Today was Mat's swearing in for the Sheriff's Office!!! :D
My parents had planned to come up to see it, but my dad had an emergency at work, so they couldn't make it. So, I got up early and had myself and the girls ready and got to the courthouse. Liz Cooper met me there and then Mat showed up and his parents, too.
This was the first time in awhile that they had the swearing in at the Commissioners Office, they were doing it at the Sheriff's office. They decided it would be nice to have it public, so family and friends could watch. It was really nice and I'm glad they changed it, so we could take part in Mat's new career. :D
Here's what his new badge looks like. :)
The Members were all very nice and everyone enjoyed watching the girls, who decided that it would be a great idea to throw tiger on the floor and then go get him. :s It was embarassing to me, but everyone else thought it was cute!! :)
It seems that Mat will be working with some great guys, which makes me feel better. :)
