After school we ran home to grab the doggy then headed out to the glacier for a walk around the lake. It was warm and sunny and we both agreed that we could have stayed there all evening.
Rosco ran around smelling dirt and actually got his paws wet jumping through the streams ( he is sooooo NOT a water dog). I think it's safe to say that a great time was had by all.

Today Molly and I did our 10 mile walk today. The weather has been nasty lately so it was such a great suprise to wake up to blue skies and sunshine!
We started out at my house and walked to my favorite coffee hut, The Grind. It was goregous and along the way we saw the first signs of summer - SKUNK CABBAGE and FLOWERS!

I bought my first pair of running tights! I needed to start buying the clothes I'd wear for the marathon so that I could wear them in so to speak. I wasn't sure how I'd like them and was happy to discover that they are sooooo comfortable. I just want to live in them! Oddly enough, I'm starting to look forward to running just so I can wear my tights ;-)

I don't know anything about the other people in the photo. I wonder a lot about the women who are photographed with the group. I wonder what their roles were in the war since this was a time when women were pretty much expected to stay at home and raise their babies.
I have a few more photos and will post them soon.

What a week it's been! This week was SBA testing for the 3rd-5th graders in Juneau. As the testing coordinator my life at work always gets a little crazy the week before, of and after testing. Things went fairly smooth this year and two of the teachers said I was the most relaxed test coordinator they'd ever dealt with (REALLY??? I guess I put on a good show!).
The kids all took their tests this week and it was an exciting time at MRCS. We fed the kids breakfast, gave out prizes to hard workers and decorated the school with lots of encouraging messages.
Monday and Tuesday will be spent packing up the tests and getting signed off by the District Test Coordinator. Once I get the final signature there will be a HUGE weight lifted! I already have a massage scheduled for Saturday afternoon and Adam and I have a dinner date planned for that evening. AAAHHHH, I can't wait!

My dad e-mailed me this picture today. He does a lot of research about our ancestory and came across it while on his historical quest. I love looking at an old photo and wondering what story it would tell if it could speak. Why did someone choose to capture this particular moment over another?

As most of you know I celebrated my 30th birthday back in February. Adam really wanted to throw me a suprise party at DIPAC but the "planner" in me made that impossible since I had the same idea (the party at DIPAC part-not the suprise party part). So, with the help of my sweet friend Molly we came up with a great theme and got the ball rolling.
