After we got it all planted, it started raining and rained all afternoon! I think it washed some of the dirt off the tops of the rows and and left some seeds exposed!

Baby had to supervise the planting.
It rained too much on Saturday to do much, so we went bowling. It was raining so hard that we got soaked just going the 15 feet from Brian's front door to the car.
Then after we were done bowling we went back to Brian and Celia's and played with the dog and cat.

Brian got to "coach" even at state!
They lost their 2nd match to a Pocatello team 6-7 (5-7 in a tie breaker), 5-7. It was really close with a lot of deuce points. Poky went on to take 2nd. Jared and Megan really played well and kept it a close match.
The next match they won in a sad way. The girl from the Wood River team had heat stroke, so they had to forfeit the match. It was great for Jared and Megan, but really sad for the Wood River team.
Their match on Saturday morning against Emmett was played indoors. That wasn't too great us to watch because there was one window for 3 courts. There were a lot of people trying to watch three matches, and we couldn't hear anything that was going on, kind of like watching muted TV. They ended up losing in three sets. 4-6, 6-4, 6-7(4-7 in the tie breaker) Sad to say this match had some controversy. Jared's serve is so fast, even his 2nd serve that it's really hard to tell if it's in or out. The Emmett players called several out that really were in. Jared and Megan didn't realize that they had to tell the roving official that they were questioning the calls. They just thought she would over rule the players calls, but she didn't. So the Jared and Megan really didn't lose the tie breaker, but it was too late to do anything about it. The worst part is that the boy from Emmett had hurt his back, and really wanted to quit, but his partner wouldn't let him. He had to forfeit the next match because he couldn't play. So they won dishonestly and then didn't play the next match and Jared and Megan were out. It was one of those life lessons, it's not about winning or losing, it's how you play the game. Jared and Megan played really well and were very good sports, they have nothing to hang their heads about!
