Last Friday Shane participated in the Wisconsin State Geography Bee in Madison, but he almost didn't. After studying for weeks and hoping to make it into the top five (and having a good shot at it) he had some pretty big obstacles to overcome.
We left at 5 AM--not much sleep.
Our vehicle broke down at 7:30 AM--panic at how to get there.
We raced all over Westfield looking for a ride south--energy exerted on an empty stomach.
We received help in a way we never would have imagined--shock and disbelief.
We arrived late and out of breath--adrenalin being overproduced.
This was not the way to go into the bee and Shane stumbled on his first question eventually leaving him out of the final round.
However, the amazing solution to our problem was reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and it's one we'll never forget.
