My life through the lens

What better way to update you all on the last 6 months than with a picture post. I figure it’s the best way as I know most of us do not have the time to read a million posts.  After all, pictures are worth a thousand words, right? (the pics are in no particular order)


We witnessed Mother Nature unleash her furry as she pounded the West Coast this winter.

Powerful Hurricane Force winds – some homes had no power for 5 days and schools were closed for up to 3 days.  The worst storm that people can remember here in the last 30 years.


Baby pheasants hatched in my classroom this spring.


In October my family and I flew to Germany to celebrate my grandpa’s Centennial birthday.

Of course I made some time to play in the snow and even tried my hand at Cross Country Skiing this winter.

birthday bonfire

Spent my birthday weekend in a cabin waking up to this beautiful view and ending the evening with a lovely beachside bonfire, watching the cruise ships sail to Alaska.
