I CANT believe that the last time I posted was Thanksgiving! And I was doing so good, too. The holiday was a good one; and I'm pleased to report that my turkey turned out really well! The downside is that we realized neither of us really love turkey, but it was a fun experience, and I'm glad no one got food poisoning.
Some 'highlights' from our Thanksgiving:
1. Washing the turkey in the bathtub.
2. I took the pie crust out of its container when I put it in the oven, and pumpkin melted all over the cooking tray. Josh came home with ice cream for the pie, and sadly had to turn back around and buy a pie.
3. I got to use our china. YESSSSS! The ENTIRE reason I was so excited to register for china for our wedding was so I could bust it out over the holidays.
4. Wood burning stove plus dinner for two gave us a lot to be thankful for (and a lot to toast too!).
And now, the reason I have fallen off the blog....SCHOOL! I have to say that none of my classes were particularly overwhelming this term, as far as content and homework. But the schedule I had to make in order for it all to happen was really crazy. I also was only able to attend one dance class a week for the past two months, which has been so frustrating! My practicum was definitely something that took up a lot of my time, but it was such an amazing experience, and only reinforced my desire to become a teacher. I fell in love with so many of the kids, and really feel like I made a (small) difference in their day. Anyway, it is finals week, and SHOCKINGLY I already completed all of my work for two of my classes (like two weeks ago!). I had a final this morning, then a final to turn in tonight (have some editing work ahead of me), then I'm DONE. So, so thankful. And, just to take a moment here, very proud of myself.
That's it for now; I really, really want to write about a couple craft projects I have going on, as well as all of our upcoming holiday plans, but I have to get this paper finished, so I am going to be strong and say goodbye!
