My apologies for skipping the blog last night. A friend of mine started a book club at her house, we’ve really enjoyed getting together and discussing Daring Greatly (it’s very good!). If I had time, I’d write my own thoughts about the book to share with you, but alas–I’m just too busy and tired in the evenings!
In case you haven’t heard, I’ll be teaching a class of three and four-year-olds at Eliza and Jed’s school this year! I’m really excited, but a little nervous. I’ve never taught below 5th grade, so this will be a brand-new experience! I really miss teaching, so I think this will be a nice way to get my teaching fix without having to go back full-time. I can’t wait to meet the little ones next week when school starts!
GaGa and Pappy are here for a visit, and the kids were thrilled to see them :-)
Yesterday morning, GaGa stayed home with Jed while I took Eliza to the Aquarium to meet up with Joy and her mommy. These girls had a BLAST!
In the car on the way there, Eliza said, “Joy is my sister!” I said, “No, Joy isn’t your sister.” Then she said, “Ok, Joy is my best friend!!”
(They were pretty exhausted by the time I took the pics below.)
Thanks so much for staying with us, GaGa! You are such a magnificent help and presence :-)
We awoke early this morning to take Jed to the hospital to get tubes placed in his ears. He was a champ, and the surgery was quick and successful! Hopefully, this will curb his frequent ear infections. Thankfully, GaGa is staying with us, so she was able to watch Eliza :-)
When we got home, Jed ate lunch and slept for two hours. When he awoke, he was cheerful and full of energy! So happy everything went well.
Yesterday afternoon, GaGa, Eliza, and I went to see a local production of Rodger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Eliza is in full princess mode right now, so it seemed like an activity worth trying. The theater was very nice and small, and we were on the front row next to the stage and musicians. We made it all the way to the end! Eliza really enjoyed it, although she was disappointed that a dragon never appeared onstage. The production was wonderful! We had so much fun!!
I have several more pictures from our trip to Southeast Texas that I will publish tomorrow. Stay tuned!
so there is no time to blog tonight. Check back next week!
