I mentioned in about me section that I spent a month in France studying the language, people, Culture, art, architecture, and Food. Well these are a couple pictures that I had used in a few fairs for competition.. The one on the Left is of course the Eiffel Tower and the one on the right is a market street in Strasbourg France.. When I took pictures I had a film camera so I am in the process of scanning all of the pictures so I can post them on my blog, myspace and facebook.. So eventually I will have a lot of the pictures posted.. I love France and the everything about it.. I know that a lot of people have the wrong notation that people in France are rude and disrespectful.. Well I am happy to inform you that notion is completely wrong... No matter where you go whether it be France or New York or hey SLC you will always run into people that are not Friendly. I met the nicest humblest people... I had an opportunity to attend a Branch in Limoges and wow! that was an incredible expirence that I have ever had. The members of that branch were very welcoming and very humble.. I am glad that I the opportunity to spend time there.. I hope to go back one day!!

" I am an artist too I too can create a masterpiece "
~ Quoted from a child as he was putting up his artwork for the art show!
As you all Know I teach Pre-school well that is one of my teaching jobs... Well here are a few of my very cute Pre-schoolers that I taught this year at WSU... We had a lot of fun!!! This Picture on the left is Abby she is very fun and way smart.. Right Above is Allison and Maiya they are two peas in a Pod and they love doing the Rain Dance!! Right Above them on the left is Taley.. She may be small but she is definitely a fire ball and loves to dance and sing... On the right hand side is my little entourage of friends... We were celebrating Mckay and Kenidy's birthday that day!!!! Grace who is 5 going on 25 (her parents always tell me that and they would be right) and then Brienna who is truly a princess if you know what I mean but she is loads of fun and loves to play dress up and talk on the pretend cell phones that we have... Teaching is a great expirence I am very glad and very blessed that I have had this opportunity...

"If you look the right way you can see that the whole world is a garden."
~Mary Lennox; The Secret Garden
My Mom and I went to the Thanksgiving point Tulip festival and these are a few shots of the festival and the Thanksgiving point gardens.. It was a beautiful day and the flowers smelled exquisite... Mmm I love flowers in the Spring... The gardens out there are so beautiful... At first I thought there would be fields and fields of tulips.. I was surprised that there wasn't but I did see thousands of Tulips... I am very glad that I went...
