Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Today we spent a wonderful fall day watching the Michigan Tech rowing team (with my nephew Peter) as they competed on the Mississippi river. It was an education for me - I've never seen this sport before and we were able to get up close and personal. We hung out with the team afterward and watched them put away the very, very long boats and also all the chili that my sister Mary brought for the team to eat! Peter is the 3rd one from the back on this boat. They won 3rd place in their race and Peter (and all the guys rowing with him) got a medal. Cool. Sure looks like a lot of work! They did look like they all had fun though.
