It's Picture Day!
Samantha's Senior pictures will be done by a professional, but due to
scheduling difficulties she couldn't get them done for the yearbook, so she
consented to have her not-very-experienced-with-portraits father do the yearbook
picture. We got very lucky with the light.
This past spring, Samantha was nominated to be one of the drum majors in her
school band, and, after a series of interviews, was selected as one of the four
drum majors (the band has 150 members, so they need to have four).
Here are a few selected photos:
During a federally-mandated emergency preparedness review this fall, we discovered to our chagrin that we
were not adequately prepared in the feline area (ref. FM 4-01.30:7-14), so we have added an emergency
backup cat to our household (FEMA K-18-35 designation "Cleo").
Other selected narratives
In August we spent some time with Kim's father and family, and I wrote up
some of the experiences.
- Tour de
A challenging ride that Eric did while in Spain.
Eric finally gets a chance to take on the "Classic" route. Does he suffer?

More Lacrosse Pictures
To be more specific, 113 pictures of Samantha playing lacrosse this past
spring. And one picture of her and her mother with the championship trophy.
