National Bible Bee 2009

Melody did very well at the National Bible Bee! Although she did not place in the top 20, she was grateful for the opportunity to memorize God's word in a focused way.

Here are a few pictures from the competition:

At the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue - where the Bible Bee was held and where all the contestants were required to stay

The oral rounds are finally done! We can relax!


Among the giants in the land

Much time was spent at the "roundtable" - mostly waiting!


The Alessios were thrilled to see Lucy place in the top 20.

Thursday - Healthcare protest

Today went to the Capitol to protest along with thousands of other upset citizens. It was great to hear Michelle Bachmann, Mark Levin and other conservatives voice their strong opposition to this outrageous bill.
Here are some pics from the protest:






Someone from the New Republic interviewed Dad






We ran into some people from the Bible Bee there!

Bryson for President!!!

Long lines going into the Congressional office buildings....

It was a lot of fun!
