Just an update!

69 days- till GRADUATION!!! I cannot believe it! This semester is going by so fast...maybe because I don't feel like i'm in school anymore? It feels like I have a teaching job already, but then I remember oh wait, i'm not getting paid! Student teaching is going so well...I am so lucky to have gotten a good school and cooperating teacher. A lot of my friends got stuck with teachers who are rude to them or who are not letting them do any teaching. My kids are great...they wear me out, but they are so sweet! With student teaching and nannying going on, I just don't have time for a whole lot anymore...I am worn out!! I slept for 11 hours last night and still feel like I could sleep for a few more hours. This is the first weekend in a while that I can just lay around and it's so nice. I start my full day teaching on Monday for the next two weeks. I will be doing everything by myself...my teacher has already said to pretend she is not there and that the students are not to ask her anything. I am excited and nervous at the same time, I haven't taught math yet and we are doing fractions so i'm a little worried that they won't understand. We shall seeeeee.....!

13 days- till Spring Break!! I am so excited! We are going to the beach for the first weekend of spring break with a bunch of friends. Yay! I hope its warm...but I am not expecting it to be. Then I am going to hang out in Mobile for a few days and visit. A whole week of no school or nannying will be nice.

Anyway, i'm sorry for not updating more regularly, but I hardly have time for anything right now. I promise I will try to update again sooner rather than later! :)

Can you say busy!!!?

Wow! I haven't posted in a while! Sorry about that...

First, I want to say PLEASE leave me messages! I really really love hearing from y'all!

Okay, well student teaching is going great!! I'm in my 5th week already! It is really going by fast and I am surprised by how much I am loving it! I am teaching 3 lessons a day now and all the planning is keeping me VERY busy. Plus, don't forget I nanny before and after school most days. I have also been MIA because of the flu or something like it....I am just now getting over whatever I had 2 weeks ago. It was NOT fun! And now the stomach bug is going around school, so I am just waiting to get that one. The joys of being a teacher! My students are great and they keep my laughing all the time. They say the craziest things...I can't remember anything off the top of my head right now, but trust me I am writing these things down.

Anyway, I am so ready for summer. The weather has been a bit warmer up here and it is such a tease! I cannot wait to go to the beach and wear short sleeves........ughhhh only one month till Spring Break, so I guess that will do!

Going to bed!! I'm exhausted!

Love you all!!
