The End is Near

Summer is over. We've spent all our money. We drove 13,000 miles in 65 days. We saw Custer's Last Stand, Mt. Rushmore, Kansas City, Grandparents, the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Reno, the Giant Redwoods, the pacific ocean and beaches, Portland, Seattle, drove the Cassiar Highway, the Alaskan Highway and a lot of Alaska. It was a whirlwind for sure.

The mister is at new teacher orientation. Tomorrow they fly to Katmai Lodge which is across from Kodiak Island for teacher in-service. The kids and I will fly to Pedro Bay tomorrow -- Tuesday. The principal flew in last weekend and turned the power on for us. He left the truck at the airport with the key above the dash. It's a 3 mile loop around the village --- it will fun looking for our new house!

I am now the school cook. I will cook 3 1/2 hours a day and then teacher aide for 4 hours. There are only 5-6 students we think .... so we may only be in PB until the end of October.

I'm out of power. More later.

  1. 13,000 miles in 65 days - sounds like my kind of trip! I love your blog - do you remember me - Ann Bender from Chevak AK. We are now in Durham NC ,my last couple of years of working. However, my daughter Elizabeth is in her second year as a media specialist in Delta Junction AK and she loves it. Hope your school year is great!
