We have been here in Anchorage for two years
now. We have been blessed to experience soooo much yet we
feel like it has gone by really fast.
Speaking of time going by fast ... we will be
leaving in less than 5 months! We finalized our plans to
return to Pennsylvania back in the late fall of 2009. We
will be leaving Alaska on the weekend following the end of
school. School ends on Friday, May 21st and our plan is to
leave Alaska on that following Saturday or Sunday (22nd, or
We plan to follow the Alcan highway down to
Seattle and then over to Boise to visit the Rasmussens. We
will stay there for a few days (or as long as they can put up
with us .. which ever comes first) and then head due east to PA.
We plan on rolling into PA some time during or shortly after the
first weekend in June.
It looks like Pastor John and Sandy will be
visiting us in March. We are really looking forward to
that visit! March is a great time to be in Alaska ... that
is if you like snow. The temperatures are getting a little
milder by that point and the days are getting much longer.
The average high temp for mid March is around 34 and the
daylight lasts from around 6:30 am to around 9:30 pm (including
dawn and dusk). So, you have long days to experience
Alaska; the temps are not brutal; and the landscape is just
beautiful from a full winter's worth of snow.
By the way ... I know I have to update the
picture on the home page with a pciture that includes Jake, but
we do not have a family picture yet! I will work on it!
Back to the grind tomorrow. School -
work - sports.
