And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9

Well, homeschoolers in Tennessee and Kentucky have opportunities for a prom experience. We haven't quite found that here in Virginia. Last year our church held a nice Senior Banquet which made a sufficient substitute. This year, well, Haley and Bekah were about the only high schoolers so it didn't happen. So they start talking to their friends in Louisville and decide that we should go there. After much consideration, we agreed. It was supposed to be a wonderful evening - a cruise on the Belle of Louisville. Then a dark cloud began to shadow of the night to remember. The rains came down and the floods came up and the cruise on the Ohio River was cancelled! We had only days to throw something together. We decided on dinner at the Olive Garden followed by bowling. It's the perfect ingredients for a Tim Hawkins song, but a good time was had by all. I can't say enough about the fine group of young people we were with. A time for young men to be true gentlemen and young ladies to be princesses. Dinner was delightful, bowling was a blast, and what would the night be without being topped off with Krispy Kreme and a cup of coffee? While it wasn't the typical high school prom, it certainly was "A Night to Remember."
Our family was established June 20, 1987. Since then, we have been blessed with the addition of four precious children; Haley Rachel (1993), Helynn Rebekah (1994), Hunter Ryan (1999), and Holly Rae (2001). This blog is an attempt to share how God strenghthens us through the celebrations and challenges we face on a daily basis. We can do nothing without Him.
