Now, I know what you’re thinking: EWWW. COOTIES!!! but hear me out. It’s true. I like you, you like me, we’re a semi-creepy homeschool family.
At my first Round Robin, back in the days when I could barely remember the difference between an OI and an OO (don’t even get me started on Expos and Extemp...), I remember overhearing a mom (and no, I wasn’t dropping no eaves. +1 LOTR) tell another woman that these kids are each other’s biggest fans. I thought, that’s weird. Don’t they know they’re competing against each other? Well, turns out most of the kids are wayy nicer and less competitive than I am, because they really are each other’s biggest fans. They always support each other, watch each other’s sometimes-boring speeches, scream real loud at breaks, and give SO MANY HUGS AND/OR HANDSHAKES THAT YOU THINK YOU MIGHT DIE. But yea. It’s great.
