I've been busy doing homework, learning a great deal and enjoying it immensely. I'll be in class two times during this week and am looking forward to what we're going to learn. Everyone I've met through NSA is interesting, kind and energetic, and the curriculum is exciting. It's been a long time since I was in school and I'm finding it stimulating. It came at just the right time, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to learn new things.
Gregg and I took a quick trip to visit David last weekend. It's a 5-hour trip from the west side of the state to the east side, and the terrain changes dramatically as you travel.

|Eastern Washington - look at those clouds!|
|Sushi & Sashimi for three of us to share|
Kim & Gregg are like brothers. It's fun to get together and hear stories of the days when they were growing up.
We enjoyed walking on campus with David and seeing the beautiful Catholic symbols and art.

|This statue needs no explanation.|
|They have candles and lighting sticks available for anyone to use.|
I lit a candle; there is such comfort in this simple act of prayerful intention.
We took walks through downtown Spokane, marveling at the power of the waterfalls on the river.

|A beautiful, renewable resource - spring snowmelt!|
