School's Out Forever!

Sing along....

School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces
Out for summer
Out till fall
We might not go back at all

I've been singing this all week!

For me, all of the above are true (except that school has not been blown to pieces).

School is out! For those of you that don't know, I am not returning to the classroom next year. In my sister's words, 'I'm retiring.' Unlike many of my teaching friends, this is by choice and not by pink slip.

This year was miserable in many ways. I won't go into the details, but I decided it was time to quit. I have found another job. I will be teaching/tutoring at a Sylvan Learning Center here in Montgomery. I have already started tutoring, and I really enjoy it so far. I just have to brush up on my Algebra II and Trigonometry skills. I will also be working there this summer. But don't worry, I'll get off by 12:30. This still allows plenty of afternoon pool time.

Hopefully I will return to the classroom sometime in the future. For now I'm off to celebrate with some type of drinky-drink.

Happy Summer!

You May Now Kiss the Bride

This weekend Nick was in a wedding for one of his best friends from Madison. We had a good weekend with friends and family, except for Nick's stomach bug. He had to miss the rehearsal dinner, but don't worry, I still went! He started feeling better on Saturday, and he was able to enjoy the day with his friends. Here are a few wedding snapshots!

The bride and groom leaving the church (the groom is a fire-fighter).

The wedding party with Mr. and Mrs. Travis Armstrong!

Scott, Jeremy (Nick's brother), Travis the groom, Nick, LD. All these guys were in our wedding too!

Jason and Lauren (Nick's sister), Cindy and Darwin (his parents), Me and Nick, Brynn and Jeremy.

Weddings are always fun, but this weekend also made me think of our wedding. If I could, I would do our wedding week all over again! Monday, May 17th will be our 2nd anniversary!

Sorry for the poor picture quality. Scanner doesn't work to well.

Happy anniversary Nick! I love you!

Two and a Half More Weeks

2 1/2 more weeks of school!

Then I will have my sufficient pool time. Reading time. Rest. Less stress and frustration.

I can have more days like this with Stephen Small and his mom.
Just check out how much this little guy likes the pool.
Come back soon!
