The Day After

  I have never been able to figure out what is so draining about Sunday.  It is the second day of your weekend, but when you wake up Monday afternoon you are still tired.  For me it might be the fact you go to church around 1:00 and get back to your house for the night around 9:45.  We normally play some kind of game that requires physical activity, but still I do not understand.  There are other days during the week that I play games that require physical activity other than a thumb with the Xbox controller.  There is just something very special about Sunday. 

  This weekend we had a quiz tournament.  The results were not what we wanted but it was a very good prep for finals.  My team, consisting of Preston and myself, took second to Bismark.  Jared and Anthony took third.  It sort happened just like last tournament.  Minot 1 and Minot 2 played each other the first game, Minot 1 won that game.  Minot 1 played against Bismarck, Bismark were able to hold on and win.  Minot 1 and Minot 2 played each other again, Minot 2 won.  Minot 2 went on to lose to Bismarck who was the undefeated team.  Jared and Preston took 4th and 5th on the all-tournament team, respectively.  I was able to manage to get to 2nd on the all-tournament team.  The quiz tournament was a little bit frustrating because every quiz I had a chance to quiz out but did so only once.  The first quiz I quizzed I got my first five correct and then managed to get me next five incorrect.  The second quiz I quizzed I got eight correct.  The last quiz I quizzed I got my first six correct, got the next one wrong, waited for the two questions I wanted and managed not to hit the buzzer again.  I think that we will be fine going into finals and have a chance to finish where we want to finish.

  My parents got back Saturday night from a trip that they took with the Pearsons down South.  They enjoyed their trip down and, I hope, are happy to be back home.  We enjoyed their time away by sending Jessica away to the farm and playing a lot of Xbox with Preston and Garret and doing a little bit of quizzing, which is fun again.

He is a very fine quizzer and I will enjoy quizzing with him at finals and, hopefully, at nationals.

Grandpa might come out and help with some of the finish work. When the house is all finished we are planning on it being around 3,800.
