"You know the sun's still shining when you close your eyes..."

We're back from Boise, and the long-lost-Jordan-who-was-supposed-to-post-weeks-ago, has returned. :P Sorry about the lack of posts. NHD has made life crazy, but apparently, for good reason. For those of you who don't know, the State competition was a success. Joel, Isaac and I placed first in our division (Senior Group Performance), which was wholly unexpected. Above and beyond that, we were utterly baffled to receive the Governor’s award, given to "the best of the best" in the State of Idaho, without dividing by age, category or number of participant. That was an immense blessing!

More to come over the next few days; the trip, the competition, the bull-roundup outside our hotel and more. :P Stay tuned!

For now, I leave you with a slide-show, AJ and I pulled together (picture taken in December). Enjoy!

More pictures from IHD avalible here.

Congratulations! How exciting. Joel told me about the State competition, and I was thinking about you.

I'm glad that you were able to make it to the Rebelution conference again. It sounds like it was incredible. Did you bring anyone else from Idaho with you?

Oops. Correction: Joel told me about the competition before State, not State. Wonderful job! Your costumes were very nice.
