Katie Knott in Alaska!

Katie Knott went to Alaska (July 3-18) to visit Julie Olson and Mike Blair. While Katie was at Julie's, Matt Knott (her brother) texted her that he was flying into Kenai, Alaska to help with a fire there. They were all able to see Matt the next morning as Julie and Mike and were dropping Katie in Kenai to pick up a car for the rest of her trip.

Bambi Day Five!

How quickly things change. At 10:00 am, Brenden emailed me asking how the weather was. I replied that it was sunny and warm, which it was. Then around 3:30 - the rain came. By 4:30 it was sunny again. It was also the day that my cousin, Roger Wolden came to visit.
