Totally non-writing related, but I took students to art competition and wow, what a day. Overall, there were 708 entries, but probably only 560 or so showed up. That's a lot of artwork. I work the war room as it's fondly called. That's where we man the computers and plug in scores. For that many pieces of art, things went fairly smoothly.
As for my students, they did very well. Lots of medals and eight out of my 42 are advancing to state. Whoo Hoo! That's something to crow about.
