Blast From The Past ~ Civil War Ball, March 25, 2000

We were privileged to go to three Civil War Balls in 2000, 2001, and 2002.
The first ball we went to was just Court and Rachel and I.
Rachel was part of the homeschool Civil War reenactment group which was called Bonnets and Bayonets.
Bonnets and Bayonets put on the Civil War Ball.
2000 was the very first Ball they did.
I will post the other year's balls in the next few weeks.
They still have the Civil War Ball every year in our area.
It is run by homeschool graduates now.
I wish we could go to the Civil War Ball again. It was such fun.
But we don't have the money for the tickets and we don't have the money to make outfits. None of us girls fit in our ball gowns and the boys never have gotten to go.

I hope you enjoy the photos.
I have enjoyed the look back.

My hubby took photos of each family group at the Ball.

We did not get to many photos of us dancing because we were busy dancing.
It was a great night.

Now it's your turn...

The purpose of Blast From The Past is to link up a post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL My posts will mostly be about events that happened prior to blogging, as a way to share those things with the world.
