Proud momma and kiddo

So proud of this kiddo!! Tonight was the awards program for the JROTC at the kiddo’s school. (Now I didn’t find out about it ….well..earlier today… 😏 yeah, kiddo isn’t the best at remembering to tell me these things.) So we went and prepared for a long thing… It turned out great. Sadly most of the kids didn’t show up for some reason. But those that did did great. 

Presenting the colors and pledge.(My kid is the talk one with wide shoulders😉)(in the khaki shirt, not on stage)

Before I sat down, while the kid was getting into place, I got to speak with the Major and Master Chief about my kiddo and they both had great things to say about my son!! I was very happy to hear that they enjoyed him and his hard work as he enjoyed doing it. (Probably one of the few classes he actually likes at school) I couldn’t have been prouder! Then the did the presentation of the colors and the Major gave a short speech. 

Major and the C.O.s

Lining up for their awards. (They only got the certificate tonight and will actually get the awards tomorrow in class.)

Kiddo got 4 awards for a total of 5 (or 6 ) this year. (I’ll have to ask him, because I know he has gotten at least 1 possibly 2 during the year at a school assembly) 

He’s also got the Ball coming up as well as their big fundraiser at the end of May. He’s already volunteered to help with the fundraiser and says he will be there. This was the fundraiser  that he helped with last year that got him wanting to join the JROTC, so he’s excited to be doing it again this year as an upper classman.( He will be a junior next year!) 

So proud of these boys!! Awesome young men!!

Pretty sure kiddo will be getting a new uniform if Major has any say in it… he wants him to become an officer!! (Like D and H pictures with him above) 
Anyway! Just had to share how proud I am of him and his friends! Leaving you (hopefully) with a video of what they call motivation. 
Ok so I can’t get the video to load😣 I will try to get with Sister-mine to fix it or show me how to fix it cause it’s awesomeness needs to be shared!! Lol 

Love and prayers and blessings, 

Day 7

Ok it’s day 7 and I explained yesterday that today was the first day of 10th grade for the kiddo and that I was going to try to get a before picture of him….

Well it didn’t work….these are my morning pictures of my kiddo 


Ok first of all….I feel like we have half the high school here…

Second,  y’all I zoomed this picture to get it so the stop isn’t that close to my house. Now people who know me in real life know I am just a loud person,  but y’all,  I don’t got anything on this lady bus driver…seriously I could hear her from my driveway! 

Third….totally forgot it was trash day! Lol Anyway~~so I get a text from the kid asking if he can go to a friend’s house after school. I say fine. (He gets bored because we don’t have internet or cable right now and only has so much data on his phone his daddy gave him)(friend’s house is down the street and has Wi-Fi) So this being said I honestly didn’t think I would see him til later, figuring he would head straight to said friend’s house. I decided that if I started it now I could have him some BBQ Crock-Pot chicken done by the time he came home later this evening. So I was in the kitchen when he came home.Neeeless to say I didn’t think about the fact that he would want to bring his junk home first. 

 so here is my after his first day of 10th grade picture of my kiddo. This look he is giving me is ….well not good. Sad to say he came home with a headache and I ambushed him to get a picture so momma made it worse. And yes before I am asked, we offered to buy him a new backpack for this year and he declined the offer. I offered again not 10 minutes ago. Still said no. Side note, still winning in the momma column…see the purple ear buds? My bluetooth head phone cause his stopped working.  So anyway~~hope y’all’s kiddos all had a good day. 

Love, prayers, and blessings! 

PS ~~ chicken is easy….throw in chicken, BBQ sauce, honey,and brown sugar and let it go on high for 4 hours. Comes out great every time and can be thrown in the pot with one hand.
