The first thing we did was deliver apple pies to many if not all of our senators, representatives, and even our governor! I can't remember the final count, but I think there were around 180 pies delivered!
Yep, it was a lot of pies!
Below are all the people who were involved in the apple pie deliveries!
All of us APDs (Apple Pie Deliverers) receiving our orders!
It is an unavoidable fact that I am a country boy. I am most comfortable in a pair of holey jeans and a worn T-shirt, and I didn't even own a sports jacket till, well, yesterday actually (last-minute Goodwill shopping is awesome!). Poor Brielle didn't recognize me for half the day! ;0)
But then again, who says country boys can't get dressed up every now and then?
(But yes, I did draw the line at wearing a tie) ;0)
My pretty sisters!
Delivering the pies was very interesting. More often than not we would just give the pies to the secretary or aide of the senators and representatives, though every once in a while we got to deliver the pie to the actual VIPs themselves! ;0)
Haha, well, this was my first go at handing off a pie below. I forgot the little two sentence script and fumbled through the whole thing--but hey, I did manage to give them the pie, at least. I got more confident as the day went on till I had the delivery down pat and just had fun with the whole thing. ;0) Now I wonder why I was even nervous at all . . .
Here was one of the really nice representatives we got to meet!
After all the pies were delivered, we APDs and a bunch of other homeschoolers gathered under the Rotunda for a time of fellowship and encouragement! One of the most awesome things was singing "God Bless America" right there in the capitol, with our voices ringing magnificently off the marble walls of the Rotunda!
I could write about and post more pictures of today, but as you can guess, I am pretty wiped out after the long day. Time to hit the sack (who came up with that phrase, anyway?)! Be checking my mom's blog for more pictures! Goodnight!
