Today Alaska is 50.

Today Alaska celebrated it's 50th year of statehood!!

To commemorator, Alaska issued a new stamp.

My father in law the big stamp enthusiast asked if we would go to the ceremony.

We brought Madie and Ben with us because it was there special day and we were going to Build a Bear(That will be tomorrow's post.)
Anywho as we were setting there waiting somebody said "you know the governor will be here." Madeline said "You mean Sarah Palin." I said "yes" not realizing she even knew who Sarah Palin was. She brightened up and was all the sudden very excited!!

It was funny to hear an 8 year old say I can't wait to go back to school and tell my friends I met Sarah Palin.

Even after she went to Build a Bear she kept saying I can't believe I met Sarah Pailin.

It was so cute.

During the ceremony a women musher came up to us with her new mushing dog. She let Madie pet the dog and also paused so we could get pictures.

Afterward we waited in line for the Governor and photographer of the stamp to sing our stamps and envelopes.

This is a pic of the photographer who took the picture that is the stamp-Jeff Schultz
He was kind of a ham he was signing the stamps when someone said she's trying to take a pic. He just looked up and gave me the cheesiest smile ever. We all had a good laugh.
Here is me and Sarah. Ok so I look like a total dork Because I kept saying under my breath take the dang picture already to Dale. Everyone near Dale kept laughing cuz they could tell I did not want my picture taken.

Uniforms! Such a controversial issue nowadays, for wholesale electronics more and more schools force their students to wear uniforms every day. When seeing a sea of students all china wholesale with tiring expressions and exactly the same clothes, I can’t help but china electronics wholesale ask, is uniform really a sign of unification as its name suggests? What wholesale do students truly benefit from this “compulsory sense of unity”? It’s indisputable wholesale that middle school students are experiencing the most fascinating period of life, a time china wholesale when the consciousness of beauty should have been promoted. What they really want is a stage to display their individuality and to demonstrate their unique existence, but not to be treated like machinery which was brought about by institutionalization. It’s their unalienable right to choose what to wear and realize their own values within effective guidance, but not to be misled to a wrong conception that being even a little bit different from others is uneasy.Secondly, wearing the same uniform curtails the freedom of these young people.
