Summer Vacation

Science Center

“Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.” - Chinese Proverb

I'm happy to report that my spring semester is done and I am taking a summer vacation from school. I need a break.

The spring semester was really neat because I got to spend 30 hours in two classrooms at my local elementary school - Tavan Elementary. It was so fun! I think that I am going to really enjoy teaching someday. My favorite experience was helping with the first grade field trip to the Science Center. Look at that happy smile in the gigantic telescope pictured above. If I ever had a doubt, I know now that I am on the right track for my future. I will love teaching.

I also took my first semester of Spanish. Oh my, that was tricky. I took four years of French in high school. Fortunately, Spanish is very similar, so I have a basic understanding of the language. Unfortunately, my Spanish sounds a lot like French.

Work has been keeping me quite busy too. In fact, there are a few upcoming events that I should share with everyone. I will be hosting my final book signing at Bead World in Phoenix on this coming Saturday. Friends and family are welcome to stop by to make a pair of free earrings and check out my book. Also, I will be appearing on Jewel School on Jtv with my co-author and co-worker Jamie Hogsett in 2 weeks. I'd love to have you tune in and check it out. Here are the details:

May 12 - 12pm-3pm

Needless to say, life is just busy, busy, busy, but I do look forward to a little bit of down time for both Joshua and I this summer.

Grandma's birthday weekend in Montana

We spent a lovely, long weekend in Montana. It was the perfect quick getaway. We spent lots of time with family and celebrated my Grandmother's 84th birthday.
