Summer Adventures #1

After much dripping of the faucet at the old white farmhouse I have decided to make another blog post.

I have completed one year of teaching in Greenville, Texas and enjoyed every minute of it. I'm looking forward to another year of working with my students. They are always a lot of fun.

One of the benefits of teaching is that you get to have the summer off, which I have almost used up. This post will attempt to document what I've done so far this summer.


After School got out in early June, I went to the Texas State Republican Convention and somehow got away with only one good picture which I have put here. It's of me and the nice fellow who put us up in a hotel. He's wearing an original hat from when Goldwater ran.


After the convention I went to a week long Hermeneutics class in Kansas City. It was with the Ezekial Project and Bruce Henning was the teacher. He did a really good job of teaching the class and I enjoyed it. While I was there I spent the week with Carl and Tisara.





More Later!

My Trip to Greenville part 2

After Branson I went to KC to see Carl and Tisara and:


Tobias had a birthday party while I was there:

I also was able to be at the Bible Chapel of Shawnee on Sunday which was nice - I hadn't been there to visit in quite a while. Bob Schroeder (Chris Schroeder's dad) is in their meeting and was the one who gave me a violin about 2 years ago. It had apparently been sitting in storage long enough that it still had gut strings on it. He said that his grandmother had played it when she was little. I refurbished it for around $150 and have been using it ever since. Anyway, I was able to play it on Sunday for him and everybody else - I had been wanting to do that ever since he'd given it to me.

I also got to see Danny and Jamie, who gave me an elephant ear plant, but I left it in Kansas (aaargh!). It was probably for the better though because I don't know where I would have put it now that I'm here.

My trip To Greenville part 1

I'm finally getting settled here in Greenville and now I'm going to catch everyone up on the past two weeks of my travel. I mainly saw this:



However, I did get to stay in Branson, Kansas City, Topeka, and Hutchinson for a couple days each so that broke the monotony.

I first made it to Branson and stayed with Jay and Deb. Henry made it clear that he was so bored with me that he'd rather sleep on a folding metal chair.


Here are some other pictures:

Off to Greenville

I left Cleveland today for my new job in Greenville, Texas. For those of you who don't already know, I will be teaching violin as part of a Suzuki strings program in the public schools in Greenville.

I'm feeling reflective right now as I have no radio and I've been driving for 9 hours - hence the metiphorical picture on your left. I'm crossing back to the West and the Saint Louis Arch not only signifies new opportunities but also...

Ok, nevermind, that sounds like I'm trying to get published in the New Yorker. I am sad though about leaving my friends in Westlake but realize that God has moved me away from there for His purpose, and for that I'm excited. I look forward to what God has planned for me.

I'll be visiting family and friends on the way down (well, sorta on the way down): Branson, KC, Topeka, and then Hutch before I actually get to Greenville on the 6th.

I'm posting this from Saint Louis Bread Company (Panera). I had to stop because I was falling asleep and so were my legs.

Back to traveling...

Tucson



I recently went to Tucson for an audition and although I didn't win I really enjoyed the "vacation" from dreary Cleveland. I stayed with the Rockhold family and had a wonderful time getting to know them. They gave me a little taste of Tucson and even a little of Mexico. They actually are related to some people I know so we had lots of connections and knew a lot of the same people. Here are a few pictures I took while down there:


The one above is from the back porch of a house that Steve and Curtis have worked on. They build custom made cabinets.

Curtis and I went just over the border to Nogales, Mexico

I finished the trip in Pheonix by eating dinner with Eric and Sara Channing before flying out. Sara and I both worked at Kansas Bible Camp when we were younger. It was nice to see them again and to get to know Eric a little better. He has been studying Greek in Seminary so it was fun to talk to him.

They will soon be parents!
