Rams and Shrines

Just returned from a fun-filled weekend in St. Louis with two of our best friends. The highlight and reason for the trip was to attend our first NFL game and cheer on the St. Louis Rams. The Rams lost (shocking, I know) but we walked away with many wonderful memories. While in town, we had the opportunity to visit Our Lady of the Snows and see the Way of Lights. It was beautiful!

Recipe: Green Bean Casserole

I have tried a few green bean sides in the past but cannot find anything better than green bean casserole!

1 can cream of mushroom soup

3/4c milk

2 cans cut green beans, drained

1 can fried onions

pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients, including half of the fried onions. Bake for 30 minutes. Top casserole with remaining onions and bake for 5 minutes.

Teacher/Homeschool Resouces

I know that teachers and moms are always looking for resources with a small price tag! I was tipped off to a few years ago and have purchased several of their items. I especially love the music wands. When a child strikes them at either end, a pitch sounds. I have even seen junior high kids play with the music wands! What a great way to introduce sound, pitch and waves.

The Most Wonderful Time

Marching season has come to an end! Our last competition is in the books and the football team has played it's last game. What does that mean? Time to read Christmas music!

Not only is our Christmas concert coming up in mid-December, but there are a couple of auditions on the calendar as well. Many of our band kids will be auditioning for honor bands over the next few weeks. It's a busy season!
