Dear Children,

  1. My brother came off his mission on Thursday. Do you know what one of the first things he said to me was? “You sure do have less hair than you did two years ago.”
  2. With my loss of hair and advancing age I really do need to get married here pretty quickly.
  3. Course, that means I’ll have to get over my fear of cooties which is much easier said than done.
  4. I’m so excited for the General Conference. I think that even if I weren’t Mormonified I would still enjoy listening to Elder Holland, President Eyring, and President Uchtdorf.
  5. I really, really like eating at McDonalds.

And that’s all

Back to School


I haven't written in a bit and I apologize. I noticed that a couple commentors have requested pictures of something. Next time I promise.

Anyway, school started on the 24th of August and I must say it's good to be back. In fact, it's so good to be back, I'm going to write my ten current favorites regarding my workifying at the Payson High School

1. Beating Salem Hills High (a.k.a. Timpview of Southern Utah County) in soccer.

2. Standing on the sidelines during the football games and acting like I'm actually doing something (actually, I'm pretty sure everybody knows I'm completely useless, but at least they still let me stay there).

3. Teaching U.S. history. 19 years after having my first U.S. history class (Mr. Daniel's fifth grade class) I still love learning about the history of our country.

4. School lunch.

5. Judging the contestants at Payson Idol. I'm pretty ruthless, in case you were wondering.

6. Working for my boss Principal Peery.

7. For once having something to look forward to after school gets out.

8. Trying to keep my students from being bored completely out of their minds (occasionally I succeed, but that's only when I bring food to class).

9. Walking into a classroom and knowing that not all of my students hate me (in fact, I think I've almost convinced one or two of my students that they might actually learn something in my class.

10. Coach Chapman and Coach Johnson. They're my guiding lights.

And that's all for now.
