These pictures were taken yesterday when the Rabbit River was about at its crest. It has dropped about 6 inches overnight. The forecast looks good, with no significant rain or snow in the next week. This level is about 2 feet lower than the crest last year.
Emily's 6th Grade basketball team won the last two tournaments they were in. Last weekend the girls won their first game 52-5. The week before, in the championship game we were losing 0-6 at halftime and came back to win 10-8. Emily is very good at defense. She gets really intense! You can see a little of that in the last picture. The girls had a lot of fun and really improved over the season.
Congratulations on 20 years in the Navy, Pat! We are so proud of your service to our country. Your retirement celebration in sunny San Diego was great. We had a wonderful time celebrating with all the relatives. It was a great reunion!
We went skiing last weekend at Wild Mountain with Janet, Joan and Wade for Maddie and Wes's birthday. They just turned five. We used the gift certificate that the Smiths gave us a year ago for Christmas. Thanks alot, we had a great time. We actually tried to use it last year, but Sam got sick on the way skiing so we did not use it because he was so bummed about not being able to go. The weather was perfect, low 30s and very little wind.
