Driving the Alaskan Highway was quite an experience. After making the over 3,000 mile trek, Ben said that when we move back to the lower 48, we're just getting rid of everything and flying back. But, honestly, I enjoyed the drive enough that I'd do it again next summer. The final stats for our … Continue reading Driving the Alaskan Highway
😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 I've discovered something. Teachers are more excited about summer than the kids are. Fact. Or at least that's been the case with me! I'm SO excited! Today is our last full day in Pilot Point. We'll be flying out tomorrow, (it's the bush so it's almost obligatory to add: weather permitting) right after we … Continue reading Summer Time

When Ben and I started telling friends and family we were going to be moving to Bush Alaska, we got a lot of questions. And one of the main questions we got was, "Why Alaska?" Welllllllll..... When Ben got closer to finishing his degree at BYU-I (in Spanish Education), we realized that we didn't know … Continue reading Why Alaska?
