For being a state officer for FFA I get a lot of really great opportunities. One of which is doing chapter visits. I get to go around to various high schools that have FFA programs and put on workshops for the students. A lot of the workshops I do are about the FFA Organization, and the great opportunities involved. One of my other favorite workshops is about communication. It gets students involved, and never fails to get everyone laughing. Not only do I get to meet lots of awesome people and do all this fun stuff, I get to travel with some of my favorite people!!! (The other state officers!!!!) So here are some pictures of what I do on my chapter visits:

First off, the Ferry:
WHAT THE DEVIL!?!?! YOU DON'T FIND THAT IN MENAN!
(this may have needed a post of it's own! haha!)
As you can likely guess... whatever that was that we put in our mouths was... interesting to say the least. Somehow Stephen managed to swallow it quickly (maybe whole!?) But a good 5 minutes later this was still me....
This dish was better consumed without viewing...
Oh and Aunt Kathi... she's not a fan of sushi....
Overall, it was a great weekend! If only I had pictures of me driving and freaking out in 5 or 6 lanes of traffic, Stephen attempting to calm me down while giving directions and figuring out the map, us eating Tai food the night previous our sushi dinner, our reaction to a 9 story Macy's department store, us finding the ferries, and Pikes Place Market. But after this little trip, it got me thinking... taking off on random road trips is a pretty good idea.... next trip NEW YORK CITY!!!! (ha ha... I wish...)

Here are some girls in my house... and one really confident Theta Chi Boy!
These are all of the Kappa Alpha Theta girls who went to the Roller Disco! (And a guy in sparkly nylons who somehow snuck into the picture...)

Excitedly awaiting take boarding.... we waited a long time! But we had fun while we waited!
Can you guess which one is mine!?! Ha ha!!!! We knew when our luggage arrived by the polka dots!
You can't see it that well, but that is the Limo that picked us up at the airport! :)
Some of the sponsors of our Delegate Luncheons, and there keynote speakers
They block off this street for FFA members to walk down re-name it FFA Way for the week!
Our group, minus Katie our Secretary, going out for dinner!
Look at all the blue jackets flooding out of the Conseco Field house!
Some of the entertainment- the top female escape artist in the world!
The new National Officers for 2008-2009
Us down in front of the stage in our Delegate seats (We had our seats reserved right upfront!)
By the end of the week, we were exhausted.... We were sad we had to leave, but excited to go back to school, where- surprisingly- we get more sleep and are less busy! But what can I say... we miss being at the National FFA Convention.

Overall, it was a very eventful weekend! And very enjoyable! I almost felt like I was living a double life. Check out my mom's blog for the other Laura's weekend... ha ha! But for now, I'd just like to say that we have decided the State Officers need some more adventures... perhaps the next adventure for the State Officers will be skydiving.... Oh I do hope so! ha ha!
