A new year hus begun and we are just catching up!

HELLO FRIENDS! So much has happened in the last few months that we are just now getting a chance to sit down and catch up on life. At the end of August, Mark and i both began teaching again. Mark is in his third year at Kahlotus High School as the Agriculture/FFA teacher & advisor... He seems like he is enjoying it much more this year... he actually comes home earlier and dosent feel as presseured so i guess thats a good thing. As for me, I am no longer substituting! I am actually doing my student teaching internship in Connell, which is about 20 minutes from home. I am teaching at Connell High school in the art room. It has been a slow process but i am not getting classes handed over to me and i am actually enjoying myself. However, i now understand how mark felt at 9:00 at night and wanting to go to bed =).

These last few months have not only been busy with school, but with lots of other fun events. At the end of August while Mark finished up on the farm (which has been a good year) i got to go on a weeks vacation with mom and spend sometime with all the ladies in the Mohelman (my moms side) family back in my moms home town of Park Rapids, Minnesota! It was soooo much fun and i cant wait to take Mark back there to see it all... he still hasnt been back there.. Hopefully that will be the next trip.

In September we got to enjoy two weddings, both of which were groomsman in our wedding. Congratulations Andrew & Kristen Sayers and Geno & Holly Bonnalie! Mark had the privilage to be a part of Andrews wedding in Walla Walla as his bestman (Andrew was our bestman). Both weddings we beautiful and lots of fun.

Mark has once again been busy with FFA events... University of Idaho Ag days, fairs, and competitions... I on the other hand have had the chance to sit back and play a little with my best buds. A weekend in Moscow at the Kappa Delta 10 year Anniversary/Reunion, Baby showers, and short visits here and there. This weekend we are actually staying home, but starting friday night guests are showing up here. We are trying to double the size of Kahlotus (atleast thats what mark is saying). We are having a 24 hour BBQ from saturday noon to sunday noon, but with family coming friday night. So if you are in the neighborhood, stop by!

I am so excited for the holiday seasons to begin... our home is currently decorated in the autumn decor with pumpkins, leaves, etc. and i am loving it... plus it gives me an excuse to get crafty!

We hope all is well with you and your families, and hope to talk to each of you soon. Keep in touch, and I promise, i will try and do my best to keep up with posting whats going on with us. Let us know if you have blog we can check out!

God Bless & Happy Autumn!
Brittany & Mark
