Good night moon

Tonight the moon is at perigee. The closest it will be to earth for the next 18 years - give or take. So I went out with the camera and telescope and took this picture. When it was close to the horizon it looked huge! Good night moon.

Goodbye Brittany!

Since January 3rd we've had Brittany living with us. She was doing a Physical Therapy rotation at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital near us and needed a place to live. Brittany is best friends with a girl whose boyfriend is from our neighborhood and when they heard that she is a member of the LDS church they put her in contact with us. We've had such a wonderful time having her here. She fit into our family and our schedule seamlessly. We feel like she's our adopted daughter. So we were all sad to see her leave here on the 12th of March when she finished her rotation. She's moving on to Lake Placid where she will train for 2-1/2 months and then she'll graduate as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

While Brittany was here we all had an opportunity to go to the Boston temple together. It's one of the few pictures we have of her. I guess January and February aren't big picture taking months.

Goodbye Brittany, and good luck!
