Patrick Dempsey, the star from the hit TV show Gray's Anatomy, is up at Black Mountain today. He has an annual bike and run fundraiser for cancer, and the mountain sponsors a team. Patrick grew up 20 miles from here in Buckfield. Here at the house, William is watching the TV show Lost and Soenke is gearing up to visit Katriel's (Brazil) home to make schnitzel. Alex, who has been living with us of the past 3 weeks, is down at his girlfriend's home. Bailey and I just got off the mountain in the backyard after a morning work session behind the computer. Bailey edits well. Here are some photos from the past few days. The kids had a snow day--more like a snow-sleet-rain day--on Wednesday, so it was a laid-back week.
