Since I've been gone....

Well, my blog sat quiet for 4 months.  While I was away, here are some notable things that happened:

  • Dave and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary.
  • I walked a 5k with my niece, Sarah.  Pretty sure she was mentally brushing up on her CPR skills as I huffed and puffed my way through.
  • After walking the 5k, I decided I'd like to try to run one.  I've been using this couch to 5K app on my iPhone and I love it!  I have to admit though, I haven't been out at all this week.  I had some serious school burn-out {due to co-workers, not my students} and I'm just taking the rest of this week to relax.  I'm sure I'm going to regret that decision next week.

My current mantras to go along with the Couch to 5K training:

  • We got a new car.

  • And this one might be the best one of all -  I started watching Duck Dynasty.  Oh my Lord, if you haven't watched this one yet you need to! Hilarious!!

  • On Sunday, I celebrated my 32nd birthday.  I had a great day spending time with my mom & dad, my brother, my friend Tasha, and my husband.
  • Yesterday was the last day of school for the staff. 

I’m sure there were other things that happened, but since I didn’t blog about them, I can’t remember anything else. ;o)

end of the year thoughts

I can’t believe this school year is already over.  It was such a great year.  I had the best kids … my favorite group to date.  I had a group of three…2 sweet girls and 1 hilarious boy.

Day-to-day things I’ll miss over the summer:

-          hearing the song Red Solo Cup sung out loud at random times of the day

-          group hugs

-          before school surprise visits

-          questions from my boy about the 1980s and 1990s because they were sooo long ago

-          and just seeing my kids every day and all the fun we had.

As happy as I am to see summer vacation, I was sad to say good-bye to my kids today.  But, luckily I will have the same group next year. J
