If any of you were eagerly checking my blog each day for news regarding Jamestown, then I suppose you were disappointed. In reality, we had a great time! However, we were instructed that we could not use the internet at all in the treasure hunt. Whether I could have blogged or not, I'm not sure, but I used that as the excuse to put the blogging on hold for a week. I also had very little time to get on the PC anyway as the days were taken up in hunting for the treasure, and the evenings passed quickly trying to squeeze in here and there a Vision Forum event (or doing laundry! :-) )
I want to devote this space to publically thank Vision Forum and Doug Phillips for the enormous amount of time and effort they and he have put into this endeavor. We will never forget the experience we had searching for the gold, and discovering the providential Hand of God as our true National Treasure along the way. We were able to stay in the hunt until Friday morning, when we were eliminated, leaving only three finalists. My congratulations go out to the Thomas family for winning the treasure, and to all the other finalists who made it to Jamestown for the hunt.
We learned so much history last week. It was an excellent cap to our 7 months of study on Jamestown and Virginia history.
So, thank you Mr. Phillips. Thank you Vision Forum. You are truly a blessing to our family, and to this country.
