The Jeubs are super-duper busy this weekend. Cynthia, Lydia and Isaiah are all competing at the final regional qualifying tournament, and Micah will be attending as an 11-year-old timer (competitive age begins at 12). The kids will be staying with friends in Denver for the event, while I’ll be commuting to and fro. Cynthia has two events and debate to qualify in, and Isaiah has his Humorous Interpretation. Say a prayer for them!
Would you like to come judge at this tournament? I spoke with the judges’ coordinator this morning (she is also the events coordinator for Training Minds Ministry) and she said they were short 50 judges. Hard to believe, really, because the hospitality for volunteer judges is phenomenal–fantastic food diced up by homeschool moms–and the entertainment is worth it. The speeches and debates are better than you will ever see. If interested, visit rmc.homeschooldebate.net and click on the “Judge Registration” tab at the top. Though this is a 3-day event, you need only select the rounds you are able to make.
By the way, little Zechariah is doing great! He slept through the night Saturday night (a blessing from heaven!), but was sort of restless last night. Maybe it had something to do with his circumcision yesterday.
We usually have a doctor do circumcisions, but this time we connected with a Jewish Rabbi from Denver. He is quite the character! Funny and quick with a joke, he had the circumcision finished in a few minutes, and he filled in the family with the history of the surgical procedure. Call us nutty for thinking so, but it was a great experience.
No, we will not post pictures.
