Recently, my homeschool group had a USO party. We took swing dancing lessons for about a month to prepare. Finding dresses and shoes was the hardest part for my family. Rachel and I were gone the first week of November, and we hadn’t found a dress before that. The one we found for me was a size 10, so we had to alter the neckline. I was very happy with the dress, and felt that it looked very authentic.
In addition to swing dancing lessons, we also took line dancing lessons. You know, Electric Slide, Cotton-Eye-Joe, Cupid Shuffle, etc. During the dance, we got to put our line dancing skills to use! After a while (2 hours) we started to get goofy and play Ring-around-the-Rosy: something I haven’t played in about 10 years.
All in all, it was a great party. We had doughnuts, licorice, and Coke in bottles. My mouth waters just thinking about it! Now I have to convince the moms to do it again!
