|Yes, my eyes are GIGANTIC. But it's kinda my signature feature. Well, that and my Jay Leno/Grandma Dotty underbite.|
But my point! See ... I'm still here!
Why? Because while our students are studying and taking exams, we have a tiny reprieve from classroom teaching. AND it's the one time in our lives when we can justifiably lock ourselves in our offices--without interruption--and read student papers. It's AWESOME.
I really REALLY love Finals Week. (And my students at BYU. I feel really fortunate to teach there.)
Now, about blogging ...
It's been a few months since I've posted consistently, but I am still in that "meh" mode when it comes to sitting down to blog each day.
BUT I'm trying to accept this phase and just remember, "sometimes you feel like a nut; sometimes you don't." This is just a time in my life when it is a little harder to get the time/motivation to blog daily. And so it is.
That being said, I'm still taking photos and hopefully those can fill the gap until I'm ready to write more often.
I hope you are having a great Easter and Passover week. I love love love Easter because it means SPRING is coming and it means we get to celebrate the Savior's resurrection and our own ability to begin anew--be reborn--each and every day.
Now, for This Week in Pictures:
|Elder Meehan's Missionary plaque hanging in our ward building.|
|Elder Meehan and two other missionaries (the one on the R. was one of his companions, Elder L).|
|Bam and her friend went to the BYU Ballroom Dance Company's performance on Friday for her birthday celebration.|
It was AWESOME!
|A lot of glow-in-the-dark numbers. So amazing.|
|A tic-tac-toe number.|
|More from the performance. Neat for me to see also: two of my students are on the traveling team.|
(And they are married. So cute, right?)
|Bam and one of our favorite small people--on Bam's bday.|
|Just before the performance began.|
|Two of Bam's favorite bday gifts.|
|At the Ballroom Performance, standing outside the Marriott Center (beautiful Bam, beautiful mountains).|
|The wonky faces run in the family.|
(And it secretly makes me happy.)
|Bam's untraditional bday cake. She doesn't like cake or cupcakes. This made her happy though!|
|Just before the church dance on Saturday night. Jr, Bam and Papaya.|
(Grandmas--Bam bought this dress with the bday money you sent.)
|Bam and her YW leaders Sunday evening at the Young Women Stake Recognition Night.|
Bam earned her YW Medallion. It was AWESOME.
|I made mango chicken over coconut rice in my crockpot. I know food photos are wonky, but the color of the food makes me happy!|
|"Y Mountain" on the last day of classes. Woo hoo!|
PS: Because it's Easter, I thought I would post this 3 minute clip our church just released on YouTube and LDS.org about Jesus and his incredible ministry/impact on humanity.
I love it! It's called #BecauseOfHim and you can view it here:
