Emma's First Prom...Well, Caleb too

Tonight the staff at the camp had "prom." I don't exactly know how it all came up at first, but I know that they took the idea and ran with it. The even decided to take donations for it to benefit Invisible Children, a Christian organization trying to raise awareness about the horrible conditions for children (starting with Africa).

We have had a long week, so we had a hard time deciding whether or not to go. But, we decided to throw caution to the wind and have some fun. So we got the kids and ourselves dressed up (as dressed up as you can be at 7 months pregnant!!) and went to prom. We even taught Caleb how to hold out his arm for Emma, and we enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor...not to mention the punch, cookies, and strawberries!!! We had such a great time with all the staff, and the kids felt so grown up with the strobe lights and loud music.

All in all, it was great. Now this was a prom I can handle them going to. Maybe Ben and I will have to go to all their proms. =)

At our church, they had something called Pretty, Pink, Princess Prom where girls went with their dads to a prom and got their pictures taken and got tiaras and fuzzy pink journals. The journals were for the dads to write to their daughters about how special they were, etc. Fun, huh?

Are there pictures? I want to see the kids arm in arm!

Invisible children is an amazing organization/movie. The bridge has been supporting them and sharing the film. :-)
