st. george adventures

this morning i left for st. george with my academic decathlon team from school. we left at 7 am, which was a bit early for most, and drove 5 hours to st. george - made it with one stop just like i thought. series of events: check -in to competition and pick up t-shirts, drive to hotel, check in, find rooms, unpack, decide what to do next. work on speeches with some students other people from our group went to the gypsom (sp?) gypsum (sp?) mine nearby. 5pm we went to dixie high school so the team could give their speeches and participate in an interview - total time there 1 hr. we had to arrive on thursday for one hour of competition. anyway, we went to in and out burger for dinner - not my favorite this time. we might get ice cream later tonight at the blue bunny or nielsen's frozen custard. right now some students are swimming in the pool. i am watching brian reagan (sp?) right now with my recruits - three students who i asked to come last minute to help our team because three students could no longer attend. so far the airport stuff is my favorite - "now that i see what is in this essentials bag, i realize i was overpacking" 

tomorrow is the rest of the competition. we are supposed to wear our team t-shirts we had made before we left - guess who left their's home? yep me! the most prepared/organized/paranoid coach in the world. it is sitting right now in my dryer because i washed it last night thinking it might shrink - even though i knew the tag said "preshrunk" so i will be wearing the coach polo they gave me today that i may never wear again, we'll see. 

also, baby is doing good. right now i feel pretty tired and my stomach is stretching or something, i can feel a tightness in my sides. i also may have eaten too fast at dinner. we took a photo with just the girl students and i made everyone stand side-ways! it was really funny.  

so that is all for now, have a great day - Bible reading update, Jesus just entered jerusalem for passover, and aaron (moses' bro) just died in the wilderness.
