Its only Monday!

Would you believe me if I told you it's only Monday? I hardly believe it myself, but here we are. I am so thrilled, because I have a practicum in one of my classes, and today I spent my first day at a local elementary school. I spent a little time with a reading specialist, helping one little boy focus (not sure if that worked or not), then about an hour in a first grade classroom. It was a bit crazy because they had a sub who normally teaches middle/high school, and she made it very clear she was uncomfortable teaching younger students. This worked out for me, because she kind of just handed them off to me, but it was interesting to see The System at work. I feel like they liked me well enough, so mission accomplished for my first day (back) in elementary school. I even left with a pocket full of (clean) tissues and a broken paper clip someone gifted me.

This weekend was really nice; after a great dance class Friday (currently the ONLY day I am getting my own dance lesson right now due to school), I had a Twilight girls nice with my bestie, which was LONG overdue and really fun. I taught Saturday morning, then after a little yard work, headed off to Eugene, like I mentioned before. We missed seeing Jackson, since he was already in bed when we got there, but we had a great morning hanging out with them, then we came home and had a movie night. A couple weeks ago we watched Scream 1 and 3 (not sure why we've skipped 2), so last night we rented Scream 4...yeah. It was whatever.

So after my practicum and teaching tonight, I'll grace my husband with my presence around 8:30 or so. Whew!!! The great thing is that the sun is out, and I'm contemplating borrowing my mom's bike for the week. I'll let ya know how that one turns out.
