First Fencing Tournament
Daniel competed in his first fencing tournament this weekend. He did quite well for his first tournament, even though he lost most of his matches, it was usually only by one point. His coach thought that was quite impressive, since most first time fencers don't score many points. Most the kids he fenced had been competing for a year or two. We're excited to see his progress in the next few tournaments.
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
