E-17 wants to call it “Prom”. So we call it “Prom”. Some of the other parents in our homeschooling support group do not like all of the negatives associated with the word “Prom” and prefer to call it “Teen Night”. So we call it “Teen Night”. Some prefer to call it “Prom Alternative”. So we call it “Prom Alternative”, too. I’m thinking “Night of the Living Teens” works for me. We are just blessed to have such a special night that the title of it doesn’t really matter.
We started the evening early at one of our local parks for photos.
Then dinner out and after that to He Brews coffee shop for costume trunk, ice cream, Wii, and dancing.
E17 and Batman. The Cupid Shuffle!
(That’s me in the yellow.)
Some worn out girls at midnight!
This momma is worn out too but happy!

I was treated to breakfast by one of my nearest, dearest, and longest homeschooling mom friends. The purpose for this was to plan this springs Teen Night. Of course, this led to the discussion of past events.
Here’s some photos “besties” from last spring when we threw a prom (alternative) for our homeschool support groups high school students.
The girls made their own corsages. Notice their purity rings.
We met at White Haven, a local tourist spot. for a photo shoot.
Dinner and shared dessert at a nice out of town restaurant .Outside in the garden gazebo. This is where they danced “The Cupid Shuffle”
Changed and comfy playing board games at the after party.
This year’s teen night will be different but still wonderful. Our support group has grown so much that our estimated head count looks like a minimum of 20 teens. After photos and dinner we have party at a reserved hall with Wii games, music, costume trunk photo booth, and an ice cream sundae bar.
E17, B15, and myself are very excited about these plans and looking forward to this special night. Z7 says it’s not fair. He doesn’t want to wait 8 more years for his homeschooler’s night out.
