I’m dealing with a post-Speech Team hangover today now that the state tournament is over.
Yesterday, after two days of competition, two of my kids were state runners-up in their respective events and another duo took third place (our team took 7th overall). It’s nothing to complain about, since those are still great accomplishments, but I know how hard those kids worked to be state champions and it’s frustrating when you fall just short of that. They’re incredible kids, though, and there’s a lot of pride from all of the coaches on our team when you know they’re going to go off to college with that much talent in their back pockets.
It’s not too late to contribute — I’m keeping the fundraiser going through the end of the month:

If PayPal isn’t your thing, you can donate directly to the American Humanist Association (since they will ultimately take care of the fund) — just make sure your donation is earmarked for Jessica — or send a check to them.
