Happy Belated 13th Birthday to Matt on Monday who got to have swan soup on his birthday after all. He was a little worried Dad wouldn't come through but in a last ditch effort hunting trip at 9 pm the night before Matt's big day, the swan was in hand and soon to be in pot! I tried some at his birthday party, it was delicious. Thanks Tim and Diane! It was a pretty exciting birthday for Matt too, because his day was announced to the whole state on the nightly Channel 2 News thanks to Anchor Megan Baldino! Of course as luck would have it none of our satellites where pulling in Channel 2 with only 20 minutes until show time! The whole village was awaiting what Megan would say about us after her stay this weekend. We did find that Jim and Steph's satellite worked so about 20 of us crowded in to catch our 15 minutes of fame. The name of Quinhagak was thrown around left and right through the whole newscast, it was great! Also Quinhagak was officially put on the map!!! The weather map that is, at least for Monday! We chuckled knowing most of Alaska was wondering what is the deal with this 'Quinhagak' place???? At the end Megan again told Matt happy birthday, showed pics of prom and congratulated the graduates, Terrilyn and Clarissa and even managed to sneak in a wink for John Teddy at his request;) We were all pretty thrilled. Thanks Megan:)
Tuesday Steph had the whole school building human pyramids, throwing marshmallows, shooting 3 pointers, and trying desperately to put on frozen t-shirts. What a hilariously fun time! Everyone laughed until their sides hurt. Thanks Steph.
Waiting in line.
