Spring Break!

We’re off to New York. But first, a stop in Denver to eat Vietnamese with Neal at New Saigon. Our flight doesn’t leave until 12:55am, and on top of that I didn’t get much sleep last night, so we’ll see if I get through tomorrow without a nap.

I haven’t been to New York in 14 months. The MetroCard I keep in my wallet has expired.

The exciting part is that this time Ben and Amanda are joining us. They’ve never been to New York, and I’m hoping they like it.

The past few weeks of school have been brutal, and it’s only poised to get worse when I get back. I probably could have really used the spring break time for school work, but that wasn’t obvious before I made plans. I’m getting tired of the whole school game, but I’m not going to think about it until I get back!

We get to celebrate both Jonah and Amanda’s birthdays in New York. It better be a good time.

Dave and Tera visit

Dave, for reasons not entirely clear to even those of us who urged him to do so, took a UIL Calculator test. He finished the number crunchers in ~17 minutes, which given an entirely unfamiliar calculator, more than decade without practice, and a few beers beforehand, is an astounding time. Berck declined to take the test as he now assumes a loss to Dave in all such things to be a foregone conclusion. Tera acted suitably impressed.
