CCHS Formal Night 2019

Our homeschool co-op holds a formal every spring. I offered to help with decorating and Chris and I chaperoned! 

It's held at a local country club. It already has white lights strung up and a nice dance floor but it needed something *more*. My mom has a beautiful, creative mind and she let us use a lot of her great decorating stuff to make it special for the kids!

We hung gold stars and my mom even purchased color disco lights that we hooked up to hit the dance floor...

The food table pic is a bit blurry...but it gives you an idea of how lovely it looked as well. My mom made those fantastic flower cookies on the right of the table...

My mom also let us use her punch fountain. It was put together wrong at first...so we had a bit of fixing to do (my mom and Chris worked on that)...but soon it was flowing beautifully...

Xavier and his friend, Renee (who is one of Madelyn's bffs). He invited her to go to the formal with him...

 The kids...dancing and having a lovely time...

This Christian co-op is a blessing to us. We just love our friends there. None of us our perfect...but we all live to the glory of Christ! This formal is such a sweet thing. There is no inappropriate dancing...just fun. A lot of the boys are real gentlemen and will ask girls to dance who are standing on the sides (their fathers have taught them well!). They don't slow dance inappropriately either. There was proper hand placement...and distance between them (without looking ridiculous).

I think the kids all had a really good night. Xavier wasn't dancing much (I blame that on 15 year old awkwardness....but he said next year he is definitely dancing!) as well as some other boys who I think just felt nervous. But we'll just keep encouraging them to have fun!

It was a fun evening for us chaperones as well! But oh my, exhausting! I was so ready to hit the hay after cleaning up! I look forward to it all again next year, Lord willing! :)

I have finally taken the time to transfer pics from my phone to my computer so I can post some things! I know I am not keeping up with my blog like I used to....but this is just a different season of life! :o)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a lovely week!
