What a difference a week makes. Last week I received an email from our university's cycling team: Would we Armstrongs consider housing the officials for the upcoming K-State Collegiate races? This is something that we have enjoyed doing on an annual basis, either housing the race officials (read: mature adults) or one of the out-of-state cycling teams (read: really, really fun college kids!). I consulted that Spouse o' Mine, and was not surprised when he suggested we sit out this year. We have a busy week coming up, and this would be "just one more thing". And so I sent our regrets.
This morning, I got a call from that Spouse o' Mine from his office. The K-State cycling team was in real need of more homestays; he thought maybe we should go ahead and open our home. I was all for it - I love these weekends! And so I sent an email and...
We are now housing the Iowa State University cycling team - ten cyclists.
It's gonna be a fun, fun weekend!
