Busy Weekend

This past weekend was State DECA competition for my students. We left Friday morning to stay in Downtown Norfolk. We started with lunch on the Spirit of Norfolk. They had great food and a DJ so the kids had a great time. Then we got checked into the hotel and settled before we started with meetings and opening sessions.

The rest of the weekend was filled with competitions and keeping up with my 14 students. I had a really hard time with the long hours and lots of walking but the kids had a great time. Saturday night they had a big dance for the students. Noah and I went down to watch but there were so many kids there we couldn't really see anything so we just went back upstairs.

Sunday morning we had the final awards ceremony and then headed home. We didn't have any winners this year but everyone did a great job and I'm pretty sure they had a great time in spite of the terrible weather!
