Homeschool Prom

Meggar and I are pleased to help the Mason's committee in planning the Homeschool Spring Formal Banquet! Of course, we have chosen a Jane Austen theme:
"A Night at Netherfield Hall"
I doubt Colin Firth will be able to attend. Some girls were asking about Regency attire, but I think they were joking.
We're excited about the setting of the Tudor Room at the St. Joseph Country Club. Our dinner will feature British specialties, i.e. Cornish game hen, roast potatoes with English lavendar and herbs, parsnips, crown rolls, English trifle, and a pot of tea. We have secured a special guest speaker from Britain, she's an ex-pat who works at our Downtown Library. Meanwhile, I am still negotiating with a caricature artist and a Shakespearean Comedy Troupe from the KC Renaissance Festival. Only 3.5 weeks remaining until the big night!
Meggar went shopping (again) and decided on the purple dress! (Maybe KSU is still in her future?!) She won't let me post the photo until after her debut. She and Hannah have an "Old English Table" every Tuesday to sell tickets after Homeschool Choir. We are hoping for 40 students.
