Where we've been...

We have returned safely from a trip to Seattle for the girls to compete in our denomination's Bible quiz nationals.

We're still feeling pretty tired, after arriving home between 4:30 and 5:00 AM Tuesday morning.  That wasn't our original schedule but thankfully, with the holiday, we've got a little time to recover and get back on Eastern Time.

Julianne had a birthday while we were away.  I'll try to get a post up showing pictures of her special day sometime soon.

Oh, and nationals?  The girls were on a team together (which is VERY nice for Mom and Dad-we didn't have to split up and each only get to watch one daughter).  They did well enough in the Round Robin competition to get advanced to the top division (not what we registered for).  In the double elimination tournament, they won their first round but were defeated in the next two.  Making it to the A division put them in the top 12 teams overall, but they didn't place for a trophy.  We are still very proud of them and the rest of our team.


  1. Sounds like it was a good trip. Glad you are back home safe and sound. The reminder of Julianne's birthday reminds me of our fun surprise a couple of years ago.

  2. And proud of them you should be! :) good job...and get some rest!

  3. That is so cool...So glad you had such a great trip!

    Way to go girls!


  4. I cannot believe that Julianne is 17... Keeka, pretty soon she is going to catch up to you. I only have four years until we're the same age :-/ I think I might stop at 29 as well.


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
