Miss Louisiana visits the Wetlands! — 17 Comments

  1. I would think this would be a good reason for an excused absence. How often do you get to spend time with a celebrity? I hope the school goes easy on him. I hope Miss Louisiana enjoyed the tour.

  2. Life experience is the best lesson he could get that day. Who cares what the school thinks! I’d have let my kids skip to have done that too. Heck, I can think of one Jr. High science teacher (Mr.Coach) who would have skipped too! LOL

  3. What an honor for Termite and such a memory-making day as my Grandma used to say. I absolutely agree with MrsCoach’s sentiments.

    If Kelsi has a blog it would be wonderful for her to highlight your tour! Exposure, Exposure, Exposure.

    (Kinda like ‘location, location, location.)

    Those are great pics and you’re a wonderful Mom—keep it up BW! 😉

  4. If you continue taking out celebrities, you’ll need to start charging more for your tours. Some people might pay double to take a tour with a celebrity. I’m curious…Was Kelsi’s tour for her personal enjoyment or was it to promote Louisiana in some way as part of her official duties?
    I hope Termite’s heart rhythm problem has stabilized and he was able to return to school with an excusable absence from Dr. Mom.

  5. In my view, you get the flat-out-superb-mama of the day award.

    When I was seven years old, my mom let me stay home from one of the last days of school to watch the coronation of Queen Elizabeth on tv. It was one of the first world-wide broadcasts, and we watched it on a little 12 inch black and white screen. I’ve never forgotten the magic of it all.

    It’s a fact. Not everything worth learning happens in a classroom!

      • I’m SOOOOOOOOOO glad to read Termite is cooking. My brothers and I were raised in a home where they learned to keep a house and cook and I learned to shingle, paint, and do plumbing, etc. It really came in handy when Hubby and I had our own Home Maintenance business. I guess my parents were “ahead of their time”. Everyone needs to learn these life skills. I’m proud to be a member of BW’s W.W.T.T.s (technically the last T is Hubby’s).

        • Yep, they sure were ahead of their time. Termite is either going to get a degree in criminal justice and work for wildlife and fisheries or he is going to culinary school . . . at least that’s what he told me a couple weeks ago when he had to write a paper about future job ideas . . . . I think either one is a noble choice . . .

          • He could actually do all three. He could work for wildlife and fisheries (which is wildlife criminal and justice) and he can cook for his family!

  6. That was so great! What a beautiful girl! I’m sure your son was thrilled beyond belief missing school to guide Miss Louisiana 🙂 I’d have been a Bad Parent too, lol.
    Very cool!

    • Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Mikey! I went to your blog and saw you wrestling a rattle snake. You are now my new hero!!! What a brave woman you are . . . must get it from your grandmother! BW
