Tuesday I saw a spectacular match, where Bottineau beat one of the better schools in the area in volleyball.
Thursday I drove 30 minutes to watch a 45 minute drubbing. However, from both events I got a few pictures to share. Friday I interviewed Bottineau's AD and Head Hockey Coach about Bottineau and Rugby combining for hockey this season.
Lastly, I had a wonderful time this past weekend as my Mother, my aunt, my Godfather and cousin, who came to visit and spend the weekend in Bottineau. It was a great weekend for the trip as I had nothing to cover. They stayed Saturday and Sunday night and left Monday morning. I made supper saturday (fajitas) and we went out to eat Sunday. We took lots of tours and played some Wii.
All in all it was a relieving and much less stressful week than weeks past. We even got done paginating and sending the paper early last night. If only this week would be so easy.
Also I went 9-7 on my NFL picks this week. Not the best, but still up .500. I am now 20-12 overall through the first two weeks. My best upset this week was Jets over Pats.
Here are some pics from this week:
