Joshua's group received a special coin for achieving CO's Blue, a special unit recognition for excellence in all areas. Joshua was also an honors graduate and received a double advancement, which was wonderful. We were so very proud of him.
Here's my Seabee! Click here for great information about the Seabees and what they do.
Here's Joshua's whole group.
After the ceremony was over, we went to eat brunch at Cracker Barrel. Then Joshua and his friend, who is also a Navy Seabee, drove to the base outside of New Orleans, where both boys will drill, for Joshua to be checked in. We drove on home.
We all wanted a nap, but instead we cleaned horse stalls, then everyone went home for baths before going our separate ways. Steve took Brooke to a choir concert in one direction, while I took Morgan to her pep rally in another. I was awarded custody of the camera. :^D
Here's Morgan performing at her first pep rally. She's the tiniest one on the squad. She is on the junior varsity squad and they only cheer at the junior varsity basketball games. But varsity cheerleaders wanted the JV girls to be included in the homecoming pep rally.
Our homeschooling group has grown to the point where we have a tackle football team and we are members of a Christian athletic association and we play private schools all over south Louisiana.
