First week back!

My kiddos started back at school on thing I know it's Friday!

Of course it didn't feel like it went by that fast during the week. Actually it felt more like the longest week ever. We spent the week going back over the rules and settling back into routine! I got another new student on Friday, so I am looking forward to getting to know her more! First impression: she is beautiful and loves to have my undivided attention!! If only I didn't have 19 others that wanted my undivided attention too, we would be golden!

This past week we were studying reptiles, amphibians, birds, and fish. I got the great idea to go to the Outdoor Learning Center and borrow a toad and a snake for the week for the kinder kiddos to observe.

This is Mr. Snake in the back of my car on our way back to school! The whole time I was driving all I could think of was; if I get in a car accident and the snake gets out I am going to FREAK! No he wasn't poisonous, but a snake bite is still gonna hurt like hell!

Mr. Toad was a lot less threatening! He pretty much stayed hidden in his cage.

Friday night I met Brad in Dallas to eat dinner at Mi Cocina with a bunch of friends. We were celebrating one of Brad's coworkers and friends, Nathan's birthday!

Lauren and I while we were waiting on our table!

Saturday night Brad and I went to celebrate the birthday of another friend, Shaun. He is in our couples Sunday School class, so we went to their apartment for a little bit to hang out!

The rest of today will be spent relaxing and getting ready for another busy week ahead! It was 70 degrees out on Friday and now we are back in the 30's. Needless to say my slippers are on and chili is cooking in the crockpot!! mmhmm

Stay warm wherever you are!!

I went back to work today... was just a teacher workday with no kids...

...I am in my pj's ready for bed already.

Apparently being lazy and lounging around the house for days really doesn't help with going back to waking up early and standing on your feet all day!

Tomorrow my 20 kindergarteners come back and I say.... BRING IT ON!!!

Early bedtime tonight!!

I was reading a friends blog about all the things she has to look forward to this year and I thought what a great idea! You can read her blog here.

Here is what we have ahead of us in 2013:

*spring break in March! I don't have any plans yet, but a week off work is always something to look forward to!
*a cousins wedding in Austin
*an "anniversary" cruise to the Caribbean with great friends!!
*our 3 year wedding anniversary!!
*the wedding of a couple from our Sunday school class
*gaining a "sister" in July!! My brother-in-law is marrying one of my now best friends!
*another wedding in August for a family friend in Nebraska!
*a new school year with a new group of kinder kids!

I know that we have many more things to look forward to in 2013, but only God knows what those are!!

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Heart of Dallas Bowl

We started off the new year with a WIN!! Our OSU Cowboys beat the Purdue Boilermakers 58-14 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl game at the Cotton Bowl Stadium!

It was freezing cold; I'm talking shivering uncontrollably the entire time cold; but still so much fun! It was a great way to end the season plus we got to eat a famous Texas State Fair corndog!! Yummy!!

Oh and I forgot to mention we also saw Dez Bryant on the sidelines cheering on his alma mater!! Go POKES!!!!!
