Mr. Scott


Lori just sent me the first picture that I have of my in my classroom. Somehow, Mercedes ISD thinks that Valentine's Day is a holiday (although you might make it a holiday too if you saw how many flowers they had in our building; it was insane!), so she came and observed me teaching in my first period class. This is me getting ready for a day of teaching about bonding. You wouldn't know the lesson was about bonding unless I told you, because I haven't written the objective on the board yet!

Jalapeno 100


A couple of weekends ago, I rode the 50-mile tour of the Jalapeno 100 in Harlingen. Here I am decked out in team gear with most of the group that rode together from the Brownsville River Rockets.

The Start

My whole life, my father has told me to keep a journal. I know that he's right (aren't they always?), but that nugget of knowledge hasn't been enough to keep me dedicated to it. I've tried a few times, but one of the biggest thing that holds me back is that I'm always trying to catch up on things that I should have written down in the past, rather than just jotting down what's going on now. So my new resolution to keeping a (b)log of the events in my life is to not even bother if I don't get around to it right away. Then, if the mood strikes me, maybe I'll write something down from the past. Otherwise, I'll just ramble (as I am now) about the most recent events.

Mom was here this weekend and we checked out a bit of the Charro Days events, namely the Sombrero Festival. After I dropped her at the airport today, I went for a run at South Padre Island. After going out one direction for about 3 miles, my IT band started killing me, so it wasn't exactly the most fun return trip. This, of course, happening just as I am resolving to get back to running nearly as regularly as I did during the glory days of college.

First Post - Sushi


This is Jill, Chris, and me making sushi and having fondue on February 6. Chris brought the makings for the sushi and the headband is a gift that Jackie sent me from Japan (I have no idea what it says or if it's on upside down).
