Luke got a job working up in Denali. Cool huh?? He drives the shuttles for a rafting company. He drives the rafters to the river, watch make sure they make it ok to certain points, then picks them up when the run is over. He is up there for 5 days a week, then comes home for his two days off. We are missing him greatly! Just before Memorial Day, my car stopped working, so I needed the truck and Luke had it up there. So a friend drove the kids and I up to get the truck. We stopped and had lunch with Luke and walked around for the afternoon. Then we came back home. Our friend Leah went up with us too. She is visiting us from GA. We are going to go camping there in a few weeks. Here are the pictures from Memorial Day.

I am sooooo late with this one, but oh well, life goes on. Luke decided to participate in the school bus road-e-o. This is a school bus driving competition. The drivers are graded on how well they drive and park the buses in different situations, and they had to do a written test. Luke ROCKED it. We spend the day with him, the kids played and loved watching Daddy drive a bus. Luke placed 3rd overall, and got the rookie of the year. He was only 40 pts behind the 1st place. I am soooo proud of my school bus driver!
