  Well, in this and the posts below you’ll find the much belated photos from this year’s
Christian Home Educators Fellowship of Missouri’s

(Better late than never!?!)
The photos that look nice were taken by Kate Gamel
The dark photos were taken by Andrew Wong

  A few of us boys who were not clothed in pleated garb decided to get our own group photo.  You would guess from their facial expressions you may guess some of them are concealing tommy guns.

Yes! Better late than never! Anyway...I still haven't finished posting about the Conference; so you aren't the latest.

I am glad you still posted these pictures! They are great. I loved all the costumes.
Good memories...

Oh, I love these pictures! You all captured some great shots.

Unfortunately, I can't think of any humorous captions, but that is a funny picture!
I also like the one with Mrs. Thomas and Darcie laughing. :)

The one of the Hannah and Rebekah Scheffer is so pretty and sweet!

Love all the pictures. It was a great day/night.
