Sun Rise - Sun Set

This week I managed to go running as the sun was rising and setting, and I've realized that I've got to start spending more time near the river! It's not even a mile from my home, but this week was the first week that I ran along it and it was beautiful. The first two shots are from this morning and the last two from Wednesday evening.

I was feeling a bit Tevye-ish...Sunrise...Sunset....

Do you see the family resemblance?

Among Our Family Traditions

Somehow we always manage to make time to stop at the local candy shop....

And introduce our new friends to the Walking Mall...

Gold at the End of the Rainbow

During the week of St. Patty's day my "speech friends" and I are going to go on a search for the "gold at the end of the rainbow". I've designed maps of the school buildings for the occasion. We're going to have a great time, but the best part of all was making the maps:

Trout Creek

Thompson Falls

St. Regis


I've already done this activity with the kids in Hot Springs, so I didn't have a picture of the map since I left it there.

Adventures in Quilting Pt 2

Quilting weekend was so much fun! I kept meaning to snap more pictures of the beautiful scenery, but sometimes being in the thick of things is more fun than photographing. We stayed in a lodge just outside of Polson. The lodge had windows on three sides looking out at Flathead Lake. Mostly I worked on my quilt, but I did attempt to design my own bag to carry all of the basic bathroom ameneties when I travel (it was a flop so I'm not going to show it to you...everything kept falling out of the pockets...).

I cut and sewed most of my quilt strips together during the "Quilt Camp", but I didn't have time to sew it all together, so last weekend I spent some time doing that. I've still got about half of the quilt top to go. It reminds me of a kite:
