So Robie and I sent the kids off to the teen party and we went to the coaches party. While we where on our way to the party's I found out they got 8th place so they were screaming. Within an hour they bailed on the party and went back to the dorm. Then they started calling us to hurry back because Will was not feeling well. So we hurried back only to have them throw us a surprise thank you party. Almost cried. We're really going to miss these jerks.

Competition days are usually pretty long and today was no exception. We arrived early to our competition site so we could grab our props and do some run throughs. The server worked perfectly but we only got one run through before they put us in line. Last night the kids made up a customized reply to the judges signal that they were ready that was clever. They did a fantastic job but the server decided to pick this performance to act up so they failed 2 of the 3 emails and spent too much time trying to recover that they ended up running out of time. They were very disappointed but the fails only cost them 10 points so they are bravely marching on. Not to minimize the point lost it will hurt them a lot, but we are very proud of how they handled it during the performance, they never cracked. We will eat "dinner" soon and get ready for spontaneous in the morning. More photos to come, so long for now.
