Just wanted to see if anyone still checks this. I've kind of fallen off of the blogging bandwagon myself. Does anyone know when the Flaming Gorge trip is this year? Cody's getting married on July 31, so I'll be out west for a little while at least, and I'd love to make it down to Flaming Gorge if I can.

For anyone that doesn't know, I'm going to be going back to school this fall at GWU (yes, I'm staying in DC at least a couple more years) for an MPA. I told my principal on Friday that I won't be coming back next year ... kind of crazy / exciting. Luckily he was really supportive.

Love you all.

Here are a few pictures from Flaming Gorge this year.

Flaming Gorge

I was wondering who is planning on going to Flaming Gorge this year. Cammie, Nathan and I are excited to go and see everybody. Aspen is excited to be near a large body of water to swim in.

Swine Flu

So in light of the fact that swine flu cases have now been confirmed in Maryland and Virginia, with probable cases in DC, I thought I'd check out the symptoms (so I could avoid/send home sick kids, if nothing else.) This is what I found:

Check it out.

D.C. Update

I wish there were something exciting going on in my life that I needed to report (i.e. graduation, engagement, new job, moving...), but there's not. But... if it makes you all feel better, I've kind of taken a 2-month hiatus on my other blog as well and decided that maybe it was time to start coming out of my winter-induced hermitage.

Ah, spring in Washington D.C. The Cherry Blossom Festival was beautiful, the azaleas at the National Arboretum are blossoming, but sadly the nice 70 degree weather is already quickly leaving. My roommates turned on the AC today when it hit about 90 outside. I'm also discovering that teachers get spring fever as much as the students do. Everyone's itching to be out for the summer - I just need to figure out what I'm doing with my summer. Any suggestions? Anyone want to come travel with me? Some friends and I are also on a quest to explore DC even more - lately we've visited the Arboretum, Fredericksburg (VA), an old LDS chapel (that actually used to have a Moroni on top) that has been converted into a Unification Church building, and saw the luminaries at Antietam battlefield. Plenty of more adventures are planned for this summer (you know, just in case anyone wants to come join me!)

For some reason I was under the delusion that a college degree and a job meant that I had my life all figured out, but it turns out that there are plenty more decisions to make. I would really like to go to graduate school (shooting for Fall 2010), but I'm still not entirely sure what I want to study / where I want to go. So that's another current project: figuring out my life.

Here are a couple pics from our family's spring break vacation to the Caribbean.

Also... three great words that I heard at church today: quaff, onus, and ensconced. See if you can use those this week :)

I love you all!

Halbasch Update

I seriously check this blog most days of the week and am always disappointed that people rarely update it, so for all of you like me, you're welcome. Here's what Craig, Bosley (our dog), and I are up to:

We recently moved to South Weber, the city that is at the mouth of Weber Canyon. Other than the windy mornings, it is a great place. We moved to a great ward that seems to have more children than adults.

I have exactly 3 weeks left of my dietetic internship and have been applying for jobs everywhere. It's been a long 7 months working for free.

Craig is at Weber State University and will hopefully be taking the LSAT this fall sometime. He tries to talk about politics with me, but I'm not too interested or smart enough.

Our dog, Bosley, thinks he's a guard dog at our new apartment. He growls at everyone who walks by. It's actually quite annoying, but he's cute, so that makes up for it.

The picture is of Bosley and Craig snowshoeing at Fernwood in East Layton. Sometimes we have time to do fun things.
