A Mormon Prom




Monica is sixteen now, and gets to date. On April 9th a Prom was held for the Mormon kids (and friends) in this area (2 Stakes). Its like a regular prom, but with LDS standards. Specifically, it comes down to modest dresses, clean music and clean dancing. Never any alcohol or rented hotel rooms. The kids cluster at homes before the prom for their photo-ops. The dinner and dancing is at a local country club. It ends around 11:30 pm and then the kids usually head to another home for more food and fun. Monica's group had a full-blown breakfast at midnight and jacuzzi time.

I only blog about this because I can't believe how lucky my girls are to have a nice, raunch-free place to be with good kids like them. I wish all parents could have an event like this for their teens. Monica went with a friend, Alex.

I agree that this is a wonderful event, and look at these wonderful kids that Monica was able to be with! So fun. I was talking to her & Amanda at church, and Amanda seems pretty excited for when it will be her turn! You have beautiful girls! I think you have many nights ahead of you waiting for them to come home from their dates. (and you look great too Susan!)
