I am grading a lot, but I have finally gotten to the point to where I am not bringing AS MUCH home....thank goodness!
My student's finished up learning about immigration and Ellis Island. In my class they researched a country one of their ancestors came from, then made a paper doll to go with it and I was impressed with how creative they got with their paper dolls! Even the boys really got into it, it was a fun unit to teach!
My nieces and nephews are still my very favorite...I look forward to seeing them all. It is weird because I come from a very spread out family. I have a teenage nephew, and teenage nieces, down to newborn baby Harper. My teenage nieces love to help with the little ones and it makes it fun.
---Also, I am amazed at how well kids can figure out technology! My 6 year old niece figured out how to do crazy pix on my i-pad, you should have seen how carried away they got! Halle, my 3-year-old niece joined in the fun as well!
---Grad school has been so much less stress this semester. I finish with the 8 week course this week then start up a new class----Strategic Com. so we will see how that goes. One year left and I graduate....Yay!!
---I am excited about President's day off! A 4 day week is wonderful...
----I am loving Pintereset probably too much. Usually when I should be doing other things...nope I am looking at Pinterest to distract myself.
----I am getting into the Bachelor, we go to my friends house every Monday night and I hate to admit I am sucked in. And if you are too, all I can say if he chooses Courtney I am going to scream! (Pathetic that I have such an opinion about it).
---My favorite sport is over....Football, but the Jazz are keeping me entertained and I have gone to 3 games so far.
---Overall, I can't complain. I am keepin' busy but not too stressed:)
---I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
“Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!” -Oscar Wilde
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!
