Homeschool Historical Ball

Last weekend on Saturday, November 9, 2013 my oldest cupcake (age 13), my youngest cupcake (3 months old) and I attended our first homeschool historical ball...and we are definitely going to make this an annual tradition!   

What is a homeschool historical ball you may ask???
It's a fun event for homeschooled young adults and their families.  Young ladies are required to wear formal period costumes (medieval to WWII).  Everyone else may wear formal period costume or formal attire.  All costumes and behavior must be modest.
With a nursing baby in tow, I opted for wearing a nice skirt and blouse while I watched so many adults, young adults, and children smile, laugh and dance from 5:00-10:00PM.  The dance was held at a church's hall about an hour from where I live and it was hosted by a homeschool group in the neighboring county.  A few of us moms chatted the entire night and watched all the dancers have a "ball"! ...pun intended :)

My daughter is on the right in the purple dress and her sweet friend is in the red dress. 

 Here I am with my sweet historical dressed girl :)

The entire night I felt like I was watching live episodes of "Little House on the Prairie" as the band taught everyone the dances and then called out the dance steps throughout the evening!  It was refreshing to see girls dressed so beautifully and MODEST and they were all so graceful.  The boys and men were such gentlemen.  No one was paranoid about who they were dancing with and what they were wearing.  It was good, wholesome fun that is rare to find these days and witnessing such a joy-filled evening is one of the many reasons I homeschool! 

And here's just a short sample of the fun night...

Lots of questions….Is there a cover charge? What type of food? Finger food? Full blown meal? Period type food? Music..was it period pieces? My head is swimming with questions because I'd love to have something like this for our kids.
