Colby and Dana had a little fun playing some 'game', with the cell phone (after school hours of course! No cell phones allowed during school hours!), some game that is evidently hard to explain - but looked like they were having lots of fun!
Governor Rounds was kind enough to pose for a picture with Colby & we got Dana to stand in too! Thanks Dana! We had a fun day & Colby thought it was pretty cool having you there! Well, I really enjoyed having you there too actually!
This year's All State Chorus members sang the National Anthem at the start of the program & led the audience with the singing of "God Bless America" at the end at Gov. Rounds' request (pictured). Colby is the Philip Alto for All State Chorus this year - how fun! (That will be in Sioux Falls on November 1st!)
At the very end of the evening, Governor Rounds was so kind to pose for a quick photo with some of the kids that met with him earlier in the day for a question & answer period. Wish they all would still have been around (there were 29 of them at the meeting - top 6 or so from each class). But it was very nice to be able to get this picture of at least this many!
It was a very big day for Philip & I think we presented ourselves well. I was the 'photographer for the day' so have many photos to remember the day with!
It has been an extremely busy week and we have our 1st football game tonight & our 1st volleyball game tomorrow night (Miss Colby is SO excited for that!!!), so the weekend doesn't prove to be any slower! (Lincoln had their 1st football game last night - haven't talked to him yet but I heard on the news that they lost - the freshmen are all red-shirting, so stood with the team on the sidelines in their jerseys the way I understood it).
Hopefully by tomorrow though I will give everybody an update on the house - today I have sports buttons to crank out & football t-shirts to sort through - and people to feed at noon...
Have an awesome weekend!!!
