summer soccer

emma's soccer team finished second in the first soccer tournament of the season. they beat the #9 team in the state and lost in the finals 3-0 to the #4 ranked team in georgia. her team is newly formed and is currently ranked #15 in the state but that should change based on their recent play. oh yeah, emma had a hat trick in the third game!

Here are some pictures from my adventures in scotland.

grounded in the uk

the eyjafjallajoekull volcano in iceland has me stranded in dundee, scotland.

i was scheduled to return to the states on friday, april 16th however, that flight was canceled. hoping to make it home by thursday, april 22nd but based upon the ash cloud's position and the high pressure weather system over europe, that flight might be canceled as well.
