Memorial Day Weekend

It was nice to get home this weekend and see the fam. My sister and brother-in-law were home Friday and Saturday as well. They had to head to Jamestown for his sister's graduation. Friday and Saturday were very relaxing, with some shopping and a little Indiana Jones thrown in there. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was very believeable. After the movie we went home, had a light dinner, and some ice cream cake from Cold Stone to celebrate Steph's birthday, which is tomorrow! Happy Birthday STEPH!Yesterday morning, my parents, youngest sister and I headed up north to my Dad's hometown for a cousin's graduation. The last time I was up at the farm was over a year ago. Where does the time go? It had rained so much in the past couple days. I could tell I was in farm country as that appeared to be the conversation starter over and over again. The gravel roads were horrible! Congrats Tony ... and your 19 other classmates!

Today we headed back to Bismarck early to get my sister to work on time. Then, I packed up my car and got on the road again ... for another near 3 hour drive.

This week we only have 3 days of school left ... and then a teacher work day. You have no idea how excited I am. This week also marks the begining of my 16 week plan to train for the LifeNet Sprint Triathlon. Bring it!

Here are a few pics from the half marathon. I wasn't too excited, but they weren't horrible.
I hope y'all have a wonderful week!

Looks like a good strong finish!

So how many weeks do you get off? My wife was a teacher and I was always bumbed when she was off, and I went back to work on Monday.
