Another page for Emily's academic team album. Working my way towards getting up the courage to scrap the state championship. Wink

The last week of practice before State was very intense. It started on Sunday morning when the South Bend Tribune came out with a front-page story about the Regionals Competition. Our phones started ringing very early and rang all day long with everyone telling us that Emily was in the paper. It was so fun to celebrate their Regionals win but there was also no mistaking the pressure that was on them for State. The last Sunday practice was very intense with Mr. De Kever leading the team around his yard and giving them a tour of all the trees he has planted in honor of his past State Championships. It ended with Emily barely holding it together and then sobbing the entire way home. And then five days of practice - each with some special significance like the cookies from Mr. De Kever’s mother and the ice cream from his father. It was a big, big week filled with a lot of hope and anticipation.
