Family Day


Since we bought our house this year, we haven’t had the money for a vacation, and I’ve been pretty busy with work. So, we’ve tried to keep Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays for family stuff. Tuesdays, especially have been important times for us.

This week, after VBS and then swim lessons, we went to Edwarsville. We stopped first at the library to look around. Here’s a shot of my girls reading about ballet.

Up next? School shopping and then dinner!

“I’m a doctor…”


“But probably not the one you were expecting.”

So says The Eight Doctor in only his second on-screen performance. Paul McGann was chosen to be The Doctor for the BBC/Fox TV movie, that was supposed to launch a new series. It didn’t because it was awful.

But he wasn’t. He was actually quite good. The line referenced above was from “The Night of The Doctor” a mini-episode released online as a prequel to “The Day of The Doctor,” the fiftieth anniversary special. It was with this line that The Eighth Doctor earned a very special place in my heart.

This little fellow was a Father’s Day present to myself during a trip to Books-A-Million. He came in an opaque pack to conceal his identity. I had hoped for him, and, wouldn’t you know, there he was!

Up, Up, and Away! 77 Years Ago!


Action Comics #1 hit newsstands on June 1, 1938, featuring an incredible character who has stood the test of time: Superman.

I love comics and superheroes, and the Big Blue Boy Scout, the Man of Steel, has always been my favorite.

I’m sure I’ll write a post about why he’s my favorite at some point, though it should be self-evident.

He. Is. Superman.

Goodbye, Old Friend


This week, I packed up my room. This classroom was the first room I’ve ever had for more than one school year. In nine years of teaching, I’d moved every year until I got this room. For the first time in my career, I had a room. It was mined, and I loved it.

Now, it’s not all sad. I’m moving to a new room, in a new building, for a new position, with the same great district. It’s bittersweet, but I’m excited for what lies ahead.
