I’ve had my hands full all week, so this is the first chance I’ve had to brag on my kids, but I am pleased to report that last Saturday, for the second year in a row, we brought home a first-place ribbon for photojournalism and a third-place ribbon for sportswriting from the New Mexico state student journalism competition.
We found time to have a little fun after the competition ended. First, we stopped at Cake Fetish in Albuquerque:
It was great to see a couple of my students pick up statewide honors, but the real prize for me was the chance to spend the day road-tripping with them. They can be noisy and goofy and over the top sometimes, but they are truly great kids, and I have an awful lot of fun with them.
