Thank you!

Our latest geocaching adventure first led us around the corner to this tomb, the final resting place for Louis Wolf, a prominent figure in Temecula's history (follow this link and scroll down to 1857 to learn more about him). Grace made her very first unassisted find, a cleverly hidden magnetic mini-micro- alas it wasn't the "treasure kind" (which I knew, shh! she never wants to go on the log only type hunts- she's all about the swag!) but this time her joy was soley in the sense of accomplishment she had for being the first to find.

The next one led us down a dry creek, where we found gold dust, a new hiking stick and a yellow happy face ball. This was my second favorite geocaching adventure yet... read about my first favorite here...

Busy as a Spring Bee!

We are wrapping up our studies on the coral reefs of the world (we watched a terrific DVD called Coral Reef Adventure- link ; I am excited that Blockbuster Online is carrying more of this type of educational stuff- we are anxiously awaiting one specifically about seahorses)- and I guess I got too into it, because I think I have an ear infection, without ever even making a dive! LOL

Grace held my computer hostage for 2 hours today playing Reader Rabbit- she finished it about a year ago and now she wants to do it all over again. We are really kicking this reading thing into high gear. She is doing so great!

Oh well- I only thought I finally had a free moment to blog- now Shawn is beckoning and off we must go!

Good Quote

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may
be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons
than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty
may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but
those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end,
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -- C. S. Lewis

Goodbye Smoochy!

This past weekend on our way back from my darling neice's 2nd birthday bash- we made a few grabs in our old stomping grounds- the always safe, well manicured lanes of Irvine, CA! Learningbarefoot logged our 8th, 9th and 10th find and I've come to realize I'll not be able to blog about each although they are all so vivid and memorable, such wonderful adventures.

On our 10th find we said goodbye to our new friend Smoochy, our first Travel Bug.

See Photoshow.

Like a good steak...

Your Personality is Very Rare (INFP)
Your personality type is dreamy, romantic, elegant, and expressive.

Only about 5% of all people have your personality, including 6% of all women and 4% of all men

You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving.
I suppose I haven't really changed that much in 15 years- a much longer version of this test in college returned the exact same results.
I liked the one I took at one of my jobs- the predictive index survey- it said I was an Adventurer- Discoverer (four categories- adventurer, builder, catalyst and discoverer) each person is zipped into their top 2 categories and a then the company "knows how to use it's most valuable resource"- anyway I liked the title I was dubbed with (one of only 3 AD's in the training department- I just love feeling rare and special!) and have been attempting to live up to my predicted index ever since!
