Bell Choir

Bell choir is a huge part of my life. I have played since 3rd grade and that is how I learned to read music, leading me to trumpet, etc. Since about 7th grade I've played the base octave pictured here (we were at a mass ring when I took the photo hence the other ringers EVERYWHERE! totally neat). I'm in two bell choirs now and LOVE IT!!

Fort Wayne Zoo

Add Video

Our pumpkin is the 1200 lber that is the base of the panda. We donated it to the zoo. Too bad I didn't get to see it in person since we live 3 hrs away. But it looks sooooo cool!!

Is it Winter Yet?

A teacher at school asked me the other day, "Aren't you dreading winter?" I thought, "ARE YOU KIDDING!!??"

I can't wait until winter. Not because I love snow (I actually do), but I want to HAVE TIME TO ACTUALLY SWEEP MY HOUSE. Haha. This last month has been such a whirlwind. Every weekend we've had a cross country meet AND a weighoff to attend. And these things aren't local either. One meet was an hour and a half away, and one weigh off was in Indiana. We are gettin around!! I am sort of depressed this life-style (travelling everywhere and never being home) will end once we have kids but it will be a relief in a way and an open to a different amazing chapter in life. But there is still another year or more until that so don't get any ideas. :)

I really do love how life unfolds.

This year was amazing for our pumpkins. Best ever! We really lucked out because most of the "heavy hitters" had bad years so we could place higher than normal. I finished 2nd in Indiana, and Nick was 5th at Canfield. Definitely our best ever. We still have one weighoff left in Columbus this weekend.

Boating this year was fun as always. Warm weather was a major plus.
