Back in the Saddle

  David, John, Brian & Bruce: the fab four on wheels together again  Brian, John and David treated me to the best possible ride, which got me back in the saddle again for the first time in 10 months.  Thank you, guys!  It couldn’t have been a better day.  Thank God.  I am so fortunate to be able to ride with you!

4×200 at Tri-District meet  For the fourth year in a row, Jillian will be representing BCS at the State Championships (Tacoma; May 23-24).  This year she is anchoring both the 4×100 and the 4×200.



many splendours  Tulips galore  fresh fields outside Keukhof gardens

Incredible variety of God’s creation.  He must be a God of infinite imagination, for that seems to be what life is all about.  Unending adventure stories and surprising beauty.  How can so many different colors of life and experience emerge from the dust of the earth?

  stop and smell the tulips!  zipping through life  Home of the globe-trotting Haarlem Hobbits?
