exhaustion has set in & it's only tuesday

Helllo exhaustion, I knew you'd be paying me a visit around this time.  It's that time of year -- the beginning of school -- and I need to get teacher conditioned.  I feel like my feet are about to dislocate at the ankles.  It's okay though because I can't feel them anyway. 

It's been quite a busy couple of days!  These sweet little 6th graders are venturing into the land of middle school, and boyyyyy are they a nervous wreck.  Remember those days?!?! They're actually adjusting quickly, and I'm spending my days being part teacher and part mamma, at least until they figure out what the heck an "A" day vs. a "B" day is. Another new thing comes along with teaching 6th grade -- brunch.  They officially call it lunch, but when they serve it at 10:45am I have a hard time getting on board with a turkey sandwich and putting my feet up. 

Anyway, I've got a GREAT group of students, and I'm counting my little blessings everyday...even the days I want to go to bed at 7:15pm.

T minus 16 hours 15 minutes

The countdown has begun for baby ???? Antoon!  This is how long until I find out if I'm going to be buying bows or baseballs for my new neice or nephew!  I'm getting so excited -- one thing is for sure though, Erin and Carey will undoubtedly make one BEAUTIFUL baby!   I'm just glad to be finding out so I can stop calling the baby "it." 

If it's a girl Lord help us all, she will be spoiled rotten to the bone.  Just in case it's a boy I've already sent up a few requests to the big man upstairs that he will like either golf or baseball, preferably both, so that Carey doesn't go into daddy depression.
