What'cha Workin' on Wednesday ~Turkey Time...Just One More Time ~These are the Times I will Miss the Most #lovefamilyand consumerscience

My days are numbered...now with single digits.

My potted plant, a retirement gift from the school board,
graced our dessert buffet table on this big day.

This team so efficiently prepared all the turkeys for roasting.

Sometimes, though,
 you just need to call on a young man to do the messy work.


78 pounds of turkey for 90 students...

...waiting, along side the desserts,
in the refrigerator overnight.

Yes, that is 5:40 A.M.
First block turkeys were roasting at 350 degrees.

It wasn't long until the students were busy preparing their side dishes,
as our State Champion Debate Coach, Mr. Konda 
and School Resource Officer Carlson
 did the honor of carving the birds.

A brief message from our guests before we serve.
(Does it look like all boys here?)

Here are the girls (with a couple more guys).

The next block brought SRO Carlson back, along with 
Probation Officer Rau.
We have all worked together for years.

Officer Carlson speaks about family and learning your family's traditions...
on a serious note, he shares about his mom passing away in December.
He misses being able to call her and ask about how a special dish is prepared.


Our last block enjoyed the presence 
of Teacher and Coach, Mr. Hansen.


His message about family and traditions was pretty special.
I'm not going to lie,
I shed a few tears.

This was the perfect ending
to a pretty perfect day!

Take care,
~Natalie
