Taking a break from domestic bliss and wedding-planning topics today. We are all so thrilled for Emma and her Paralympic adventure! The latest news: in their final race before Beijing, her team competed in Canada last weekend. From what I hear it was a breathtaking race...down to the last one-hundredth of a second. The US team earned the gold, and seeing Emma in this photo (far right) in all her red, white, and blue USA Rowing gear made me a teary-eyed and very proud big sister. LOVE YOU EM! And I also love those two cute kids with her in the second photo, my other little sibs Anna and Mike.
Though it won't be televised stateside (oh, the injustice!), Emma races in China on Sept. 9 and 10. We think it will be streamed on the Web. Stay tuned.
