ASL Class reminder

Hello Sisters!
The ASL class, taught by MMMMWAH (yeah, I know it isn't spelled that way...I just wanted to), starts tomorrow morning.

At 10:30 to be exact.

Okay, well, if you know me there is nothing exact about it. But in theory it is scheduled from 10:30-11:30. At my house. (if you need directions call me or email.)

The best part about the class? Totally free. And I am actually going to follow a curriculum this time. So it will be much more conversational than in the past. You can bring your kids. We have a built in tramp and a swingset. I am sure we have some toys laying around.

Just thought I would remind those of you who wanted to come!

Free Book of Remembrance

I found a "Book of Remembrance for the Latter-day Saint Girl" amongst all my stuff when I was packing. It's totally "old school", but the pages are in like-new condition. The cover shows aging/yellowing. The pages are legal-sized. It's basically a fill-in-the-blank kind of scrapbook/journal thing, with pages for birth, blessing, baptism, first day of school, first talk in church, etc., plus family tree, vacations, etc. I don't know what to do with this. If nobody wants it, it will be recycled. So let me know if you are interested.

Preschool Group


I'm looking for a preschool group for my soon to be three year old daughter, Cara. I'm willing to start a group if there isn't one and people are interested. Three years ago I started up a group with four other moms for my oldest daughter, Ginger. She and I really enjoyed this. Each mom took a turn teaching twice a week for 2 hour each day and we even took turns planning field trips. We worked on preschool basics, but didn't follow any specific preschool program. The other moms and I taught lessons, but let the children play with each other a lot. Basics where important, but so was socialization. If you know of a preschool group that has an opening for a three year old or are interested in starting a new group please leave a comment.

No time for practice? Hidden talent? Yearning to learn a specific song?

Throughout this course, we will learn:

* how to break songs into manageable chunks
* how all of those chords, scales and arpeggios your piano teacher made you practice when you were seven actually apply to music
* how to practice a song in five-minute sections
* how to select a song that will challenge you at your current level
* which composers you actually enjoy listening to

How it works:
We will meet one day, every four weeks from 10:30-12:00. The first 30 minutes will be spent going over difficult sections, picking compositions, etc in a group setting. At 11:00, we will have a technique lesson that will improve our practice skills for the next four weeks. From 11:30-12:00, we will play our songs that we have been working on for each other.

Workshop cost:
Class dates:
August 23, September 20, October 18 and November 29
If these dates don't work for you, let me know.

Are little ones allowed? Yes, as long as they will be content being in the same room, but not on your lap.

Did I mention treats? Any performance should have something yummy afterwards, shouldn't it??

Please e-mail me at: by August 15 if you are interested.

Help and ASL Class

Hola Sisters!

You all ready for school to start? I a feel guilty kind of way. I am dying to get my routine/schedule back. And just a little quiet.

So two things.

First, I finished "The Help" and so if anyone wants to borrow it, let me know. I couldn't put it down so it was a good thing that my family was out of town this week. Otherwise I would have simply ignored them.

Secondly, I am going to be starting another ASL class starting in September. I think this time I am going to be following a curriculum that I found so it will be more of a conversational ASL class. I want to make sure that I am teaching you things that you can use to talk to my husband any Deaf person.

I have either Tuesdays or Thursdays to pick from at this point. If you are interested, email me (stef.burns at to let me know and tell me which day you prefer. It will be in the morning at 10am. At my house. It will be a 10 week course. I am not going to charge anything, unless you want copies of the pages I am going to be using. If you do, then maybe $10 would cover that cost. But we can talk about that.

So let me know if you are interested. In the book and/or the class.

Enjoy your last 2 weeks!! Then FREEDOM!!  Ahem. I mean. We will miss them dearly.
