I just returned from Keller, TX, where some of our kids competed in speech and debate. We faired quite well and brought home a handful of awards plus (more importantly) a heart full of memories.
But our New Year’s Resolution to blog every day has been compromised greatly! We apologize. We’ll be back at it very soon, and with gusto. I can’t tell you how many good families we run into who pour their hearts out about their desire to Love Another Child. If anything, we gain material when we listen to testimonies — real, genuine stories — on the road.
One of our to-do items for tournaments is to recruit community judges. There is a tournament this weekend in Denver, Colorado! The Rocky Mountain Classic will put on a tremendous speech and debate tournament, and we need community judges to help keep the rounds rolling. No experience is needed, and if you are a homeschool parent, bring your kids along. They’ll see their peers in action and will likely go home a believer in getting involved.
Click through this website: https://rmc2011.homeschooldebate.net/judges. The registration process and tournament information is pretty self-explanatory.
Really, I believe every homeschooler in the country should be doing speech and debate. If you can make it, flag me down. You’ll most likely see a Jeub kid — suited up and ready to compete — in the crowd!
