And we're back










After recovering from a two week struggle with a particularly nasty cold bug, we were just in time to enjoy a couple of special events. The first was Victoria’s first meal in the motorhome. She seemed to enjoy the broiled salmon, if throwing it all around is a sign of enjoyment. It was a fun dinner and Halley really enjoyed participating in the cleanup.

Thursday we attended the Okaloosa County’s teacher of the year awards dinner at the Convention Center. There were some 600 people in attendance to celebrate with the selected teacher of the year from each school. We were there to cheer on our daughter, Heather, who was the teacher of the year from her elementary school. It was a very nice dinner event, with short videos and presentations for each of the winner. The tables for each of the schools were decorated with a special theme. Some of the schools went over the top in trying to be the best.

All in all it was a great way to get back into action after our confinement.
