    From the sponsor of the OH homeschool prom:

    Our prom is now over. How did it go? I am still so sad since the time went to quickly. We were blessed to have individuals travel from 2-3 hours away to give their children wholesome memories. One young man personally asked my husband if he could dance with our daughter. If I needed encouragement from the homeschooling community before my prom, I do not need it now. The homeschooling teens said it all. This night “rocked” in our daughter’s words because she was with like minded teenagers. The escorts for some of our young ladies that were either public schooled or private schooled thanked us for giving them a stress free prom. If I had to do this over would I? I would not have hesitated. My only change would not have been to ask for permission to do the right thing for those teenagers that want a prom– A GOOD CHRISTIAN PROM. These words are not opposites and I am honored to be in the company of these WONDERFUL teens. Next Year— April 29, 2005. To Jo and Delaine thanks for the support, you were both great. If you are a homeschooling parent from another state and would like inspiration sent me an e-mail.

    UPDATE: Dee Dee via comment pointed out an error in the original post. I dodn’t pay close enough attention and incorrectly attributed the comment above to the sponsor of the CA prom, instead of the OH prom. Glad some folks’ eyes are better than mine. The error has been corrected.

    I discovered I needed glasses around seventh grade, long after I passed all the required eye exams with flying colors. If kids have trouble seeing, then they should talk to their parents. Using all this school time for needless exams merely wastes valuable time for kids to actually learn.
    And allow me to digress… One of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Moutos, has actually yelled at principals for wasting her classtime. She only teaches one class at my public school, and that class is for the kids who really want to learn.

    oops! I accidentally posted my response under the wrong section! It’s supposed to be down below…
    Um, about the prom… I’m kinda scared to go to my school’s prom because there was far too much sex at the last dance, and I ended up hiding in the bathroom for over an hour while waiting for my mom to pick me up from work. When I complained to the school staff, they merely said “kids will be kids”
    Then, I had this idea about schools regulating sex because the kids are too hormonal…

    Um, anyway, I’m happy for the homeschoolers and I envy them! It’s really refreshing to learn that some people still have good clean fun!

    Isn’t that comment by Alice Everidge, the Ohio mom in charge of that state’s homeschool prom?
