JohnA: Give It Up For Little Sister

In case anyone was wondering that pretty young woman on page C1 of the Press today is none other than my little sister, Patty Morrison, the principal at Spirit Lake Elementary. She recently received the Rookie Administrator Award from the Elementary Principals Association. Patty comes from a long line of educators, including my folks Jo and Gene Austin, who taught science and physics for many years, as well as her older sisters Beth and Susie. When she got the job I used the old line that it wasn’t the school I minded so much as it was the principal of the thing. :) Yes, her big brother lost a button off his vest this morning.

Question: When is the last time a member of your family did something that caused you to pop your buttons?
