Today, one of our speech team members had to leave district speech early because of a previous obligation, but he made finals, so he left in a rush and accidentally abandoned his childhood Bob the Builder blanket on the speech van. The two remaining teammates and I, having nothing better to do with our copious free time between finals and awards, naturally, decided that a photo essay, featuring said blanket was in order. We chose the hashtag #NatesBlankie and we went to town on Instagram.
Congrats to Nate and Christy for making State. I couldn’t be more proud of you two! You are both so hard on yourselves, but that’s part of what makes you good at what you do. I also want to say congrats to the entire #vikespeech team! I am so proud of you. As a first-year coach, I could not have asked for a better group to lead me! Love you all! Special shout out to Grace who put in more hours than any other member–in prep, in reworking, in reflection. You are laying the foundation for your future speech career!
And now on to the aforementioned photo essay:

Speech meet? What speech meet? Raymond who? Central what?
Good thing we had Nate’s Blankie so we could go camping while we waited.

We weren’t sure if Nate finaled, since there doesn’t appear to be a record of Entertainment finals … very mysterious …

This was a close call. Don’t worry, Nate: Bob the Builder is safe.
