I’ll write more about this later because I’m stuck in a Motel 8 without working wifi for my iPad and no computer access. So I’m working off my phone and I’m exhausted. It was day one of a speech tournament almost three hours from home. The first tournament for our team. I’m thankful we made it here safely. I’m thankful the five teenage girls are still getting along. And despite the horrible paint job (baby blue, pale yellow and orange??) I’m grateful to have my own room. It has actually been a good day.
