I made it to Alaska and the my apartment mate is great! She is also a 6th grade science teacher. She is from Alaksa and just a little fun tidbit about her is that her babysitter when she was little was Sarah Palin! Isn't that a hoot! She just recently completed her first triathlon! I am really happy with my match. I guess I am lucky at that since I met Mo just the very same way!
Well, I have no car here at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks so I am walking everywhere. I walked for 2 hours. One looking for the museum and lunch and the second going out to dinner with my apartment buddy. The campus is beautiful and they have this wonderful museum called Museum of the North. The building is designed to look like a glacier and it has all sorts of cultural and natural artifacts throughout. Worth a visit if you are ever up this way. The best part of my museum visit was being able to go through the museum at my pace and really taking the time to look at everything that I wanted. As a mom with a 5 year old I never get to do that!
So my plan today is to do more walking and to eat half my lunch and dinner and drink lots of water.
Well, I have to run to my class. I will try to post pics of my trip soon.
Have a great week!
KEEP AT IT!
WE CAN DO THIS!
YES WE CAN!
