Hey, Judy, guess what?!? Our girls made it to the finals at the National History Day competition! Many thanks to you and Steve for your generosity of time and spirit. There is a post on Facebook of the girls final performance. Don't know whether this will work, but if it doesn't, you can p/m me and I'll get it to you: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10154284132130593

For those who don't know, National History Day (About (http://www.nhd.org/About.htm)) is an annual historical research competition involving over 500,000 students from every state and a number of US Military and International Schools around the world. Students must advance through both regional and state competitions in order to be invited to the national competition at the University of Maryland in College Park. DD#10 and her BFF have worked together for 3 years in a row and I couldn't be prouder of them.

Oh - So happy to hear she & her BFF qualified for the finals! I'm sure the questions we answered were only a small part of their presentation. We were happy to contribute out thoughts about that period of history. It takes hard work to compile all the answers they must have gotten and then present them in a clear manner.

Hope the photo shows the staging and scenery they worked so hard on. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to open the link.

Funny, somehow I didn't realize I could be a part of history ... it's making me feel a bit old-ish. lol
