They had it catered by a local catering company. The fried chicken was crisp, the mashed potatoes creamy, the mac cheese cheesy, the roll -- well, you get the point. It was excellent. And being that they are an agriculture organization, they didn't leave out the green vegetable. We had the most delicious spinach salad with fresh strawberries. It had some kind of creamy dressing, that was OMGosh fabulous!
Here is a picture of my sweet baby boy. Just look at that smile! The reason for the big smile wasn't because his mom was taking his picture. Oh, no, ma'am. It was because of the cute little girl behind him. That's his GF. She's also in the FFA.
If you've been following my blog a little while, you may remember awhile back Cam had lost part of a very important project for his Ag Science class. I blamed it on his unorganized, messy -- well, let's call it what is -- pigpen of a room! He never found the original project. With his teacher's help, backed-up pictures, and saved Word Perfect documents, he was able to re-create the project. Last night he won this plaque for all his hard work.
He earned two pins, two certificates and a plaque. Next school year he'll get one of the nifty FFA jackets that you can see the FFA officers wearing.
Because next year he'll be an FFA officer. He and his girlfriend were chosen as officers.
They're not going to be Ms. President and Mr. Vice-President, but Mr. Parliamentarian and Ms. Sentinel. I was indeed a very proud mama!
He has become quite the agriculturalist. I'm going to stay on him with his grades. UGA has an excellent agriculture school. We all know he was a bulldog even before he was born! Right now he has his sight set on Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College in Tifton. Better known around here as ABAC. It's waaaaaaaaaaaaay down in South Georgia. Hope they let moms come too.
I'll be gone for the Memorial Day Weekend and I probably won't get a post in till Tuesday. I just wanted to remind everyone to remember all our military heroes.
It's a very meaningful day, but I feel like I've sorta lost touch with what the real meaning of the observance is. It's really a very touching story. I believe I read that at 3 o'clock in whatever time zone you're in, you're asked to pause and remember our veterans. I'm going to try to remember to do that. I believe we should remember the day for what it was set out to be; a Memorial Day for our nation's veterans. Seems the least I can do. I won't be posting for a few days while I'm on vacation. But don't you worry, I've asked my BFF and baby sister, Suz to be my guest blogger. She's gonna do a few posts while I'm gone. I'm so excited to read her writing. It's gonna be a blast for me. Of course, I have an ulterior motive. I'm trying to get her feet wet, hoping she'll love blogging so much she'll start one for herself.
Here she is with her handsome hubby Jason.And here are their three kiddos. Alayna, Eli and Reid.Their last day of school is today, so I'm betting her posts are going to be pretty good. Bless her heart. I don't know how she does it.
Please remember in your prayers my cousin Marie who has liver cancer. Marie is in her '50s and her mother Mattie Lou is doing most of her caretaking. Mattie Lou is a sweet and gentle lady with a big heart and smile. Pray for her too. I know she's taking it all very hard. Marie is, after all, still one of her babies.
Hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend! May you be blessed with much love and laughter with the ones you love to laugh with. Till Tuesday.
