Between several Nebraska Girls HS basketball State Championship games today, I found time to add some pictures to the "Elaine" slide show which I worked on recently. This one was taken the summer before Elaine and her classmates graduated from Seward HS. It was taken out at the farm where Elaine grew-up and includes Vernon, Jean, Elaine and Skip (Walter). Elaine says, "this was taken west of the flower garden out on the farm. The day consisted of horseback riding and fishing in Plum Creek". It sounds to me like a "good time was had by all".
In addition to watching the Nebraska HS girls Championship games, we also just finished watching the Nebraska UN-L girls beat Michigan State 86-58 in the semi-finals of the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis. Nebraska will play Iowa tomorrow for the League Championship-something that Nebraska has never won. The Nebraska girls games are most interesting to me after having watched Junior Emily Cady and Freshman Hanna Tvrdy play their HS games with Seward. Emily has really been a "stalwart" on the team. It was mentioned tonight that she and Big Ten player of the Year, Jordon Hooper started their 97 consecutive game for Nebraska tonight.
