What a crazy-busy month we've had!!
Travis is a natural at teaching. All his fellow teacher-friends are highly impressed with him. Both the assistant principles have mentioned Trav going full time next school year, which again, says a lot about his ability to present material and manage the class room. It sounds like his students like him too.
I must say I'm not surprised. :) Travis is an incredibly easy guy to get a long with and enjoy being around. He is so easy going and relaxed.
Other then getting up at the crack of dawn I think he's enjoyed this opportunity. He has really done a good job staying on top of his responsibilities. I love that he takes things seriously - but does so with humor and love.
I have been busy learning music! I love it! BUT DANG IT'S HARD! I have learned many instruments and will continue to learn more next semester, which is exciting and scary. We'll see how it goes.
we've been busy with family as well. This past weekend we threw a surprise birthday party for my Mom - and it was a BLAST! We went to Sizzler and I must say I'm quite impressed. I LOVE SHRIMP!!! Happy birthday to my Beautiful Momma! :)
Travis's parents and brother are out visiting for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Trav's dad, Bruce, spent Saturday with Trav. They were able to go to a BYU game (vs. Air Force - BYU won! GO COUGS!!!), went out to lunch and dinner, saw a movie, and came to my vocal/harpsichord recital (thank you for coming, by the way. It meant a lot.) Bruce spent the night and went to church with us. It was a lot of fun to have him.
Sunday Alicia, Mary Kay, and the kids came down for dinner. It was a BLAST! We had a delicious dinner and played games afterwords. (sigh)...I love family.
Earlier this month we had an amazing Thanksgiving dinner with my side of the family (this year it's our year to spend with the Braun family). It was incredible. Ashley decorated the tables so beautifully. She had levels, textures, colors and so much more. My mom did an incredible job with the food. It wasn't stressful at all. Everything came together perfectly. Oh...that food was GOOD! I was able to help by cleaning the house. A pathetic way to help, I know, but a need nonetheless. :) we had around 30 people total for dinner, I believe. It was such a beautiful evening.
How lucky are we?!?! We get to have two Thanksgiving feasts this year! Ummmm! Ummm!
Anyway, we have been running around, trying to stay ahead of the game. We have been incredibly blessed and are so grateful.
Happy Thankgiving ya'll!
