Now where??

Ok ladies,
We've had enough of a break. Where shall we go next? I hear Habitat for Humanity will be needing a lot of people in New Orleans. :)
I won't be doing FWCC because its not during my spring break.

I am teaching 3rd Grade and LOVING it. I have 11 of my previous students (with 23 total in the class). Its all not a giant love-fest, there are a few squirly kids in that group...

So, seriously.. where to? I have a short Christmas break, Spring Break, Veteran's day (early Nov.) and of course the summer!

And yes, I am fully aware I have to figure out that (grrr) car rental stuff.

Missing all of you so very much

PS: Aimee, thanks for the package!!

Chrissy's run-in with US Customs

One moment of the trip home sticks out in my mind.

Setting: US Customs in Houston, Texas

Cast: Joe Customs Agent, Joyce (me) and Chrissy

Scene One
Chrissy clears customs, by less-than transparent means. =) Joyce honestly discloses that "we" walked through a pasture while in England. Joe calls back Chrissy.

Joe: Did you walk through a pasture in the UK?
Chrissy: I forgot about that.

Final Scene
Joe reams Chrissy for lying to a US Customs Agent. Joyce doesn't get reamed. Both Chrissy and Joyce have to dig through their luggage to get out the shoes they wore while walking in the pasture.

Note: Joyce got to use her walkie talkies while walking through the pastures in England.

Always use walkie talkies while walking in English pastures - they might improve memory.

Um, I'm home

Yep, I'm home! I only had a few nights of waking up at 2am but I think I'm okay now.

So are we done with this blog for now... since it is supposed to be a traveling blog?

Or should we talk about where we want to travel next? Who's up for Guatemala in March 2006? Ireland in 2007? Other ideas??

Keeping the traveling bug alive...
