KYA - Kentucky Youth Assembly

We packed Ryan off to KYA today. To quote their website, KYA is a "three day, hands on experience of Kentucky's state government. KYA is a student-led conference in which teens experience first hand what it's like to debate a bill in the capitol chambers, run for state office or argue a case in the State Supreme Court".

He has really been excited about this opportunity and was very involved in writing a bill and also writing the speech to present the bill. I wish I had kept a copy of it before he carted it off! They are also required to dress up, at least during the legislative part so this ol' mama really enjoyed buying something for him to wear other than a hoodie and jeans. I thought he looked pretty spiffy, if I do say so myself!

He's been gone since after church ... sure missin' the little guy already.
