Book Club

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note to your wall.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Oh, Wisconsin.

It was really great to see my sister last weekend. Or...I guess now it was two weeks ago. Time is flyin by. Teaching every day, almost, has been pretty good, I still like my students, and I really like most of the band directors. And apparently it makes time go by really fast. 

Anyway, back to the weekend in Milwaukee. It was absolutely beautiful with all of the trees in their fall colors!! Even as it gets colder here in Fort Worth, and the trees are changing a bit, the colors are nowhere near as extreme. If I had a picture of the view from the plane, I would post it. 
I think instead I'll put up a few pictures from the weekend. 

Where to start? How about with a beautiful
picture of Owen and sister?!

Then, Owen and Aunt Laura:

Ava Loves  books and it is adorable. 

Ava all prettied up for church. Isn't she awesome? 

My favorite picture.
I love my sister's dogs. Callie is apparently terrifying though. 

But not really, I guess dog yawns are pretty scary, especially when they are being sat on by a two year old.

It's so ugly it's beautiful. I can't decide if I want one, or want to laugh at one. Both I think. Yup. Pretty sure I need one.
