Robotics Club

Tonight I went to Wyatt's high school for a parent meeting about their Robotics team. Wow it is going to be a huge commitment and a lot of fun. They have 3 competitions this year San Diego in March, Salt Lake in March and then in April they will go to Atlanta. This is going to be fun, hopefully if any family members want to meet us in Atlanta they can see the World Championships which Wyatt's high school won last year. :)

Summer is gone


Turn and take the summer with you to its fall.
Take away its outlook and its need--
the message of the sun at hilltop--
and hand it to the courier, who waits
to run the valleys and the shade
and hand it in good season
to its heir.

It has blessed you, truly once again
but summer goes its way, it must,
and craggy hands of autumn
seduce you fresh with promises
filled in blinding summer light,
unnoticed, not ahead.
Ahead lies cold incrimination
that faults you yet again
for missing twice the splendour.

Do not rush estival’s cool end,
for behind her is the icy breath of winter.
Hold her hot against your form
and let her breathe her lovefire on you
and make you sweat
beneath her crushing heat.
Hold her as you know
that she’ll be gone soon,
and in her place will be the snow.

Mother Nature at her best

On this very foggy, moisty morning I got to school and the spiders had started decorating for Halloween early because we had these giant spider webs all around campus. They were really cool, and if you can notice the size of the spider (right in the middle) you can see why the web is so big.

Something to look forward to

I am going to go to Maine again in November, I am so excited another vacation! I am hoping for snow, not to much of it, but enough to shovel, have a snowball fight and to see a little bit of that white stuff. Also I am really wanting to get to my favorite place in Maine, the lake it is so peaceful there.

I love to embarrass him!


I went to the train station to pick up Wyatt this evening and I was set to embarrass him. I had backed into the parking spot, just so everyone walking down the stairs could see me and my reverse ponytail. If it were not so darn hot outside I think he would have skateboarded home. I love these days. AND the good thing is I didn't pick him up at his school like this hmmmmm. . . . maybe tomorrow.

Can't wait to go back to work


I can't wait to get back to school, staying home is over rated! With Wyatt gone all day I am trying to keep busy but uggggghhhh. My house is super clean and my classroom has been set and ready for the school year. I get out and exercise but to many hours of doing nothing.
