So for those that didn't know, I am teaching summer school for 3 weeks at Valley High. Valley High is an alternative school, and it has been interesting to say the least! A lot of my students have come from pretty rough backgrounds, from gangs, to foster homes, abusive homes, you name it! I am teaching Health which is a new topic for me and these students have surprisingly down quite well. For me it is amazing that anyone could fail Health and wind up in summer school, but I have around 110 students so it does happen. Overall, I have learned a lot from these kids. They have taught me that I am truly blessed to have grown up in a safe, and loving home. I have also learned, you really can't judge a book by it's cover. One of the nicest, most respectful boys in my classes came across as the biggest punk rockin' jerk. I am thankful for this experience, I have enjoyed it MUCH more than I ever thought I would!
My dad had to teach my niece Halle her roots. She is petting the horses in our field, she liked them 'til they got too close! You can see my dad thinks it's pretty fun to watch her get nervous. She love's grandpa's animals though! She kept reaching for him all day to take her outside!
This guy is amazing! My awesome friend got me a ticket to see him perform at the KBUL studio, there were only about 30 of us there and I sat front and center and his voice was amazing! Watch for him, he is an up and coming country singer and he rocks!!! And if you can see he gave me a personalized autograph and it TOTALLY made my day! Whew! I was star struck!
