Dallas Pictures

So I finally unpacked my camera cord and decided to upload some pictures I’ve taken of our 2 months here in Dallas.

First, some of the kids that I teach at Bending Oaks High School:

Here’s a random sampling of the scenery around here:

My drive to work: dsc00545.JPGdsc00562.JPGdsc00565.JPGdsc00568.JPG

Here’s what I was greeted with when I got to work one morning at Flower Mound Montessori. I walked in the door, and there was a dancing……molar!!! Apparently, they were having a “don’t-be-afraid-of-the-dentist” happy fun day! Ironically, all the kids were crying. I died a little bit inside from trying not to laugh.

The apt. we were at for 1 month. Hey, it ain’t bad for $500/month!!

This is a neighborhood that I teach piano in. All of the houses cost around 800k.

This house was actually in our price range (100-150k) when we were househunting:dsc00572.JPG

Last but not least, here’s where we go to church! You can’t even imagine how COVERED with iconography of bible stories the walls and the big dome in the middle are….

That’s it for now!! More of our apt. when I feel that it is presentable enough:)

    Well, Jason, you’ll be happy to know that I have been working hard to get ready for the photo shoot. The final product is not ready yet, however, because I am a picky person, and want to make sure we have enough money for all of our bills before I buy the final touches:) Maybe I’ll post a picture of our cool new couch!

    well don’t feel bad. my mom has been asking for pictures of my apartment for six months. but being the un-domesticated man that I am, I have yet to “clean” as such that i feel i could send my mother a picture of my cave.
