Life is busy right now. But very, very good.
School starts on the 7th and I don't feel ready to give up on summer quite yet. Did I tell you all that I am back with my same district, at the same school next year? My job description is slightly different but not so much that I am starting over. I am very, very grateful!
We are trying to adjust to our soon to-be-new life of me being gone during the day and Andrew taking care of Scout and the house. I will be teaching full time middle school, plus one night a week at Western. Andrew will be teaching trumpet lessons in the evenings and on Saturday. Goal for right now: figuring out what we need to do to stay on top of everything and make the most of the time that we have home together.
Scout has been getting this night sleeping thing down pretty good! Two nights in a row she slept 10 hours straight without even getting up to eat. Naps are getting better but have absolutely no consistency or schedule yet. Soon I am going to take some time and write down what we have been doing and how it has worked (and not worked!). That way I will have something to compare to when we go through this again someday!
I got my diploma in the mail this last week....it was very exciting, I officially have my Master's Degree!
I've been busy getting ready for teaching middle school and teaching a class up at Western. I know I will love doing both once I get started, but it's hard for me to be motivated to plan without knowing any of the students.
Andrew and I have been working hard to get organized. We got a new filing cabinet and have been cleaning out all of our paperwork. We have been going through all of our disks (burnt cds, programs for computers, pictures etc), and we have been trying to clean up and organize our computer. Our hard drive, 250GB, was almost completely full. We got an external hard drive, 2 TB, that I set up one day this week. We are nowhere near done, but it feels good to throw out things we aren't using and finish half done projects on the computer. I'm trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking again, so you will be seeing some finished pages coming up!
