    We'll be at/near Disney--my daughter's soccer team is in the Showcase Tournament at the end of December. We're driving down as a family and have rented a 3-bedroom condo for a week. It's been years since we had a family vacation--I'm really excited!

    A tropical vacation sounds lovely right now.

    Just finished up the second day of craziness in a row. The sculpture contest went off well. I am so glad it is finished though. Tomorrow's only hiccup comes at 2:00. Two days of school next week and then Thanksgiving break. I cannot wait!

    And then it will be just about time to begin that Christmas break. You must be getting exhausted with all those vacations coming right after another!

    Which Washington would that be, ....... the one on the east coast or the one on the left coast? ........:p:p

    Just kidding, swansong...:hugs::hugs:.... We had planned to be in Texas during Thanksgiving, but that's not going to work out...:(

    However, my wife is a guest speaker at a seminar in the TX hill country (actually in San Antonio) in February....... sooooo that will be our spring break....:thumb:

    Scrambling.......

    Sooooooooo, I went "scrambling" today..... Lots of fun and very tough hiking...... Steep climb up a trail with lots of 3-4-5 ft boulders to negotiate. And yet the decent was even harder...... Maybe I was tired... :p ... Trekking poles really helped on the way down....... Anyone who hikes knows how much trekking poles are needed on the way down........:)
