Aubrey was chosen for the Jr. National Young Leaders conference in Washington DC.
she leaves in the morning on her first trip by airplane. Her Mom and I have been making sandwiches and cupcakes to help raise money for her trip. Good friends from work, Glen and Kitty Dietrich made Sloppy Joe sandwiches recently and we sold sandwiches and chips at work for lunch. The sloppy joe's are delicious. Ms Kitty gave me permission to share her recipe here.
I want Aubrey to know how proud everyone is of her and to wish her a wonderful trip.
Her mom is worried because this will be Aubrey's first trip alone. As a Mom, I would be worried too, but Aubrey is so smart and mature for her age, I know she will be fine and will come back home with many wonderful stories. Aubrey you be good and be SAFE!
Know that there are many people back home that loves you and misses you!
