Rachel's Big Night
Last night was the homeschooling teen club's first spring dance. After months of planning, anticipation and nervousness (not only on the part of the kids, but on the part of the moms, who worried that everyone would kind of stand there looking at each other, and not dancing...) the big day finally arrived. Rachel was excited all day, and when it was finally time to start on her nails and hair she couldn't stop giggling and squealing. My friend Trisha and her daughter Chloe came to pick us up, and the whole ride the girls were talking and laughing nonstop.
I am happy to say that every single kid there spent the entire evening dancing (except for when they had dinner and dessert)--they all had a blast. They all came home talking about next year. They all had nothing but good things to say. They all had a great time. Trisha and I had a great time, too--we went out for dinner and then had coffee and talked and talked and talked. I am so happy that Rachel's first dance was so much fun.
Rachel and Chloe did report that the boys made a lot of silly moves on the dance floor--but they danced all night. Which is basically all we could want of this age group!
