To This Day

Rachel went to a forensics tournament this past weekend and in a field of 72 entries, her performance of a poem took 5th!  Wow!  The piece is a powerful, viral youtube video on bullying and if you want to see the original, and I highly suggest you do, click here.  I don't have a recording of Rachel's performance, but, I can tell you that when she did it for a family friend, just to practice, Rachel had our friend in tears.  Way to go, Rachel!
This is a blurry picture, but, Rachel is the pretty blonde on the close end.  These kids are the six finalists.  Two are from Cabot High School, Rachel is the youngest, as a sophomore.

1 screams from the fans...:

Um... Tina? I just checked your blog for the first time in -- well, lets not embarrass myself...

but it seems as though someone hacked your blog and uploaded a bunch of pictures of their teenagers. Where are all the pix of YOUR kids?

Dang, I'm old!
