Merry Christmas!

Hi, I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season.

We have been busy, as usual.  Last week, I changed classrooms at work and will now be teaching the 3's/4's class (with occasional after school kids thrown into the mix).  I have been moving furniture and reorganizing, while still trying to keep the kids constructively busy.  I am very happy about the change, and look forward to getting down to some teaching of the ABC's and 123's, science, and art, as well as how to get along well with others part of life.

Last Friday, we traveled the two hours to Eugene for an early Christmas Eve with my side of the family; returning the next day.  It was so much fun, and I am always grateful for the big hit of love that I return home with.

Last night, we spent Christmas Eve over at Cary's Mom's home and are going back over there today.  It is always nice to spend time with the folks who live near us too, and to observe as the kids grow up into such neat people.

I hope that you are all well and happy, and I will be around to visit you soon.

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

Check this stuff out below:

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
