Brad is steadily getting everything together. His crew is pretty well set and he sent off a couple of boxes of "stuff" this week to Hawaii.
Otherwise, life is the usual crazy that it is at the end of the school year. The kids will have their last day of school on the 17th (the day before Brad flies out). In the meantime, next weekend we have our annual event at Port Madison called Potlatch. This year, there is a new twist which is Brad and I will be presiding over the festivities as the Chief and Queen. Needless to say, this was an obligations that existed long before the whole boat buying adventure came upon us. On top of that, it was 39 years ago that my parents presided over the same event the summer before I was born. They had to borrow other people's kids to be their papooses. Anyway, as is the tradition, this event is always held on Father's Day weekend. My mom's birthday is June 15th which sometimes falls on Father's Day and this is one of those years. It seemed like a natural choice, given all the convening pieces that my parents come with us. So, for the first time in quite a few years, Jack and Ellie will be hopping on sailboat and heading to Port Madison for a jam-packed, fun-filled weekend. It should be a hoot!
