23: (Your Text Here) | Sarah and Brianna were both part of Emmorton's 10U Travel Softball program during the summer of 2009. The team wasn't well-coached, and therefore didn't have a very successful season. However, it was a great introduction to competitive softball for the girls. They both had the opportunity to play different positions, and practice their skills. Hopefully, next year will be better.
24: Over July 4th weekend, Rhonda's childhood friend, Skye, flew from her home in Idaho, and drove up to Vermont with Kent and Rhonda. They visited their old house in Mount Holly, climbed the 'big rocks' by the highway, and visited their school in Belmont. After staying overnight in Burlington, they went to their old house and school in Barre before returning home. Both areas have not changed, and were extremely dilapidated. The journey made Rhonda realize how far she and Kent have come, not just in distance, but in lifestyle. She's always wanted to return there and was grateful to have the opportunity to take the trip with Kent and Skye so they could reminisce together. | July 2009

This year's feat took place at Friendship Park in Forest Hill on October 31st. It started to rain right after the 'serious' pose so we did a silly shot which is now a family favorite. We are just better at being silly than being serious.
