I had practice at noon, which Simon Shepherd attended again and gave us some more ideas. Throughout the next week we had practice daily.


Madison, WI

I'm going to buy an Airstream trailer and travel the us., tomorrow, if they sell it to me for under 3000. they think I'll pay only 2000, so hopefully they go for it.


We were surprised by Rachel's birth Mom and Grandparents showing up early in Decorah for Rachel's recital. They met me at Americana Grill for dinner, and then Rachel showed up and we surprised her too. We went to bed early to get extra sleep for my class and Rachel's recital.


We spent the evening at home, Rachel planted our garden and I installed the Bertazonni gas cooktop and the Viking warming drawer into the new granite island. This involved hooking up the gas and wiring the electrics in the island. The U-Line under-counter fridge was already running from last night. We hooked the dishwasher up to the drain and faucets to do another load of dishes, before we start installing that counter-top and sink with the dishwasher tomorrow.
