Swimming in friends

One of the senior students who has inspired and helped William for years is Rogers Gossett. After the addition of their first child, (Holland) his wife (Jane) and I have become good friends. They shared their great pool with our family this summer. Here are a few photos to remind us of the joy of friends...

Mini Kendo camp

Actually it was just another normal week of Kendo, but William had a good friend (Galen) stay with us for the entire week. It was wonderful. He's a great kid and I wish he'd rubbed off on William some more. Fortunately Max was around to give Galen some more mature time. We went swimming twice, the zoo, teen night once or twice, the civil rights museum and Pink Palace IMAX.

2008 US Kendo Championships Las Vegas

Here are some of the photos I took with William's new (small) camera. Thank you to everyone who supported him on this journey, gave him jobs, money, advice and training. He has a long way to go until next championships in 3 years, but he is determined to return and improve his performance.
