The Amazing Race Canada - We Entered!

It is official: we have entered the Amazing Race Canada!

Talk about last minute (it's due tomorrow)!  From Sam's perspective, it's early.

Surprisingly, it was a fairly simple process (except for the part about summarizing your life and relationship into 3 minutes):

  1. Cut a hole in a box.
  2. Write a script.  (...err...I mean 'be spontaneous')
  3. Review it.  
  4. Memorize it (we cheated with the ipad running DV Prompter.  It was just like reading from a teleprompter on TV!).
  5. Put on make-up for the first time since....?
  6. Find a way to keep two little girls quiet while you do a video (1 nap + 1 snack)
  7. Film it with a Canon 60D.
  8. Splice in some photos and clips of the girls.
  9. Add music?  Maybe's distracting.
  10. Edit it.  Windows Movie Maker wasn't good enough.  We used VideoPad Editor on a free trial which was AMAZING!
  11. Complete the online application and post it all over the place.
  12. And that's the way you do it.

As they say in Australia, 'fingers and toes'!
