Quiz Tournament

We have had yet another quiz tournament. This time we had only one team. The team consisted of Jared, Jonathan, Preston, Garret, and Clarissa. There were three teams at the tournament and we were able to draw number three. This meant we got a bye, then we beat Bismarck. Bismarck went to the losers bracket came back and played us again and we beat them. We had three quizzers on the all-tournament team Jared had 95 ppq, Jonathan had 72.5 ppq, and Preston had 10ppq. The next tournament is June 20 in Minot

Trip to Bismarck

Monday we took our monthly trip to Bismarck. We went to a store called TJMax otherwise known as boys nightmare. While we were there a lady came over to Jared and asked him if he knew what this logo was (the logo at the top), Jared replied by saying that it was the Twins. The lady said that is what I thought it was and went back to her shopping. A couple of minutes later her friend came back and asked us if one of us was six feet tall, we told her Jared was. The lady wanted Jared to be a model for her so she could try some shorts up to him. Jared was happy that she did not make him go try them on for her.

In Your Face!

Every once in a while you hear about people that are just "in your face" people. Well Sunday what Jared was having to deal with was not a "in your face" person, but an "in your face" pie. They had a bid on who was going to throw the pie in his face. An elderly couple ended up winning the bid and gave Jessica the chance to throw the pie in Jared's face. When it was time for her to do it she chickened out because she did not want to hurt her nice older brother. They had to search for someone to throw the pie now. Their search ended with Jonathan who willingly but heart brokenly threw the pie into Jared's face. Before he threw the pie he displayed his sorrow by saying that "there was no one else to throw the pie". Here are a couple of pictures...
