Congratulations again, Kali!

I also love reading "The Lord of the Rings" with my son.

The sleeping bag story was very funny (well, maybe not to your nephew).

Thanks for all of your contributions!

Thanks all!  Being involved in TS has been such a blast!  Being featured like this has been pretty cool as a teacher too. I tell my students that I have writing to do now as "homework" -- but they still complain about homework, anyway ;)  I do admit that my "homework" is a lot more fun than theirs, but I won't admit that to them!

Great to learn about you. I am also a teacher. Can you believe how good we have it? 3 months off in the summer 2 weeks off in winter, 1 week off in spring to go play outside and 9 months doing something we love. Best kept secret. Your photos are fantastic, especially the mission photo. Boy, will you have stories when you are old and on your front porch rocking chair.
