A Brain Break or Road Trip?? Part 1

The fabulous the thing about "modified year round school" is that we get these little Brain Breaks every nine weeks. For our break this time we headed north to visit family and honor my dad on his retirement, it was a quick trip...2 days in the car, 2 days in Utah. Here are some things that we saw on the 13 hour drive....(it is hard to pass the time in the car)
A view of Lake Powell.

My favorite part of the trip. The Virgin River, with the red rock mountains in the background.

An indian hogan.

Sleeping children, somehow make the road trip even Nicer!

"Excuses are like feet...."

Okay, I orginally was going to give you a bunch of excuses of why I have fallen out of 'bloggy land.' From tissue paper state flag projects to an 11 page research paper, or farm town and face book; I decided after catching up on all of your blogs, and quoting Rex from Toy Story,
"I have guilt... " Excuses are like feet they all stink!!
I have missed my bloggy friends, believe it or not!
I have missed a friend who has lost 50 lbs,
another has lost a loved one,
another has written a book,
another started student teaching,
one is on vacation in Disney,
and another had a rock thrown through her master bed room window in the middle of the night!
I have missed Chanelle's Thrify Thursdays and my neices and nephews running a 5k for school.
I promise to not let time be to long before you hear from me soon. We are on fall break now, and I am off to paint base boards! (gotta love year round school)
