I visited my sister in her new hometown of Houlton, Maine right before Christmas. Where is Houlton, you ask? Follow highway 95 all the way north; if you've reached customs you've gone 2 minutes too far. She just started her first job there as a 5 - 12 music teacher, so I followed her around a bit in her schools.

Between school assemblies I wandered downtown to the water.

I was amused by every kid in the front row wearing jeans and sneakers.

The start of the annual teachers' rendition of "Twelve Days of Christmas"; can you be taken as seriously with antlers on your head?
