A couple photos...








It has been too long since I posted, and my posting specialist is at school... I can't remember how to arrange the pictures and comments, so they will be in random order. We went to the range for the evening of the 15th wish Denise a happy birthday. We were able to watch as Laurie and Denise came with the dogs down the last bit of Keenen road. It is an awesome thing to watch! Once inside and warmed up, we had birthday cake and a visit. Brian tussled with Tristan; little causins played together; Kathryn enjoyed different toys; and Sarah entertained us. ...Eric is close to securing/landing a job. He successfully completed the testing and the interview stages. He still has to pass his background and psych portions. (These sound simple, but neither is. For example, not only does he need to fill out a bajillion pages of detailed questions, but he also has to handwrite a biography. Handwritten so the writing can be analyzed.) When asking others in the field what to wear for his interview, the answer was definately a suit. So, here he is, all spiffy in his new suit. ....The remaining pictures are from a progressive dinner we had as a fundraiser for the congregation here. Our house was the final one, where people came for dessert and entertainment. We had chocolate roll, searved individually to 46 people. The entertainment - planned by others on the committee - included winter trivia. Mother & Isa and Pete are pictured here deep in thought on the trivia.

Wright County. Hopefully within a couple weeks he will know. If he does get on, he goes through field training and a year of probation. He won't relax until the end of that year!

If he gets on, his insurance kicks in the first of the next month which will take care of one big stressor.

Everyone keep your fingers crossed.
