The drive down was BEAUTIFUL, and we had two days with not a cloud in the sky. Alyeska is our biggest downhill ski resort located at Girdwood, Alaska. Addition to winter sports, there are great hiking trails, disc golf course, and other activities that keep visitors busy in the summer. My husband and I make a weekend trip between summer and winter when prices on the hotel drop.

I loved the Raven fireplace screen!

To the left is the building that holds the tram.
We didn't take it up to the top this trip.

In the winter, this is part of the ski slope.
In the summer, this is part of the disc-golf course.
|That's ice -- it was below freezing both nights we were there.|

and my camera (phone) was left in our room, so no pictures!
I didn't get either position I interviewed for, and I am so totally fine with it!
I was under the impression that (because every district I have knowledge of did it this way), because the positions were being offered after the start of the school year, they would be long-term sub positions to the end of the year. These were contract positions that would require me to leave my district. There are many questions that would need to be answered before I would resign my current school district this point in time.
Before I leave you, a quick knitting update: Falling Leaves Lace Shawl is coming along nicely and I'm to the point where I had my temper tantrum with the pattern and frogged the entire lace pattern. I am back to virgin yarn!
The updates to the pattern give periodic stitch counts, and are great after the lace pattern shifts and added YO on the wrong side.
I have two more pattern repeats (14 rows) and will be done!
I hope that's enough yarn!
