Back in the second week of April, my youngest – the only one still in school – had his spring break. This break was at an odd time – not the week before or the week after Easter but two weeks prior. The timing was inconsequential as we were not traveling but the youngest was. He left on Wednesday of that week to head to Syracuse for three days, returning home on Friday, to compete in the NYS SkillsUSA competition. Below is a slideshow from the competition. I have photos mostly of the culinary arts and baking competitions but there were 69 different skills displayed within the competition. The BOCES that he attends had three students take first place in their respective areas and will be heading to Nationals in June.
