Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta 2015
We did manage to go to the balloon fiesta last Saturday! Got up at 4am, and arrived at the park and ride around 4:45....to discover that since the last time we attended, the park and ride has become very popular! Instead of city busses, they are now using school buses to haul us out to the balloon field. Seriously, there were easily 400+ people out there.
Of course, this was the first day of the fiesta, and I knew it would be crowded, and to their credit, it was well organized. We arrived in well ahead of the mass assention at 6am. The only negative I experienced was burning my tongue on the coffee!
It was really fun.....and it wiped us out for the rest of the day! I swear, we can home and napped for a couple of hours.
On the BYU course.....the day after I submitted my quiz, I received an e-mail letting me know that I might be able to take it again ~ for a fee. Interesting, huh? I suppose this is how they keep the tuition fee low for the course, by offering you opportunities to retake the quiz by paying for the privilege. I don't know what the cost is, because I am not able to retake the above mentioned quiz. Higher learning ~ so much of it is all about the money. Sigh.
