Tonight we had a really fun experience! It all started last night when my friend called and needed a favor. Her daughter was asked to be the Homecoming Princess for Jamestown College, however when it came time for coronation practice the prince came down ill with bronchitis. My friend thought of me and my two princes at home and called to see if we were available. By some amazing luck we were home, available and had an awesome babysitter in my house (thanks again Jenny) – unfortunately my boys were less than thrilled and needed to be begged. We went to the rehearsal and somehow (with at least a bit of bribery) I convinced Jacob to participate.
He is amazing. And was so excited! He kept saying he looked like the president. Plus when everyone in the house saw Jacob in his suit they wanted some of the action so everyone dressed up (so thank you Websters for having 3 boys and a number of suits in varying sizes to hand down to us). We looked like a pretty amazing family. Jacob made some new ‘buddies’ and thought he was pretty special. There will be more pictures coming from the professional photographer that are really fun.
Here was Jacob’s introduction:
Our Junior Prince is Jacob Webster who is in 1st grade at Gussner School. In his spare time Jacob can be found playing Legos, fishing, and playing outside. He also enjoys eating noodles and chewing bubble gum and the color blue. When he goes to college he wants to study animal science. He also enjoys long walks on the beach and peaceful sunsets. (most of this was written by me, but the end was ad-libbed by the mc of the evening and got lots of hoots and hollers from the crowd – which made Jacob walk even faster and smile bigger)
