On mountain mornings the wood smokes curls round and round

Time with the grandsons

We went with all three grandsons to the local air show yesterday. It was much fun. Daughter Kris went too. Here is a page I made of the two youngest. The oldest (age 12) has become camera shy.

I have three more weeks of school. the school I work at is most likely going to be closed. Our district is having to close two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school due to budget restraints. My elementary school is 75 years old and is just a wonderful school. The problem is that we are "landlocked" with no room to expand. The remaining elementary schools will have to expand to absorb the students from the two closed schools. Everyone is heartsick. The building is on the national historic register so can not be torn down but it is now surrounded by Northern Arizona University and most likely the University would want to rent the facility.Our weather is finally starting to warm up a little. Although it did snow last Wednesday. (not enough to count through). Today it is supposed to reach the low 60s and the wind is not too high. It seems to take the mountains a long time to find summer.

I will leave you today with these words of wisdom.

The name "Wendy" was made up for the movie Peter Pan.

Have a good one!

I saw this LO at DD & at Jessica's. It's a great LO and sounds like a fun day was had by all! That's too bad about the closings of schools there. The budget cuts in education are just plain sad.
