Inaugural Ball

Our, uh, latest First Lady and President at one of their inaugural balls.

   A few weeks ago I was REALLY dry on ideas.  I just could not think of anything to post.  Not so now!  Our homeschool co-op has a spring banquet every year for 8th-12th graders.  In the past I have not been interested, but who can pass up a ball.  A BALL!  The theme this year is The Inaugural Ball, since we had an election and inauguration in the recent past.  It is tomorrow, and I cannot wait!!  Some of my friends that go to our chapel here are also going, so it will be lots of fun.  You can either go formal, or you can dress as one of the past presidents/first ladies.  I'm going formal.  There is going to be a dinner, but the main event is the dancing.  A dance instructor named Hannah is going to come and teach us a English Country Dance form Pride and Prejudice, but there will also be waltzing and maybe a little swing dancing.  I am so excited!  I plan to take lots of pictures, but with my brain I'll probably forget to charge the battery or something.


  1. Sounds like fun.

    Although Obama stepped on Michelle Obama's dress and ripped it.
    Of course the media only said 'how graceful, how sweet'...BLAH!
    But, a ball would be FUN!!!

  2. I didn't know that! How funny! Not for her, of course. I didn't watch it or anything like that, we don't support Obama's views, but I'm trying to respect him as authority.

  3. oh. i really support obama. don't let me start a debate or something, because i go on and on and on and on and on.
    a ball! how fun! just what will you WEAR? just kidding. i always find it funny how in movies their like "oh what will i simply wear?"

  4. That sounds like sooo much fun, Joanna!!!!
    You had better take LOTS of pictures!!!!


  5. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures. :)

    Yeah, I didn't have ANY trouble finding a fairy godmother. :) I've known what I'm going to wear for a while. It is an interesting story about where I got the dress though. I'll try to post about it sometime.


  6. Wow! Sounds like fun! I cna't wait to see pictures. Yes, I do try to respect him as well.
