You may recall from a previous post that GothGirl’s team qualified for the State Finals in the Team Quest Academic Challenge. Today was the final event and it was held 3 hours south of us in Chester, IL (home of Popeye!). There were events in Engineering, Creativity, Music, Math, Trivia, Teamwork, etc. Parents can really only watch from afar, but I snapped a few photos throughout the day. Keep in mind that the event was held in various outbuildings at a country orchard, so the lighting was not very good. There were 18 teams at the event and sadly, GothGirls' team did not make the top 5. I wanted to get a team photo at the end, but she was too sad. Despite not placing, we are VERY proud of her accomplishments. We love, Sweetie and you will always be our #1.
