, just like everything else.
The lovely Megan:
With Our Wonderful father:
By the way, I found the dress I'm wearing at the thrift store, for $3. 50! My gifted mother made the jacket to go over it. I had to share that bit of happiness with you. ;)
Megan's little brother found this wonderful creature. Can't remember what it's called
Of course I had to get a picture with it, formal gown and all.
I rather liked the idea:
And then after the dinner, which was fab-u-lous, we went bowling, which I have not done since I was five. So, as you probably guessed, I *cough*lost both games*cough.
There, I said it. I had SO MUCH FUN though!
You can't tell that's me, but it is, and its proof I actually bowled with 40 other dressed up, laughing, cheering, screaming teenagers(I did not take part in the cheering and other loudness). It was all lit up and glowy:
Laurel did not get to go bowling, as she is having wrist problems again. She said she enjoyed herself, though.
Megan, I'm pretty sure this is you, but it might not be:
Roman gave me permission to post this picture of him bowling backwards, which was one of the rules for a game of Funky bowling we played. He said to tell you that he was giving a demo on what to do in a plane crash. Whatever. I tried bowling backwards in a skirt. It was um.... pitiful, to use the right word.
For another of the funky bowling rules, you had to hold a team mates hand while bowling. Caitlin and Roman were given permission. Roman got a strike while he was holding Caitlin's hand. He told me it was all because of her. ;)
