Sunshine & Wild Horses

Earlier in the week, we had a beautiful evening so Erin (the newest roommate and co-teacher) and I decided to take a walk on the beach with her dog, Peanut. :) More beach glass found!

Then on Friday, we celebrated Kevin's (5th grade teacher) birthday. We had delicious sandwiches for lunch then celebrated the night away dancing and laughing. :) All in all it was a great night!

Saturday - I met Julie out at Morris Cove to lay on the beach, read, and hopefully see the wild horses. We succeeded on all counts! It was a fantastic day full of laughter and sunny delight! And horses!! We saw four of them. We even fed them - carrots! (Shhhh....not sure if we were really supposed to) They loved us. Overall, they were friendly - only a little pushy - they would use a little dose of manners, but it was super fun to see them. Enjoy the photos below!

My snack bag was bright blue - and kept attracting bees. Ryon saved us from several of them and we discovered that there was "something" on it. Turns our they were little bugs or spiders - kinda creepy - like little parasites. Gross!

Eagles, eagles, everywhere...

To make your heart smile...

From a writing prompt asking who they would add to Mt. Rushmore:
I would add Ms. Wood to the Mount Rush Moor monument. I would add Ms. Wood because she makes a differentce every day. I would also pick her because she's probably the most awesome teacher in the world. I would pick her because she has good taste in everything. She is the most awesome person ever and that's why I would pick Ms. Wood's face on Mount Rush Moor.


  1. Hi, Erin! Nice to see a pic of your newest roommate. And farther down in the photos, I see Julie back by the horses. WOW! Those things look like they weren't shy at all! Kinda scary, if you ask me! It made my heart smile, too, when I read what your student wrote about you being on Mt. Rushmore. I couldn't agree more! (Of course, I could be a little biased!) ((Love you, My Sweet!))

  2. I can't help but think your students response put a big smile on your face and in your heart. Thanks for sharing your adventures. What a beautiful place you are in, you don't seem to be minding being there at all. Horses, birds, bugs, oh my!

  3. Ms. Wood has good taste in everything....especially canned soup!!! Miss your face! Teryl

  4. That comment by your student was soooo cute. They are pretty neat at that age. Didn't you just love to be able to feed the wild horses? How neat is that??? Amber, you really look like you are enjoying AK. It looks like such a beautiful area that you are in. God bless your day, Sweetie.
