I guess while I’m praising my sons, I should mention my youngest. He and his Envirothon team (coached by his mother) are going to State. They competed in their first Envirothon competition last week. They played second in the competition (to a team that has been there several times) and first in our district. They won $75. (That was the most exciting part to the team members, they each got $15). Since they placed first in our district their entry fee to State will be paid. They also received a big honkin’ trophy. They’ll pass it around for a little while. I’m not sure where it’s final resting place will be. They really studied hard and learned a lot.

I’m proud of this son, too.
