  1. Enlightening experience all over! Sign of Evolution too. You're never done learning I believe.

    1. You are so clever in your comments! You should join the A to Z challenge next time!

  2. Education is the link to the past, present, and future.

  3. What a cute school, with the bell and everything'
    And after graduation, keep learning! Through our lives, we're out of school way longer than in, and have the opportunity to learn whatever we want. As I know you do. :)

    1. Education is much more than formal schooling, that's for sure!

  4. Education is really great. Paying back student loans. . . not so much. ;)

    1. True, but education is one of the few things worth going into debt for.

  5. ...a college? yow.... how many students? still in operation?

    (actually pretty cool, being that small: 'Class today we study American History.... who has the textbook?'... lol a little education humor)

    being comfortable learning and acquiring (an) education is good, getting enjoyment from the very process is excellent.

    1. I don't know why it is called "College." It was my mom's elementary school. It is still in operation. I don't know how many students there were, nor do I know how many there are now.
      I agree that learning should be fun, even when it takes effort.

  6. Looks like the building is well-perserved. As well as mom??? Education takes place EVERYWHERE!

  7. I was with Clark... maybe College is a regionalism for the district or something? I miss school... I wish it wasnt so expensive I would go back again.

    1. I should ask my mom and see if she knows. I imagine you are right.

  8. What a wonderful picture! A good teacher is the best thing any of us can ever have.

  9. Such a cute little school! Love that it's still in operation.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
