Awesome Game

Last night, my son and I traveled to Bismarck to watch my nephew Tyler play high school football. It was fun, saw a few people we knew from my hometown, saw my sister and family from Grand Forks (her son was the one playing) my brother in law and boys from Bismarck were also there. As well as my parents. (we drove them there)
The game was awesome. Well, the last minute of the game was awesome. Grand Forks was behind 14-0 throughout the whole game, til the last minute. They scored 2 touchdowns, as well as got the extra points in the LAST minute to win the game!!! Grand Forks 15-Bismarck 14. In the midst of the game 2 of the GF players went by ambulance to the ER. I was the only one in the Grand Forks section who knew where the hospital was, so I drove one of the Dad's to the ER to be with his son. It was a crazy night. Both boys are doing well and back in Grand Forks.
Today I met with a family for Make a Wish. (I am a volunteer for Make a Wish) It was fun, really enjoyed visiting with them. Their son is adorable, and was so happy to see us!! They live in an Extreme Makeover house, so we got to see the house first hand, which was very cool.
Thats all for tonight. I have one messy house to clean, so I better get to it before my son gets home. Good night!!

What an exciting life you lead!Leading the way to ER's, participating in the Make a Wish Foundation, seeing an Extreme Home Makeover I live vicariously through you? haha

Well, I finally posted a coupla pics on my site...I need help, though. Check it out and see if you can offer me some advice. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the tips about posting pics. I wondered if positioning them would have to be done that way, but I thought surely there was an easier way! Oh well, I guess (like you said) it will get easier with practice. In the meantime, you are absolutely right about it being a pain in the "you-know-what!" ha
