The joys of Junior-Highers

Breaking up a fist fight when I have no idea what I am doing, getting flipped off in my own classroom by my student, witnessing a boy hysterically crying on the floor when he forgot his HW, and being told, "Mrs. Justice, your hair is all out of place. You look like 'Einstein-the-girl'."
All in a week's work as a Junior High teacher.
Love it.

Domestic

So my friend Courtney is getting married next month and her shower was this weekend. I made my very first veggie tray and must say I am very proud of it!!! Isn't it beautiful? Yes it was my first. I know I should be more domestic, but I am working on it!

Stop the Freedom of Choice Act

As most of you know, Obama made a public announcement that he is going to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act, which will allow all types of abortions including partial birth abortions, also allowing babies who are born alive due to botched up late term abortions, to be set aside without any medical care or nourishment and left to die (most of these babies have no medical problems and most of the ones that do, have things like cleft palates, club feet, things that are correctable, still they are murdered in the most cruel and inhuman way. They feel everything that is happening to them. There is more mercy for dogs that are put to sleep) This Bill also will make it mandatory for doctors and nurses to perform this murderous act even if they do not want to do so. This act also allows under age teens to have an abortion, even partial birth abortions, without parental consent.
Catholic Bishops have pleaded with Obama not to go ahead with this horrible murder of innocent babies. They have also told Obama that if he persists in signing this Bill which would require even Catholic Hospitals to perform these acts of murder, they will have no choice but to close all Catholic Hospitals. Please let us join with these courageous Bishops who will go to any length to change Obama's mind. Please take a minute to sign this statement and let our voices be heard.
This is a great, informative website. You can click on the video of Obama's speech to the Planned Parenthood group where he promised that the first thing he would do if elected President would be to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act. He isn't even in the White House yet and he made a statement last night that he will go forward with his plans to sign this outrageous bill. He still can change his mind because the Bill cannot be signed until he is actually the President.
Please let your family and friends know about this Bill and ask them to also sign this petition. Please click on the web site below. It will take less than a minute of your time, doesn't cost anything and God will bless you for standing up for Him and His commandment, "Thou shalt not kill".
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing"

Telluride

Over Christmas break we were with Mike's family this year, and we went to Telluride Colorado! It was the first time we had all been there, and it was beautiful! The town had a bunch of cute different colored houses.


So in Telluride when I saw this on the Justice's suburban-rear-view-mirror, I freaked out! It's kind of blurry cuz we were driving, but it definitely says, "N 6* (degrees)" six degrees! Maybe that's not too intense for all you Idaho people, but wow! It was definitely chilly up there.

The snowboarding was a blast! There are 18 different lifts, and riding up all of them you can view AMAZING cabins! Oprah and Tom Cruise both own a house there.
This is the view up at the top of one of the highest lifts (12,000 feet). The weather was nice and sunny for the first 3 days.
Jen and I saw a porcupine! It really was! It was the weirdest thing to see it hobbling slowly in the snow out of nowhere. I took a video with it moving, but I was trying to balance on my snowboard at the same time and it didn't turn out too well...
There were elk everywhere!
Nothin like a good snowball fight with no gloves!

The last day snowboarding right before we left was incredible! It was snowing constantly, and the powder was sooooo fun! I had never been in that much powder before, and it felt like we were snowboarding on a cloud! What a way to end the trip! If you'll notice there are no pictures from that last snowy day cuz it was freezing!
So I have to say that this being my first winter back in Arizona (from being in Provo for 4 years) I am loving it! You really can't beat this weather! Driving home from work today I had to turn on the cool AC for a bit. :)
