We woke up for our last day in Moscow and wanted to make the most of it. The last time we visited was 4 years ago when Nathan was only 6 months old, and we didn't know the next time we would be able to travel there again. Thankfully, Chet, Kat, and Owen still travel often to their house in Somis or meet up at Steve's parent's house and we get to hang out at those places. We had breakfast and Owen went to school. Cheston gave us a great idea to go see the Grizzly Bears at Washinton State University in Pullman, so while he worked Steve, Tory, Kat, Rosie and Nathan drove there. It was quite spectacular to see 4 bears out of their cages in the grassy area where 2 of them were ... read more

Today started really early with the kids up not long after 6. We suspect it was from their anticipation of going to the Palouse Ice Rink to try some ice skating and then watch Uncle Cheston's adult league hockey game. We first had some donuts for breakfast and headed to church at Christ Church lead by Pastor Douglas Wilson. The service went as well as can be expected for two kids who aren't used to having to stay in the service with us. We enjoyed the liturgy of a more formal church. We stopped by the Walmart again and got some Starbucks to bring back to the house as a treat. We all had lunch and hung around the house for a bit before Rosie went down for a nap. Tory took time to rest too ... read more

A fun day and night all around Moscow! It started with a trip down the street to the park to watch Owen's rugby game. It was funny to see people in tank tops in what we feel like is cold morning weather. There was a parade downtown for the Idaho University homecoming that we went to next. It was really fun to see all the local teams, bands, and several farm equipment right in front of us marching by. The parade also threw out candy that the kids loved, and Nathan and Rosie enjoyed the views up on Steve and Cheston's shoulders for a while, and right in the front of the parade. It ended with 5 firetrucks and a street sweeper, much to the kids delight. We walked around after and stopped at a pizza ... read more

Getting ready for another active teacher traveling summer AND - this year only! - even a personal vacation!! We can't wait for our trip in June, right after school gets out, spending a week on the Cornish Coast. The coast holds a special place in my heart, I think because we spent so much time near the ocean when I was a child. So this year we will be spending time on the English coast which is a first for us! Added to the trip, we will spend some time in Bath, in a castle, as well as in Dublin and London. SO exciting! In addition, I'll be going to Nashville with my FCCLA kiddos in July and taking a Fellowship trip to Washington, DC in August! I thought, this year, it would be great to ... read more

As promised here are some photos of the Moscow Farmers market. There is not much produce this time of year, especially with the terribly rainy spring that we have had. The best time to go to the farmers market is from July through October when they close. But, if you are looking for handmade gifts and jewelry, then this is a great time to visit. Speaking of produce, going to make some huckleberry jam tomorrow from huckleberries picked right here in Idaho on one of our camping trips. If you ever get a chance to go camping in the mountains of Idaho in August, don't forget to look for our huckleberries. They are delicious and made great shakes, jams and pancakes. They grow on small skinny bushes and there are only a small number of berries ... read more

Yesterday was our first trip of the season up to Moscow Idaho for the Farmers Market. For those that do not live in the area, Moscow is the home of the University of Idaho (of which I am an Alumni of). They are also host to some great festivals and the largest farmer's market in the area. They close down a parking lot in downtown and have 6 rows of farmer's, ranchers, vendors and food to enjoy. They also usually have some form of entertainment available during the market (runs from 8 am to Noon). During this time of the year, most of the produce available is in the form of plants for your garden, later on they have everything that you can think of that is grown in the region. It is nice to get ... read more
