Moments that just make me wanna…

When someone comes up to me and asks are you allowed to drive, I mean like how do you hear sirens in case of an emergency?

I’m wishing I could just be like…

Aunt Chris, Pam, Shelia and I decided to go out to see Saving Mr. Banks. Discovered auntie has the same love for root beer as I do! 

My reaction was a bit like this! Oh my gosh, ME TOO!

It was a fun moment. We bought popcorn, we laughed, we cried- GREAT MOVIE. When we walked out of the theater we saw snow falling! The magical kind…No crazy wind storm with it or the slushy rain/snow kind. . Simply falling snow and everywhere you look its covered in snow! I was silently cursing to myself for not bringing my camera along. We ended up taking the snow route in 4 wheel drive thats how much snow there was on the ground. We make it home, the snow crunched under our feet, I look up, I have to admit…

I was so excited I even tried to catch a few…But this was more like it…

I rushed inside to grab my camera and walk outside again to take a few photos.

Since I didn’t pack any type of snow boots it was a challenge holding onto a camera trying to stay still taking night photos. . I like to think I was graceful but the moment I took on step on the snow this was me… 

I had the silliest grin on my face even after all this… I love snow.

This is a great video. It shows an ASL user learning a foreign language. What a great team of people. I hope my students have options like that when they attend college :)

I saw a little of this while visiting Gallaudet years ago. Very cool stuff. 

What a mind this person has! Intelligent, knows exactly what she needs to be successful in her field. Most of all she has compassion- that in itself will take her where ever her passion lies. Yay! This makes me smile.
