School Has Taken Over My Life. I'm not kidding. Between going to school to get my master's and teaching school, I feel as if I might be the smartest I've ever been in my entire 29 years. I know it will pay off (or that's what I keep telling all my friends who think I've fallen off the map) that I'm putting in this much time my first year....next year will be SOOO much easier....if I say it enough it starts to be more believable.
My 6th Graders Are Legit. I feel like I've hit the jackpot when it comes to getting great students. The 100+ little gems I have this year are SOOO good and I'm really enjoying them (disclaimer: most days)!
Lunch before 11am Should be Illegal. One of the biggest adjustments of teaching young kids is our schedule. We eat lunch at 10:45am. I mean, really? 10:45am? I'm barely hungry for breakfast by 10.
I'm In A Bunco Group. And I'm finally awesome at it. I won a swwwweeeeetttt wallet last month for rolling 6 buncos in one night. Unheard of. I'm like a dice rolling phenomenon. Don't ever bet against a girl who won $2,100 playing craps her first time to a casino. Just sayin.
Still <3 the Hogs. Nothing new here, except that college football season has started and I'm in heaven. I am so excited for the Hogs this year, still hate the ranking system, and get overly mad if we lose. Basically, the same news as last year around this time.
Arkansas vs. A&M. Now I can say been there, done that. Went to watch the Hogs beat A&M (ugly, but got the job done I guess) at Cowboys Stadium. Let me just say, WOW that place is amazing. Had a great weekend with friends, and a LOT of pregnant people! I also made a few of us gals some HOGS shirts to wear...pics below
and here we are wearing these little doozies at the Arkansas vs. A&M game
LOVE this rug I made John and Liz as a little surprise
Friday night pre-game outing to Amelia and Mason's
We Have Pep-Rallies. And boy do 6th graders love a good 'ole yelling screaming dressing crazy pep rally. Of course, there is a theme every week and I stepped out for NERD DAY with my awesome mentor teacher Julie.
Countdown To Baby Antoon: Just an update, the official due date is January 10, 2012. Erin is doing great, but it's starting to look like Mitzi is going to have to take a second job as a greeter at Wal-Mart during odd hours to make ends meet after all the shopping for this baby is said and done.
I Still Have Cute Dogs. "Obvi" This is my new favorite saying via Snooki, who probably isn't smart enough to know the entire word "obviously," so she shortened it. I'm digging it. Obvi. Here are the aforementioned cute dogs.
