So far...

BE prepared for a LOOOONG post!

Sorry for the lack of updates! I am LOVING Rocky Ridge!!! My teacher is great and the kids are all so sweet! I will have to scan in some of the letters they wrote me for y'all to read...they are hilarious! I had a big "Welcome Miss Schneider" sign to greet me when I walked in the classroom! So sweet!! I have 9 boys and 4 girls and let me tell you those boys are a hand full! They mostly have normal names, unlike my inner-city kids! Thank goodness!!! I do have one kid named Mooaweya (Moo-OW-e-uh). Yes, you read that right. His family is from Palestine...he is too cute! My cooperating teacher is great, she is very helpful and SO funny! All I am doing right now is observing and helping out as needed and I start teaching Language Arts next week. I have the whole unit layed out for me which is SO great! The book she gave me even has like a script of what I am supposed to be saying as I teach it...YAY! Anyway, my nanny job is going good too...it's very very busy, but Bayona is the sweetest thing ever. Poor thing is pretty sick right now, so grandma is keeping her!

My poor Lexie got spayed yesterday. They had complications during the surgery with anesthesia, though, and said she never would breathe right and were REALLY worried about her and said they she scared them that she wasn't going to make it. UM, really do you have to tell me that if she's okay now. THANKS!!!!! UGH! I took her in originally cause she had some weird lumps in her belly and it was very swollen. They told me that she may have a tumor or it could just be her hormones as she would probably be going into heat any day, but he didn't know. The vet biopsyed that area and said he would decide if he wanted to send it off when she came back to get her staples removed. But, she is home now and is very calm and quiet (not my Lexie...poor baby!) Anyway, now that I have talked y'alls heads off!

Read the letters below...they are great!!!! Haha! Kids are hilarious...keep in mind they are 8/9 years old. I hope you all are staying warm and doing great!! It snowed off and on here today! Love y'all!

CLICK ON THEM TO MAKE THEM LARGER TO READ! The bottom 2 letters are from the same person (it's 2 pages...she decided to tell me her life story! haha)

just an update...

Well...it's back to the real world for me! I have been super busy the past week since I started my nanny job and school stuff. Getting up at 5 every morning is getting a little better and is not as hard as I thought it was gonna be, but I would much rather be still asleep! Bayona is too cute and so much fun, but I feel like a soccer mom carpooling her around everywhere! At least she is somewhat easy to drag everywhere with me! She even cries when I drop her off at daycare and leave their house in the afternoon...I guess cause I keep her entertained? She's a cutie! Anyways, I had orientation this past week and learned a lot of overwhelming information, but i'm excited to begin student teaching. I start this Wednesday! I will let you know how my first day goes! I did talk to my cooperating teacher and she said that before Christmas break she had 14 students and that one moved away over the break...so I only have 13 students which is AMAZING!!!! Most schools have like 20-25 kids in each class! Anyway, things are good here and I hope everyone is doing wonderful!!

P.S. Leave me comments! I know y'all read this...so talk to me! :)
