Recital and Uncle Adam

Katelyn has been working on the song "Salsa Kid" for months and finally performed it at her recital today. She did a fantastic job! To see her performance, click here

Yesterday we got to see a very tired, yet still energetic Uncle Adam in NYC. Adam is working for a company that hosts 200 mile relay races (Ragnar). Each team in the race has 12 runners who each take 3-8 mile stretches to run. The fastest team ran it in 18 hours and 50 minutes. The slowest teams took almost 35 hours. During the run, most of the runners get very little sleep. Although the runners get little sleep, those who staff the event get even less. Adam had only gotten 6 hours and 15 minutes of sleep since Wednesday (3 hours Wednesday, 3 hours Thursday, 15 minutes Friday). Today he had hoped to come to Church with us, but I think he was a little surprised when he woke up after 12 hours of sleep still tired. So, he decided to spend the remaining part of the day in NYC resting. We look forward to seeing him on Tuesday when he's done with work.

  1. Wow, Katelyn, that was awesome! You have an amazing talent on that piano. Wish we could have been there to see it in person. Next time we see you, hopefully you can play a song for us. Love you. Aunt Shelley
