First Day of School

Really. The first time in PUBLIC school for either of my children! This wouldn't be so unusual for my son, who is four and actually starting VPK. It is unusual for my daughter who is starting her first year of High School!!! I like the schools and I feel great about them going. We are so lucky that Diana's bus stop is right next to the house. Edmund's school is close too. I love this town.
Diana got admitted into an awesome program and we are so excited for her. Congrats Diana and Edmund!

Yosemite Valley

Every view was spectacular! IMHO you can't even find a bad view here. Flying 2,427 miles and driving 153 miles to get here was worth it! I felt exhilarated to finally be in the immense presence of Half Dome and El Capitan. There is unlimited adventure here awaiting your footsteps. In two days, I managed to scramble up rocks and boulders toward the falls in the morning and part way across a river in the afternoon all while holding my son's hand and we still made it to Glacier Point by sunset. Incredible! This awesome trip was sponsored by my Dad! Thank you!!!
