March 20, 2004

5:59 PM Just got the results from the Awana Olympics (hat tip to Bob and Joanne Gill):

Following are the results of the Awana Olympics: Sparks – 3rd Place Girls T & T – 1st Place Boys T & T – 3rd Place Girls Club (T&T) was tied for 1st Place and had to do a playoff game in which they took first. They won the whole match by 1 point! Congratulations to all the coaches: Sparks Coaches – Teresa Shattuck & Emil Jirsa Girls Coaches – Erlene Hartman & Sandy Hurt Boys Coaches – Jonathan Spann & Rob Gaskill The whole day was very exciting!

9:06 AM The free book offer has officially closed. I have received far more than 250 requests for copies of “All That You Could Ask or Think.” I wish I had more copies avaiable. We’ve heard from people all over the world—New Zealand, Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa, South Korea, Uganda,Trinidad and Tobago, Canada, Scotland, and from all across the United States: Aiken, SC; Coila, MS; Tuscumbia, AL; Jamestown, ND; Newaygo, MI; Venice, FL; Washburn, ME; Holmes Beach, FL; Ponchatoula, LA; Weatherford, TX, and many, many others. I think we could easily have sent out 400 copies. Special thanks to everyone who contacted me. The book should be available in bookstores in two or three weeks. 9:05 AM First Awana Olympics update: I was on my way to Panera Bread to buy some bagels when I saw our church bus on Harlem Avenue taking the older kids to Lyons Township High School for the Awana Olympics. I’ll post the results on the weblog later today. 9:04 AM It’s the first day of spring in Oak Park and it’s reasonably warm—52 degrees. Could be better but it’s been a lot worse.

Do you have any thoughts or questions about this post?
