The Sailcover, and What Else Happened

Alisa sewed most of the day on Monday, and most of the day on Tuesday.  By Tuesday night she was finally finished with the sailcover.  Here she is, lying on the completed project, a little too tired to enjoy her triumph.  We went to bed at 11 that night.

Two and a half hours later her water broke.  By three thirty Wednesday morning we were in the pregnancy assessment room at the hospital.


At eight in the morning this guy was born.


We named him Eric Leo Abookire Litzow (the First).

Alisa and Eric are both doing fine.
