You may have noticed that I have not posted in a while. Here is some of what has kept me away:
  • My camera broke right after we moved in here. I can hear the gasps as this is being read! I know! It is tragic! Don't panic for me too much, I started using Oreo's camera for now and it is a pretty nice one too. Mine will soon be in for repairs...
  • We didn't have internet for a little while and then we got internet but it was too slow to upload any pictures with. This issue is fixed now that we have high-speed again.
  • I have felt somewhat overwhelmed at times with all that is going on... just keeping it real here. :-}
  • Prioritizing... the need to have things put away and not live out of boxes. With a little one and everything being so new, this has taken a good deal of time. Later, in a different post, I will show you some pictures of the house and what we have done with it.
  • Setting up our classroom, schedules, routines, and agenda's for 2nd, 6th, and 8th grade.
  • Exploring and just spending time getting to know the area... grocery stores, library, post office, etc.
  • Spending time with Peanut Butter Cookie and doing the things on his to-do list before he headed back to Minnesota for school.
  • Scorpions... God's creatures... hmmm... God is good... scorpions are bad!!
