About Me

Ausmus Family PhotoShelly Ausmus:

How thrilling if I could have been a pioneer of the Wild West.  I seek to apply that same energy to a tired world that seems to have accepted that there are no more worthy frontiers to explore.  I am married to Mike, and we have two adult daughters whom we adore.  I teach Language Arts at a fabulous Christian School, and we are happy to be part of a wonderful church family in the city of Tacoma Washington. In our spare time, Mike and I play Skip-bo, watch movies, and scour the country roads of the Pacific Northwest, looking for cool things to take pictures of.

Random Stuff –
I love:
cookies, fruit pie, and most candy
Palouse Country (Washington State) during Harvest Time
The Mitford Series (it’s “Anne of Green Gables” for grown-ups)
country music while driving down country roads
phone calls from my adult daughters, asking for advice
phone calls from my adult daughters, giving advice
laughing at stuff kids say
“Ah Hah” moments when I say something that makes a student think
long nature walks

I Hate:
self pity
stepping on slimy (or squishy things) without shoes
listening to the neighbor’s dog bark all night
