1. We have looked at a couple houses within the last week. We love both of them. So the realtor is coming to look at our house on Wednesday and we're going to meet with him Friday to list it! Our family started to grow 9 months ago when we had our precious son, Rowan. So now we're running out of space and the last thing I want to do is get pregnant again and be house hunting! :P Now tell me, is this little dude not the sweetest? Of course, I'm biased. ;)
2. I ran my 2nd 5K yesterday! I only did one other one when I was a sophomore in college. I have NOT been training, whatsoever, so I was just wanting to finish around 45 minutes. I was PRAYING I wouldn't take longer than that, but that was my goal. As it turns out, I finished in 37:21! I was pretty pumped. Of course my teacher brain started thinking, "Ok, now I have a baseline and I will work to improve so that the next time I run one, I will have a better time! I just want to see growth!" :P
3. The biggest news of all...which is what has made my last week INSANE...it's official that I will be teaching 1st GRADE next year!!!!! :D With enrollment numbers being kinda crazy and our school having a low budget (we have GOT to get a levy to pass!), they had to do a little bit of shuffling. Well, lucky me, I get to move AGAIN. :P I taught 1st grade my very first year, so I already have a little experience. But honestly, after I got over the initial shock I became VERY pumped. And of course, I already have the first 8 weeks of guided reading plans done and made a book to correlate the Phonics Dance with Reading Street (so I know what hunks and chunks to teach when). I've already started creating spelling homework. :P I'm ***HOPING*** this move will get me into a more secure spot so I can stop moving around. But I truly am thankful for teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades (and being in a kindergarten room my first year in the district), because it has made me the teacher I am today. So get ready folks..the tables are about to turn to FIRST GRADE! :P And if there happen to be any of you out there who are PANICKING about my 2nd grade Reading Street packets...don't you worry! I want to continue to help you out, so I will be finishing ALL the 2nd grade stories. :) Whew...what a crazy time I have ahead of me!
4. Leprechaun traps. Enough said. I love seeing students get creative!
I hope y'all have a wonderful and BLESSED week!
