Yesterday was pretty much awesome. We had our first speech meet of the year and it was great! It was a huge meet, and we only had half our team there. My two more experienced girls both placed, twice actually. They double-entered and did a duo together, plus they placed in their own catagories. One was a tenth grader, and she won prose! (It's actually a pretty big deal.) I am very proud of both of them. I was totally on cloud nine last night.
And, to add to my fun, I was given two blogging awards by Victoria at Confessions of a Twentysomething Fiction Writer. She has a great blog about her journey as a writer.
Now I have to share ten random facts about myself and pass these great awards on to someone else.
1: I am the middle of five kids.
2: In kindergarten my teacher asked my mom if I had ever been exposed to paper and pencils. I had, of course, but I apparently had no interest.
3: I got married at 22, to a man I'd only known for a little over a year.
4: We'll have been married for eight years this month.
5: I started showing horses when I was ten.
6: As a kid I had huge glasses and was a major nerd.
7: I was a captain on my speech team for three years.
8: I started coaching speech the year after I graduated.
9: I love spaghetti.
10. I think it's hard to come up with ten random facts about me.
Okay, now to pass this award on to others. :) Aka, the fun part. (I tried to give these to people who didn't already have them.)
