Kelli’s Got Talent?

Tonight is the Teacher Talent Show at our school.  Dave and I are performing- he’s playing and I’m singing.  You might be asking, “Playing what?” as a certain gorgeous person that I know asked me when I told her.  She followed that question up with, “A CD player?”  It still makes me giggle.  Nope, Dave is not playing the CD player.  He’s playing Taylor Swift’s “Our Song” on the guitar and I will be singing.  I will not lie- I am nervous.  I have no problem performing to a room full of faceless strangers.  But it’s different performing for your students.  Especially the judgmental and overly critical middle-school variety.  We did get a little boost of confidence yesterday during rehearsal, though, when some kids wandered in from outside to listen to us and started clapping along.  Most of the kids here LO-O-O-O-O-VE Taylor so I figure it’ll go over well, even if we flunk it up.  No harm in asking for good vibes though!

Four weeks of school, five until we’re home.  I’m very excited for the summer.  I’m also excited for next summer as Dave and I discussed what we want to do (sometimes you do have to plan).  We’re thinking ALASKA.  Yes.  A couple of weeks in Alaska would be awesome- we both have wanted to go there for a while and I think that summer would be the ideal time.  We’ll see where life takes us, but it’s in the works already!

People.  People crack me up.  I love when they get up-in-arms for getting called out on something they shouldn’t have been doing… but they’re angry because they got caught.  And they want you to side with them.  And you can’t really because, secretly, you agree with the people that called them out.  Cryptic enough for you?  You never know who’s reading…

I’m off and running.  Day 2.  Done.


I am a wife, a mother, an amateur photographer, a writer, and a teacher. I am so lucky to be able to travel the world with my husband, two particularly adorable daughters, and two lovable fur-babies. I never expected to get the travel bug, but I'm so very glad that I did. These are the records of my adventures and my every day lives as I spend my days with the people I love.
