speech tournament

Andrew is competing at the NCFCA Regional Speech Tournament this week!  Thankfully, it's only about an hour away (one year we had to travel 7 hours to get there). For the last 6 years  NCFCA has been a big part of Andrew's life.  He's qualified for the  national tournament  3 times and gone twice.  He's made so many friends, gotten to travel and  learned valuable speaking skills. It's been such a positive experience!  

On Monday I went to the tournament to be a parent judge, but they didn't need me. So, I got to watch 2 of Andrew's speeches!  Today is the last day of the tournament and I'm going to be a judge in the final rounds (of course I won't be judging Andrew) .  Andrew called last night and it said he qualified for the semi-finals with 3 speeches.  So, it will be an exciting (and long) day today!  He's really hoping to go to nationals again this year.  It will be his last time going since he is graduating this June.
