Just a Quote...

My mom was reading a book tonight about a woman who wrote about Jane Austen...or something like that. So, here's a quote she read me from the book! :) 

"If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad." -Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey)

And, in honor of needing to have a little adventure in my own "village," here's a picture of me at school today.....holding a raccoon skin! I got it off the side of the road on my way to school one day! It's my new class mascot. 

Uh, no. Definitely not. I was just kidding FOR sure! lol One of our great staff members shared a presentation today for the kids and showed them his collection of Native American artifacts he has hunted, collected, and made. HE was the one who got the raccoon off the side of the road. And I have to say, though I have bravely held an alligator in my lap in a boat on the Amazon River in Brazil...I would probably NOT be brave enough to stop on the side of the road and pick up a dead raccoon! (See, adventures abroad, just like the quote said!) haha I was trying to make a, "Yikes!" face here, but the picture was taken too soon, and I actually look like I'm enjoying the experience! 

Never a dull moment in the music room! 


  1. I about died when you said you got it off the side of the road!

  2. Adventure is always important, even if it's something as simple as an inside joke between co-workers. It's important to have fun!
