Day Nine -- Finishing Up the Competition
We won our final match this morning at 9:45am, finishing with a 5-5 record, ranked 54th out of 100 teams in our division. We were hopeful, but not expecting, to be chosen by one of the top 8 teams into an alliance to go on to quarterfinals. We were not picked so our competition was over by 11:00 today.
We are grateful for our relationships with these outstanding people. We're all a bit wiped out after the last few days-- lots of noise, crowds, and not much down time. Our family has been away from home for over a week and we operate best in our routine. I, for one, am weary of keeping track of people. Our children and all the kids that tagged along with us on our adventures were very well behaved, but even still I was constantly checking to make sure we had everyone. I want my fenced backyard! Looking forward to many hours in the car over the next couple of days where everyone will sit and have some time to decompress.
