Post-Convention Blues

It happens every year - State FFA Convention is over and that makes me kind of sad. I never realize how much I enjoy helping with convention until it is over. We had a great time, and it never gets old. I love working with such fun people and seeing students accomplish great things. I really struggle when I see kids disappointed, but I know there's nothing I can do about that but pray that God gives them peace. But seeing the faces of the students who were elected to state office just makes me smile. Their faces just light up. I love it.

So we're back to the daily grind. I have a dissertation to edit (not mine! I'm DONE with school forever!), and Bridget has discovered a love for swimming, so we're doing that a lot. I'll start watching a little baby girl in July, so we're gearing up for that. Next weekend I'm visiting some friends in KC, then two weeks after that we'll be in Pittsburg to visit Bill's sister and bro-in-law. It will be a busy month! (And somewhere in there I'll turn 27. Oh, I feel old!)
