Busting My Buttons

I know, it's been a while - no apologies, just a huge post that's coming - but in the meantime I would like to share the really good news we are party to.
One of the many things Tarzan and I do is coach the Academic Decathlon team at his school. Well, he's the coach. *I* am the coach's wife, provider of the cookie bribes and chauffeur. I help with speeches, practice interviews, offer support, encouragement, scoldings and make a lot of cookies.
We were a little disappointed after the last day of competition and the team was kind of apathetic about the awards ceremony tonight. We hosted dinner at our house and then went down to the convention center.
It was awesome.
Three medals.
Two perfect scores.
Most improved school in our district:
To put the whole event in perspective; the top five scores in our school district were the top five scores in the entire country. It is a smart group we compete against.

This is me and I am so proud of the team.
