And the competitions continue...

This past weekend, Emelie competed at our area 4-H Horse Judging Competition. It is her first year as a senior and is one of the youngest in her division. She placed second individually, and her team also placed second. This means we will be off to the State Contest on May 1.

Meghan competed (on her birthday, no less) at the Division III Math Pentathlon Tournament. It’s the biggest of all the Math Tournaments will over 400 participants from several states. She made it through the day and was smiling in the end, which is a great victory for that grueling day. We’re proud that she was able to tie the game that she considered her weakest!

As we get reading for all these contests each year, we usually spend an evening watching Facing the Giants. We encourage the children to praise God, win or loose. We want them to do their best and leave the results up to God!


  1. I still haven't seen that movie. That is awesome that she did her best and it paid off...

  2. Good job, Stumpf girls! :) Love that movie!!!
