Last Week

What a week, last week was... Wow, I'm kind-of surprised I survived! The first day of school was rough. Not near a rough as my first year of teaching...nothing could ever top that (I don't think). Last year, I had the dream class...they were wonderful...So, it's hard to follow that group. This group LOVES to talk, A LOT! Wow! They wore me out! But, I'm determined get them under control!

Last week was also my due date for baby #3. It's so hard to believe she'd be here now. My heart hurts, of course, but I know God has a plan for me and I'm just going to focus on being healthy and loving my life. Even though we don't had kids yet, we are SO blessed!

College also started last week! Talk about stress. I'm so thankful this is my last semester!

So to wrap it all up... last week was exhausting!!! Hope this week is a little better!

Back to work

Well, the day has finally the morning I have to report back to work. It's been a nice, HOT summer. I've been productive at times & very lazy other times. It's always so hard to go back to work, but I think deep down I'm actually ready for it. I like being on a schedule and having stuff to do. This will be a very busy fall because I'll be finishing up grad school. I'm so looking forward to having that behind me.

So, good-bye summer & hello fall!!! I'm ready for football, cooler (but not cold) weather, and falling in love with my new babies! In one week, the class of 2023 will start first grade!

Weekend recap

This past weekend was wonderful. My grandmother from Houston came up for a visit & it was so nice to visit with her. I love to entertain but it's hard this time of the year because the heat just about kills you. I don't know the exact number of consecutive days of over 100 degree temperature we've had, but it's a lot. It is hot! So hot that at 8pm it's still in the 100's. That's crazy. Texas always has hot summers...but I don't ever remember one this hot. Anyways, my grandmother left Sunday & so did my hubby for two weeks! :( I'm so sad he's gone...I don't know what I'm going to do without him.

And to top off being lonely for the next two weeks... this is my last week of freedom! Next week I go back to work. I can't believe the summer is over.

Back to work...

Well, it's not technically time for me to be back to work, or at least it's not mandatory yet. The past two days I've gone to my classroom to work on getting everything back in order and I'm very proud to say I've done a pretty good job. I'm usually all over the place, skipping from one thing to the next without getting much accomplished but this year has been different. I have family coming in this weekend so I know I have to be productive right now because I won't be up there until next week sometime.

It's been hard to make myself go up there but I know it will be worth it.

Just a side note: Today is my nephew, Gage's, 12th b-day!!! I can't believe he is 12 years old and going into middle school this year. He's also taller than me now, not that it takes much to be taller than 5'2". Time is flying by...I wish it would slow down.
