as most of you know, i love to read. i've been thinking about what i can do this summer, since i have a lot of down time in the evenings, and i have decided that i am going to read as many as i can of the top 100 classics on

i've read a lot of them, but i haven't read a lot of them too, and since i'm supposed to be teaching these books to students, i should probably have read them, and picked the best ones.

one caveat that i may add is; i will not be reading neither the iliad nor the odyssey again. i will probably have to teach them, so i'll worry about that when it comes up.

today is my last day of school. i am extatic.

i've done summer classes the last two summers, so i have now been going to school for 9 semesters straight. i need a summer to relax.

i'm a terrible journal writer, but this line of journals seems like something i could actually do. all you have to do is write a one line memory, quote, or whatever, per day for five years. i can do that!

there is a standard one, but also one made specifically for mom's, and i think it's adorable.

i'm not big on religious decorative paraphernalia; that's what growing up in my parent's house will do to you. it's rare when i find something that i really love, and even more rare (it has never happened until now) that i actually buy it.

i saw this print last summer, and i've been thinking about it ever since so i finally bought one, and it came in the mail last saturday. i love the provo temple for many reasons, but mainly because it reminds me of home, and it reminds me of my eternal family (davis and i were married there in 2007). now we can enjoy a piece of it in our home.

thank you ashmae for this beautiful print. someday, i hope to get one of her personalized portraits as well.
