Fall is here!

It is so nice now that the temperatures have finally gone down here in the QC. Since the temperatures have dropped, we have started playing some paintball again. We (myself, Troy and some of our buddies) played two weeks ago and again last Saturday for a few hours in the morning and had a great time.

I am back to school this week after a week vacation. Man, did I need a week off. Teaching middle school has been a challenge to say the least. The maturity level of these kids is difficult to handle after teaching high school for 5 years, however what is just as bad is the commute that I have to endure each day. It is a long drive for not much of a reward. But the week off did a lot to recharge my batteries and I am ready for some more punishment.

Gabe and Rosie have moved in and I am happy that they feel comfortable enough to come live here. Since I had to move in with my in-laws when I was young, I can totally empathize with them and their situation. I know that Lisa is excited to have Baby Mia living with her for a while. There will be some challenges I am sure, but it is nice to have them here.

I got the pleasure to see Laura Ingraham speak last Thursday in Scottsdale. She is a strong woman. It's nice to have someone with such convictions on my side of the political isle. It was kind of cool to have her sign my copy of her new book (which is excellent). Politically it is a scary time for conservatives. I don't see any real conservatives running on the GOP ticket, and it disappointing to see that a fellow Mormon had to redefine himself with regards to abortion and gay marriage. One would think that a Mormon would be the most conservative on the ticket, but I have to remind myself that Dingy Harry (Reid) shares my religious beliefs as well and we could not be more opposite on just about every issue.

I will write a bit more about the War and politics in the future.
