Lunch with the Mayor… Day 1108 29NOV11

I got up with the boys and after a bite of breakfast Joshua and I got started on his school work while Jarrod worked by himself. 

It wasn't long before we had to get ready to go meet Renee and head off to Jarrod's special lunch with the Mayor of Tampa Bob Buckhorn. Jarod submitted some artwork to be considered for a Christmas card that the CCC will sell this season and his art was one of the final selections. To celebrate they held a luncheon and the Mayor presented each winner with an award which included a copy of the cards that have been printed and will be for sale in Publix's all over the area very soon. The card turned out very nice and includes Jarrod's picture on the back along with a short bio he wrote. Needless to say we are all very proud of Jarrod and really enjoyed going to the luncheon with him. I will have a picture of the event as soon as the photographer from the CCC emails it to me and I will post it when it comes in. 

We headed home afterwards to get some stuff done around the house and rest a bit. The weather has been getting steadily cooler and when we went out to skate right before dinner it was marvelous outside :) 

Allie and Jamie are leaving for home in the morning :( so we had a final movie night, complete with popcorn, with all of the kids. We watched Cars 2 which was really good and quite funny in places. Afterwards it was straight to bed for all the younger folks.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

There's a celebrity in the house!!!! Way to go Jarrod. I can hardly wait to see your artwork.

So sad to hear Jamie and Allie are leaving. Maybe their tires will all be flat in the morning and Tampa will be completely out of air and they will have to stay over.

Kee kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
