|John and Casey putting on their game faces at 6:45 AM|
|Casey getting some help out of the water|
|John's last stroke coming into the ramp, Yup, that's his Livestrong band on his left wrist.|
|Out of the water and on the way to the Bike Transition|
|Sun trying to peak though above the 'Y'|
|Transition to the Bike|
|Casey making the most of the tail wind on the out bound leg on the south side of Utah Lake|
|John enjoying the same tail wind..... not knowing trouble is just a few miles ahead.|
|In Homer Simpson voice......"mmmmmm......IHOP......" Casey setting up for a right hand turn.|
|"Worst tire change ever" - John was now 40+ minutes behind Casey after flatting. Too bad his dad wasn't there to help.|
|"Hi Mom!" 56 mile ride is done. Next up is a 13.1 jog along the Provo River.|
|Casey on the home stretch|
|Annie (behind telephone pole), "See your dad?' John, "Yup, he's over there"|
Next serious training ride for John is Lotoja, then the big day in November - Ironman Arizona. I predict he'll do great.

We are so happy to have Sarah as part of our family. She is multi-talented. She is great with kids--including young Nadim at a gathering last Sunday in Bethlehem.
Here she and her brothers pretend to help a Palestinian girl frisk an Israeli solider. This graffiti in Bethlehem is by the famed British artist Bansky.
One of the service projects each semester for the BYU students is painting murals on the walls of the Princess Basma school for handicapped children on the Mt of Olives. This was the first semester the Emmett children have helped out. Sarah helped paint the turtle and Joel the cheetah/wildebeest/who-knows-what. Will painted dots on a wolf. Sarah has great artistic abilities.
A week ago we enjoyed the Tel Aviv beach. Sarah is a great playmate for Joel and Will. She helps come up with elaborate and creative games.
A few weeks ago she finished all of her Faith in God requirements and she is now ready to attend Yong Women's for the first time on our first Sunday back in Springville. For her birthday she wants to go to a bookstore and buy a book for the flight home. Without the school library this summer, her reading options have been limited.
