Sunshine On My Shoulder Makes Me Happy

College of Idaho


What a welcome sight. We arrived in Caldwell, Idaho this afternoon, and there is blue sky and SUN!!!





We have traveled down here for Idaho State History Day.






Z2, Kiki Aru and I got on a bus at Kellogg Middle School at 6 a.m. this morning (and this is one of those Alpha Omega charter buses...not a yellow school bus) and we traveled down through Washington and Oregon to arrive here this afternoon, to pleasant weather.





We did run into some snow on the Blues, and ran into problems a few times when the normal rest areas that we usually stop at were closed because of the snow. But we survived.





It was amazing to go to dinner, and see green grass and sprinkler systems running. There were fruit trees in bloom.





Okay, it has been a very long winter in the Silver Valley.





I look forward to being at College of Idaho tomorrow. It is a beautiful campus, and we can again enjoy some more of the beautiful flowers and grass.





I'll give an update tomorrow night on how the girls do in their respective categories. Z2 is doing a Junior Division Group Documentary on "The Conflict and Compromise of the Coeur d'Alene Indian Tribe's Culture". Kiki Aru is doing a Junior Group Performance on "The Conflict of the Salem Witch Trials".





Goodnight.
