I embarked on my first ever road race, running in a 2 mile along the Columbia River in Richland. Sara followed me competing in a ten mile! I was proud of both of our efforts, and fellow family and friends as well. Missy Lind won the 10 mile race for all women. Aaron and Garth ran very nice ten mile races and the Puzeys looked amazing their respective races. I think I like running....a little.

We spent last weekend in Bend, OR attending the wedding of Konnie Zacharias, our friend, former student and daughter of neighbors across the street Tim & Karen. The ceremony was beautiful, as well as the bride and the weather making it a truly great weekend. We met so many wonderful people and spent some quality time with Dawn & Pat Kerrigan. We had a fantastic time.

Last Sunday morning Sara, Ryk, and I packed up our stuff and left my mom's in Auburn, Wa at 3am to travel to Medical Lake, Wa to watch one of our favorite athletes compete... the amazing Missy Lind in the Wunderwoman Sprint Triathlon. She finished close to the top overall amongst hundreds of competitors. She is an inspiration to our whole family and we our very proud of the mighty lil' thing!
Sara and I had the pleasure of attending the Mariners versus the Yankees on August 14th, unfortunately the M's lost the game late but they played well. God Bless Lee Olson for hooking us up with fantastic seats as we were 14 rows behind home plate. Sitting next to us was the newly signed first round draft pick of the M's, Nick Franklin. Nice kid. We enjoyed the up close view of the game and the magic of Safeco Field.

This summer has been action packed for our family as we have been to Seattle/Auburn three... going on four times, Vancouver, BC for a fantastic concert by Clutch, Greece, to a fantastic cabin/camping experience near Lake Roosevelt on the Spokane River (thanks Mercers) and more swim lessons than I care to count. Fun stuff.

Sara and I came Back last Friday from an epic journey to Greece with a group of 22 others from our school and community. The Trip was truly amazing, and tiring as I still wait to return to regular sleeping hours with the ten hour time change.
The country possesses both natural and historic beauty and the people were fantastic as well as the food. Our group behaved as perfect ambassadors for our country as we received many compliments, especially regarding the behavior of our students.
We count our blessings that we had such a rich opportunity and made it home to our son. God is Good.
Love Sara & Ethan
