    Forgot to mention that David won the 2009 Regionals AS WELL, talented kid :)

    Also, Grace is actually a Senior this year so they will be competing in two divisions this year. Regardless, I'm really happy for them as this is a really cool accomplishment! Great job, Arnolds. You always give the Zhengs a run for their money. See you guys in Indy! :heart:

    Thank you all so much. We have been keeping this rather quiet until the official release date of the book which is today. We actually did the photo shoot for the picture in the book at worlds last year in San Diego. They contacted us all the way back in June.

    Our time playing together as a family has been amazing, and we never expected to make so many great friends over the years.

    Special thanks to Rushan and Aaron. You guys are great.

    Hah, it's really awesome Guinness included something like this. The inclusion is kind of a nice nod to Pokemon and it couldn't have happened to more deserving people, heck of a run they've had so far!
