Springtime in the Rockies

Yes, it is spring, which really means beautiful weather, green grass, followed by rain, sleet and snow - sometimes all in the same day! It is also the season of library conferences, meaning I spent early April attending the Montana Library Association conference in Bozeman, and the Mountain Plains Library Association conference in Oklahoma City later that month. In between, I spent a week in Gainesville with Tom, who had just returned from Mexico (he drove back with a friend). We took the Amtrak Heartland Flyer up to OKC - a wonderful way to travel! While there, we visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial, a very impressive site.

James-Philip is now unemployed, although Tom expects to hire him to help with some roofing projects. There is talk of possible jobs in a few months, but right now he's enjoying the time off.

Jon-Erik is still working on graduate school - there was more to the application process than he realized, so it might take a little longer to get started!
