200th POST!!!! WOO-HOO

We have been missing in action!!!

Our denomination's National Convention was this week in Charleston, West Virginia and that's where we have been.

If you remember from this post, Trevor and Shelby were in the NYC competitions. We left on Sunday and came back yesterday. The kids did awesome. Trevor's drama group won 2nd place and Shelby's trio won 1st place!! Shelby didn't place in her solo competition but she was okay with that and wants to try again next year.

Here are a few pics from the Convention:

Abby taking a snooze during one of the services. I don't know how she slept like this for over an hour but she did.

We had a great time and we are making plans to attend next year in Cincinnati, OH. Hopefully, the kids will place in District and State Competitions next year so they can compete nationally again. We loved it!!
