Last night we (Christy, Lavon, Erin and my Mom) went to a Barnes & Noble in Madison, WI to see Jodi Picoult. As always it was a wonderful experience. This is the third time I have gone and this time I go to share it with friends and family. I even met up with friends down there (Juli and Brenda). There is something about hearing an author reading from her own book that just makes you want to read it. Jodi's new book Nineteen Minutes is about a high school shooting and bullying. The more I read the more disturbed I get which makes me want to read more, but also makes me think and feel uncomfortable. I can't wait to discuss this book and look forward to it discussion potential both in a class and in book club.
The photos I took didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but here they are anyways. Enjoy!!
Check out more photos of our snow, but these are much more fun.
Last week, while Travis and Sarah went to look at houses (more on that when it is official), Therin, Kya, Louis (and his parents) came over to play in the snow. Grandpa Tom and Grandma Irma came to play too. Grandpa Tom took on the challenge from Travis to build a tunnel through our snow bank and succeeded
Joel and Therin enjoyed the hill using our laundry baskets for sleds. Yes, we are a pathetic aunt and uncle we do not own a sled.
Ok so those of you who use MySpace probably know about this fun thing and I know I have seen it before, but I have never tried it. I know you have seen these photos already, but I just wanted to test it out!
I just wanted to let all of you know we did have a little fun last weekend it wasn't all work. On Sunday afternoon we went skiing with Jenn M with the help of my friend and co-worker Ron F, who is on the ski patrol at Mt. La Crosse. At first it was a little rough skiing for me. I remember it being easier last year. No broken bones this year and one very minor head bouncing situation which almost completely mended already, right Dr. Wulf! Jenn and I stayed until nearly 6:30 p.m. when the visibility (at least for us) got a little challenging. Because it was snowing our glasses/goggles would get foggy and had water spots on them. In the last run down the hill I found myself removing my glasses then closing my eyes. Probably not the best idea I've had, so I decided to hang it up for the night. Thanks again to Ron F who got us discounted lift tickets and rentals, we had a blast!
