Crazy Town

Crazy Town....that's been our life for the past few months!  I mean that in a good way, of course.

Finishing up the school year with a husband who is a teacher AND a young man who is a graduating senior = crazy town.

We had baseball games, banquets, and graduation preparations.  Somewhere in the middle of all the activities, we made two whirlwind trips to Denver.

Here are a few shots from the award banquets.

This is the District FFA Banquet...our young man was the President for the district.
Their fearless leader looking over them...aka my hubby.

This next one is our local FFA Chapter Banquet.
 Here, my husband is receiving a hug from one of his special students and then...a little tear or two, from both of them.

 My husband LOVES talking about his students and all of their many accomplishments.


 Special moment with my two favorite guys.

 Here's a little baseball action.




Then the BIG EVENT....graduation!
The graduate with my husband's family.


 Here we all are...I was so thrilled my husband's family made the trip from Oklahoma, and my daughter was able to come from Fort Collins.

And, the BEST part....he was the Valedictorian, and gave a terrific speech!
 Gosh we were so proud!


Then, we made a mad dash for home, where we had a reception.  NOTE:  I JUST REALIZED THE DATE IS VERY WRONG ON THESE PICTURES!  (sorry for yelling)




My mom, my daughter, and my niece.

 I lost count, but I think we had 100+ guests.  We served my husband's world famous brisket, pulled pork, coleslaw, and numerous other salads and sides.  It was sooooo yummy!
 Yes, that is a roll of duct tape being used a cup holder!  Hey, when you live in the country and the wind blows 100 mph, duct tape comes in handy.


 Can you guess where he is going to college?  Oklahoma State University has offered him numerous scholarships, as well as, accepted him into The Honors Program AND The CEAT Scholars Program.
He will be studying biomechanical engineering with a minor in agronomy.
