Frugal Homeschool Prom
Dress: Goodwill $4.99 (never-worn shoes also from Goodwill, $3.99)
Corsage: made by me from backyard flowers (daylilies, clover, blue sage, vinca, rosemary, lavender)
We took ginger-ale/lemonade punch with frozen raspberries, plus homemade sugar cookies.
It is good to have friends.
It is good to have friends with handsome brothers.
It is good to swing dance and waltz and troika and do the Cotton-Eyed Joe at your high-school prom, and to fall into bed at your friend's house at 1 a.m. and wear her best skirt to Mass the next day, because it looks so nice with your shoes of the night before.
It is good to be fifteen, and to know that with imagination and $20, you can do a heck of a lot.
