Monday, Peggy & I decided to go for a nature hike out behind the local dam at Belton Lake. I had been there before with some teachers and a second time with our students, but this trip was the farthest I have explored this area. It was a perfect day complete with dragonflies, butterflies, mushrooms and frogs. See below:
Yes, I picked up this frog on my own with out prodding. I almost stepped on it and had to pick it up.Today we board the airplane on our very long journey to Oslo, a trip that usually will take about 14 hours, but due to someone leaving the rookie to make the travel arrangements we leave at night, have to be at the next airport at 4 a.m. and will get a little tour of New York before actually leaving for Norway and arriving the next day. Yes, you heard it folks, we will take three days (not 72 hours, but still) to get to Oslo. Upon arrival we will meet up with a girl I met randomly on a blog so many years ago. We are very excited.
Well, it is late (early) and I have some sleeping to get done. I am packed and ready to go. Woo Hoo!
