Catching My Breath

That’s what the last few days have been about. This past week was crazy! I know, I say that all the time. It’s my life. Crazy. I think maybe I wouldn’t know what to do if I wasn’t going in 4 different directions at any given moment. I guess you adjust to whatever your life gives you. And this week it gave me some serious speed!

A couple weeks ago I received a text from Oldest Son just as I was ready to head into a meeting at work.

“I’ve got something else for you to stress about.”

That kid knows me so well! It takes a few texts before I get enough details to make any sense. Turns out he was nominated for WPA Big Man on Campus Court. {WPA, or Woman Pays All, is what we called Sadie Hawkins back in the day. It’s a little more formal that when I was in school. } He was completely shocked by the nomination. And so was I.

This week there were lots of festivities leading up to the dance Saturday night. Wednesday night was rehearsal, Friday morning breakfast for the candidates and WPA Assembly, Friday night basketball game and crowning of the WPA Queen, Saturday night dance and crowning of the Big Man on Campus.

Rehearsal was quick and easy.

We hosted breakfast for the candidates for BMOC at our house at 7 Friday morning. It was fun to see all the guys dressed up and spiffy. I’m pleased to report no ties were spilled on in the eating of the breakfast!

4 of the 12 boys have been in Boy Scouts together since they were in 1st or 2nd grade. And they have all four earned their Eagle Scout Award! Pretty cool group of kids. 

They headed off to school by 8 and most of the parents hung around and chatted before heading to the assembly.

At the assembly all the candidates were introduced. Oldest Son was the first to be announced and he was nervous! He pulled it off without  glitch – no tripping involved:). But this is when it hit me. And the tears started flowing. Hearing them announce his name and what he has been a part of at the high school, just hit me. That is my baby boy! And he is a man now.

The seniors in the marching band played and danced to Party Rock Anthem. It was awesome!

The crowning of the Big Man on Campus went smoothly Saturday night. I got to escort Oldest Son out during the dance. And neither of us tripped:). It was such a fun night. I am so proud of the man that Oldest Son has become.

Middle Son went to the dance as well. He had a good time too.

We drug Youngest Son along for the crowning.

And we spent the rest of the weekend recovering from all the fun.
