I forgot to take the time to toot President M's horn about her (and the DECA gal pals) first place finish in the mock competitions at the DECA Leadership Convention last week. I believe the text I received with a photo of the first place medal said "another win for Madison". Followed by her creative Facebook status that said "Respeca the DECA". I love it when kids find their passions, find something that connects them to their school, giving them ownership and pride. DECA is one of those things for M. If I don't say so myself, a medal is a nice accessories to the business dress.
(aren't these girls all gorgeous?!)
So are you wondering what did M and I did today? We made a college visit. By way of road kill avenue. At least that is what we renamed Highway 44. There is a certain love that fills when being forced to add to the mutilation of a ground up deer carcass. Uck! About 50 carcasses later we made our way to the campus of Missouri State University. It was perfect weather for a campus stroll. Our best find was as soon as we stepped foot on the campus... who did who spot, who turned his bike around to chat with us...the one and only (short lived) boyfriend M had. As he rode off I looked at M and said "I really did like him, I just never trusted him." Then we laughed. After the tour we made an impromptu visit to an old color guard friend. Unplanned is the best way to see how college kids really live in those dorm rooms, eeek! What a mess! I almost wanted to kick in my mom gene and clean that darn suite. By the time we got in the car to head home it was decided this university has made its way to the top of the list...we have the Bear wear from the bookstore to prove it.
Still the Senior Night info card portion of future plans will still read: undecided.
My info card will read: getting poorer!
