I'm a Proud Mother of National Champions!!!


The day after I arrived in South Dakota, my old laptop bit the dust. I've been dying to write about the shoot and post pictures, but alas I couldn't. Right now I'm writing from the public library in Deadwood and only have a few minutes.

I promise to gush about the trip upon my return Sunday night or Monday morning. In the meantime, I must share that all the Michigan kids did great! Our muzzleloading team (of which Teen Son and Teen Daughter One are members) placed fifth for their event on Tuesday, third on Thursday, and fourth overall.

Teen Son blew everyone away with his silver medal win as an individual on Tuesday, ninth place on Wed. (the whole team suffered that day due to a rule change that we were not informed about in advance), and a GOLD medal for his performance on Thursday!!! I don't know where he placed overall as there was a scoring glitch -- we'll be informed later -- but we assume it'll be fourth or fifth place.

I'm so proud of the kids. It's been an outstanding experience for all of us! I've got to run . . .
