Education Week is Coming!

Well, it's that time of year again...the time of year when I plan what classes I want to take at Education Week at BYU. I pour over the catalog, agonizing over the selections, wanting to take more classes than humanly possible. I come up with a schedule, talk it over with my mom (who, along with my youngest daughter, comes with me), and then we make changes. Again and again and again. Fortunately, we don't have to commit to a schedule ahead of time. We do like to have a plan. We just never stick to the plan. The only thing that is set in stone is we have tickets to a performance by Jenny Oaks Baker on one of the evenings. She will be performing Disney tunes on her violin. How perfect is that?! Oooh, I just got a thought--maybe the sheet music is available, and maybe an extra extra easy version of sheet music is available. I might be inspired to take my violin out of its case and practice!
If you have been to Education Week, who are your favorite speakers? Favorite classes/topics?

Ten Things of Thankful: Autumn Edition

It's autumn time, one of my favorite times of year.  I just couldn't leave this weekend as a one-post weekend.  

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Monday Mentions: Equate Crutches

Have you ever needed crutches? I hadn't, until a week ago.  I'm pretty sure I strained a muscle while running a half-marathon.  (That sounds kind of cool, doesn't it? I'm not actually that cool; the last time I strained a muscle it was from carrying too many shopping bags at once.) In any case, I found myself in need of some crutches. I sent my husband to the store to get some. Photo: A pair of crutches leans against a wall  Not that crutches are all that complex, but because I hadn't used any before, I wondered if I could figure out how to adjust them to fit me properly. I shouldn't have worried. John came home from Walmart with their generic store brand of crutches, complete with instructions. First, I needed to take out a long bolt that went through the hand grip. Then I needed to find my height range, push down two metal pieces, and slide the crutches until the little metal pieces came up in the hole near my height range. (Having two people for this
