This is a really nice couple of minutes of basketball by the Storm Hawks. Luke (#34) does a great job of guarding the inbounds passer. He gets down the court quickly after a steal by Casey (#1). Luke scores a layup after catching an excellent pass from Casey. Later, Luke rebounds and throws a strong outlet to Casey. Led by Orlo (#3), the Storm Hawks pound the offensive boards with Luke sticking in a rebound at the end.
Michelle and Luke built a snowman in our front yard during another snowy day. We’ve been snowed in for almost a week. During that time, we walked to the grocery store once and went another time with a neighbor who had chains and front wheel drive. When it snows in Seattle, it usually melts by the next day so the City’s snow removal equipment is only used on the main streets. This wasn’t a good year for last minute Christmas shoppers. Looks like I’ll be cutting pictures out of a catalog to wrap up.
Luke had fun this morning riding our neighbor’s sled. After much practice, he got pretty good at steering even though he almost hit me and then Ben (who used to ride the same sled in the 1960s) in this video clip.
Luke and Katy carve pumpkins that will be displayed on the front porch.
