This was just cool. Red ribbon week. Blah, blah, it happens everywhere. Don't do drugs. I like the campaign, but like many annual things, it's a tad dry, becomes mundane & predictable. This year, one of our local mom's applied for special school privleges right around red ribbon week. It allowed our school (which WAS chosen!!) to have the National Guard land a helicopter on the soccer field. Out of the helicopeter jumps DEA agents. Then, military dudes, DEA agents AND Miss Colorado talked to the kids about living drug free and making healthy choices. (I know . . I'm still trying to figure out the pageant aspect, too . . but just go with me on this . . . . ) It was SO, SO, SO cool. The boys loved the chopper. The girls wanted a picture with a beauty queen. I have to admit, I was a little verclempt.
