Life is happening faster than I can blog! That's not at all a bad thing, but I do want to post a few things for the record. (Do you know what I'm talking about, fellow bloggers?)
As the school year nears its end, we have had several special culminating activities. We're ending the year with a bang! And there are a few more events to come. Although she is probably my shyest child, Bekah is also one of my most social. Does that make sense? She will likely be
one of the quietest in the room, but that doesn't keep her from wanting to do all. the. things.
This spring, Bekah attended her first formal! It was a special evening, hosted by a nearby homeschool co-op. We liked that it was not only open to couples, but to groups of kids as well.
One of the best parts for me? The hair and make-up session before the formal! Bekah and Maddie, and friends Grace and Lydia curled and sprayed and powdered and polished, with Kati helping too. So much girliness . . . so much fun!
Yes, there was a young man here too. Gavin came along with Maddie and began the afternoon reading his book. Then the two of us went on a coffee run and after we distributed the drinks, he remained at the table with the girls. (Smart boy, huh?)
And here they are, all dolled up for the formal!

A beautiful/handsome group!
Precious young people with so much of life before them.
It was a privilege to be a small part of this "first"!
Such a good looking group and I can tell they all like each other. I’m still chuckling over Ron’s photo bomb. 🙂ReplyDelete
You caught that! :DDelete
They do like each other which made it such a fun day/night!
What fun for this lovely/handsome group. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

Your granddaughter has grown up to be such a beautiful young lady. All the girls are lovely and have such a handsome escort. Know you are proud of them all. Blessings, Sharon D.ReplyDelete
Yes, I am . . . so proud and thankful for them all!Delete
I love every bit of the sweetness of these photos. Beautiful young women, girls turning into young women, sweet smiles, handsome young man, granddad unaware of being in the photos. It’s wonderful for them to have community together as friends!ReplyDelete
I love all those things right along with you! I was so privileged to be a part of their special day!Delete
Everyone looks so beautiful (and handsome). I'm sure they will look back on this day with great joy! ♥ReplyDelete
Thank you, Martha Ellen! It was a memory-making day!Delete
They look good and grown up in their formal finery! The makeup hair session looks like a lot of fun. I well remember my first formal...what memories! I love Bekah's dress especially, and how beautifully it falls in the back, as well as her curls ...ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dotsie! What fun, thinking back to your first formal!Delete
They are lovely, and so grown up looking. What fun for them, and perhaps a heart tug for you.ReplyDelete
Oh, Lorrie . . . definitely a heart tug . . .Delete
Bekah looks so beautiful (as they all do) and grown up. I never had girls nor did I ever go to a formal even growing up...I enjoy seeing these sweet couples!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Debby! Bekah is the first of my children to go to a formal (they didn't have such things in the "dark ages" of homeschooling ~wink~), but she really enjoyed it and hopes to go again next year!Delete
