You're kidding! No, we're kidding!

Yes we are kidding! (That is, in goat standards...) We came back from the speech tournament last week and found that on Monday (the 16th) our goat Fiddle gave us two little kids. So all of us kids ran out of the house in excitement to see the kids! They are so cute. We were so thankful that they were not born while we were gone! Enjoy the pictures!

Since it was around Purim we named the two little does Vashti (the multi colored one) and Esther (the brown one).

When Judah holds the baby goats he likes to say: "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Baby goat!"

All the kids.
Mommy with Esther.
Just a quick note: The rest of the NCFCA tournament pictures will be coming soon! We have not forgotten! But just to keep you hanging we will have pictures of us doing our speeches and some speech bloopers too.
So stayed tuned!

Off to the Speech Tournament...!

Whew! That's all I can say after filling out applications, counting added words, and then going to bed at 11:45 PM last night (note from Shiloh: She went to bed this morning at 12:00 AM) ... it's been a whirlwind! Let me fill you in. Just less then a week ago we found out that this was the ONLY NCFCA speech tournament we would be able to attend. So we flew into a frenzy of practicing speeches, making boards, and copying off three speeches! Well now we're all ready to go! Make sure to check back to see our "Before and During the Tournament" pictures! Oh... and we will also post some travel shots. (After all... what's a blog with no pictures?!)

Please pray that everything will run smoothly here at home (pregnant does!) and at the tournament.
Just so you know here's what we are speaking on...

~Shiloh: Duo Interpretation (Treasures of the Snow, by: Patricia St. John) and Impromptu.
~Bethany: Duo Interpretation (with Shiloh) and Dramatic Interpretation (Evidence Not Seen, by Darlene Deibler Rose).
~Jordan: Expository (Basic Economics).
Special thanks to all of you who have watched and critiqued our speeches. We appreciate it!
