Independence Day 2009
the high temperature for the 4th of July was 47 degrees!
But it was still a great day for sno-cones.
and lip-syncing contests.
Ben and his friend Max brought down the house with a hilarious, first place winning, dance/lip-sync number, the likes of which this community has never seen. It truly was awesome, and if my internet connection was a little faster I could download the video. Instead, you must just trust me when I say the white boys got moves!
The 4th of July celebration here was great hometown fun.
The only thing missing was the fireworks, which are reserved for New Years Eve due to lack of summer darkness.
Of course no summer is complete without swimming
and our swimming hole just happens to be part of the Arctic Ocean.
It is huge here.
I played. Ben played. Dave played and helped coach.
The AC Cardinals took second place in the regional tournament!

Oh, and not only has summer come to an end, but so has our time above the arctic circle!
We are on the move again.
And since I know how much you all love my cliff hangers, that's all i'm gonna say about that right now!
