A Note From Grama

I just want to say hi to everyone.
I've been canning applesauce and tomato sauce from out of our garden. Kind of neat. And I just submitted a short article to The Ensign, but don't know yet if it will be accepted. This is the first one that I have ever submitted electronically.

Have all of you seen the pictures of Jon in uniform?

Hope everyone is enjoying school this year.

I love you all.

Can you read this?

Did I do it right? I never used a blog before. Here I think I'm so clever because I can do wikis and PowerPoint and even create games with hyperlinks for my students, but I've never "blogged". Can you read this, Madi? Please let me know if you can.
Love you all!

Okay, so now I really need help. When I click on the icon that says add image, nothing happens. Can I repeat, NOTHING HAPPENS.

Anybody know something I am doing wrong?


hello, all

Good morning. After several attempts, I managed to sign on. Just want to learn how to do this.
Good letter, Madi. Can you believe, when I started 7th grade, it was my second year in the big Ferrysburg School. I spent grades one thru five in a one-room school (DeWitt School). Ferrysburg school had several rooms I think at least six. I did grades six, seven and eight there. Just a year or two after that, Ferrysburg school burned down one night. I still remember watching the glow of the fire from my bedroom window but we didn't know until the next day what it was.
Have you all heard that Jon signed up for the Army ROTC? I have pictures to try to include here. I love you all

My day has been Great!

Hello Everyone!

Good afternoon or morning or even night!

I thought I would tell you guys about my day. Today, was 7th day of school into the school year. So far it is going great. *If you didn't know already. . . . I am in my 7th grade year of my school life* I start my day with advisory and this class is with Mr. Sayles. So far he is a good teacher, though he doesn't have much of a humorous personality. Their is nothing wrong with that except I am usually around people that are funny or laugh occasionally. So I just need to get use to it, that's all. By the way in advisory we just talk and he asks us to dream big and make our lives the best it can be. Next period is Pre-Algreba. I have this class with Mr. Millay. He is pretty much the complete opposite of Mr. Sayles. Here's a description: Funny, always joking around with us students, never that serious, and is very helpful. {Mr. Sayles is helpful, too though.} After Pre-A, I have Physical Education also known as P.E.~ I have this class with Mr. Sobolewski and I know I do have a lot of male teachers. It's like any P.E. class, we run, fitness test, run the mile, learn and play sports, and have a blast. By the way Soboe *Mr. Soboleski* is awesome and can be strict but more then most of the time a wonderful, funny, and sarcastic guy to be around. My 4th period class is Choir with the one the only {Drum Roll} Mr. Gallager! He is a very cool and musical guy! Even though he is a little weird or dorky with his music he is awesome!! I ♣ Love having him as a teacher! He is great with teaching us notes, time signatures, rythmn, beat, and just being able to sing well as a group. Then I have lunch with Friends. . . . . . . . Theeeere Great! For my 5th period class I have Language Arts/Reading with Ms. Kleeburger. I don't know, I mean she is okay, but she is super strict with talking. She is probably 38-42 and has been teaching for 12 years! I yawned in class today really loud and my friend, Ronnie made me yawn *cause he yawned* and my teacher got pretty mad at me because that is disrespectful. So that was really awkward but I am cool now. We just do surveys, writing samples, and or Quick-Writes. Next is 6th period which is with Mr. Millay! I think he is wonderful! I am so happy he is the only teacher I have 2 classes with! Yea! Yea! Whoo-Hoo! Basically we do Key Terms, Maps, Read chapters, or jdo worksheets on what we are learning. Last and Finally class of the day is with Mrs. Hoesly in 7th period. She has us do Key terms, worksheets, and experiments. She is a good teacher, but she is kind of like Mr. Sayles because she doesn't really laugh and as I've said before that is totally and completely cool with me. It is just something I need to get use to. Also she is completely nice! That is all about my teachers, school work, and schedule. By the way . . . . my day has been great, and it will end on a high note because we are having pizza tonight and mutual is in 2 hours!!

Now enough about me already! Guys as a way of showing love to me and the rest of the family *PLEASE . . . . . POST LETTERS OR JUST NOTES WHENEVER YOU CAN SO WE CAN ALL TALK OR COMMUNICATE OR IN SOME WAY STAY IN CONTACT*

I love you all! Have a great night, afternoon, or morning!

Selee Family Temple Night

Thought you would like to see this....There were twelve of us at the temple that night!
Posted by Picasa


This is great!! I sure hope everyone does it!

Out on the Lake

The Larry Selee family was invited out to Merwin Lake with our Home Teacher & wife (Farris & Liz Owens) on Saturday afternoon! Impromptu and a blast!

Welcome to the Selee Family Blog!!

Good Morning all! During the Alexander Family visit to Washington, we talked about creating a family blog to better help us communicate and share events, pictures and life with each other........well here we go!! I ( Shellagh) did my best to create a place for us to do all of the above. This is fairly new territory for me so there may very well be things that need to be corrected.

A few items of business relating to the blog.....At this point it appears it will let me send the blog, and/or new blog comments to only 10 emails. So, I tried to pick one representative out of each family (the family being Grama Selee & her kids/spouses) and then we had a few more spots left so I added the 3 missionaries.

Also, I don't have email addresses for all the cousins/kids. So, please forward those addresses to me if you can. Or if you see that I have missed something else please email me!!!

And.....I need to get back "accepted invitations" from each of you so I can add you as administrators as well. That way you can all do all the administrative stuff. And I don't really know what kind of stuff that entails, but I'm sure you all need it!! :-) AND when you accept the invite you can then start posting to the blog. It's very easy to post & add pictures so please add as much as you like!!

We love you all!

Shellagh, Larry & 3 blondies (Madi, Kenz & big Al)
