The Loon.  Every time we go to MN to visit in the summer I make sure that I get to hear their melancholy sound.

I admire the Savior.  I want to emulate my life after His.  When I do I feel the most joy.

Diet Dr. Pepper, I drink it daily more than once, twice, three times, you get my point!

I like to watch football, especially live.

9.  What's your favorite color and why?
I like Earth tones.  Especially Yellow, Red, Orange and Green.  It depends on the day.  I enjoy the autumn.  The leaves, caramel apples, jeans and sweatshirts, walks in the woods.

10.  Name one of your pet peeves.
Not being in control of my life.  Chaotic moments of life.

  1. :o) ... you are more than welcome! I enjoyed reading your responses. 6th grade teacher ... wow!! I think that is the coolest age of our youngsters. It's about that time their brains really kick in and they start to know the world is more than what they see.

    Oh, and dark chocolate is definitely the bomb!
