Allow me a proud Mama moment. The Murrah High School Quiz Bowl team took second place today in a tournament organized at Madison Central. Here are the team members posing with their coach, Andrew Yoder, a Murrah math teacher, holding the trophy. My son, G, is on the left. I was awed at these kids’ knowledge and poise under pressure. I sat and quilted and bit my tongue when they missed the occasional one that I knew. In a lightning round about banned books, they didn’t know the Judy Blume title banned for its discussion of breasts, bras, and crises of faith. Anybody remember that one? (See, I did tie it in with children’s books.)
I saw the fine cut of the book trailer for Growing Patterns today. I really like it and I think you will, too. Just some tweaking to do and we’ll be ready to go live. I can’t wait.
