We have been so very busy lately! I haven't made the rounds on my favorite blogs in forever and if I do pop in, I usually don't have enough time to comment. I hope to do better soon. I also plan to post more to my blog so I can blurb it for keepsake.
Anyhow, let's see... I started teaching 3rd grade after teaching first and second for eight years. After the initial "oh my gosh, these kids can DO", I am settling in nicely and feel like I have landed in Heaven. My students are AMAZING and such busy little bees. They are intrinsic learners and that makes my job very easy. I am finding that the day is flying by and before I know it, it's time to pack up and head home.
Unfortunately, one of the hazards of being a teacher is catching everything! It's the third full week and I've already had a bad stomach bug and now I am on zinc and vitamin d daily while trying to fight a cold. Ugh!
Paige started middle school and has transitioned beautifully! Her social life is far better than mine and she is loving life. She is trying out for her middle school's 6th grade basketball team (the sixth grade team is an unofficial weekend league). I hope she makes it. She has her heart set on it. She is becoming burned out of dance, so we have let her drop a few classes. She keeps asking to take a year off from it all together and while I really don't mind, I am afraid they will hold her back and she won't be with her friends. We'll have to really think about that one.
My mom is busy doing projects around the house and is so involved in church. We have a few little weekend trips planned and that has her excited. We are going to Chicago in November to get in the Christmas spirit!
Hope to make it around to other's blogs soon! Until then, take care and have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend~!
