Another Week, Another Weekend...
The days seem to go by so quickly when I'm back at work - wake up, teach, go home, go to bed and suddenly repeat... and yet the week feels so long. I've only been back for 3 weeks! It feels like so much longer. This class is exhausting me, and just this year in general, so much is changing with the common core - which it did last year too... but it just keeps coming. I think it will all end up being good - but the front end is a llllllooootttt of work. So during the week I feel lucky to get anything, really anything even small and mundane accomplished, and on the weekend I tend to play catch-up. But this weekend we were all exhausted, and Todd was sick. My house was/is a mess, and I just didn't care about it. Sometimes couch is more important than clean. Also we got invited to friends houses Friday and Saturday - which was fun and nice and meals I didn't have to cook - but we definitely all stayed up too late and paid for it. This week is going to be even busier - Great Grandma and Grandpa are coming (yay!), trainings, committees, projects, and thinking about packing - oh, and did I mention it's supposed to be HOT again. I'm done with you 92 - get outta town.
|I feel the pain of parents with kids in school - it's hard to get that 20 minutes of reading in every night (especially when your child can't read for himself).|
|During Liam's bench time, Lina went and put her arm around him and told him "Good job, buddy!"|
|She sure is squirmy, but I managed to get some french braids finished and it was so cute it hurt.|
|Carolina wanted to join me during my "alone" time trip to Target. So I had to make it fun with matching Starbucks :)|
