the night of the 24th

Setting: Faith Lutheran church
Characters: Brad, Karen, Katie, Osten, Grandma Betty, Bruce, Julie, Isaiah, Ibby, Joe, Dehlia, Joe, Henry, Brent, Molly, Siri, Ivan and Ike and a lovely congregation.

Next setting: shores of Wood Lake
Characters: all the above (less the congregation) plus Grandpa Bud and Mike
We ate some amazing soups--chicken wild rice, chicken noodle, sausage/potato/kale and ate lots and lots of lefse. Then we opened gifts where Brad got our adult exchange gift of a nice batter bowl and recipe books, I got a sampler of Virginia peanuts and jams and Colorado spices, Katie got some film for a camera, slime making supplies and a pretty sweatshirt and Osten got a game. Anders spent time with his girlfriend, Emma and will be joining the family later today.

settling in

The past two days I have spent some time in my new classroom space doing some directing and organizing. I'm really excited to get things...
