Bullet style :)

  • Today I started my practicum hours for my ELL masters class at the elementary school where I taught last year. It was a little weird coming in after the bell had rung and students were already in class. Weird, but nice! I got to give my first language test to a kindergartner who spoke Arabic. It was a great learning experience and I loved it! I can't wait to have my masters finished and hopefully go back (one day!) and teach ELL students.
  • Mike, Evan and I are getting ready for a busy couple of weeks. We are headed to Indianapolis this weekend to see Dan, Amanda, and the girls. It's been about 10 weeks since we've seen each other and I know we are just as excited to see them as they are to see us :) We will get to see the girls play soccer and just hang out and have fun. I'm hoping to get some good cousin pictures of all three kiddos...we'll see how that goes!
  • We are also so happy to be in St. Louis next week. Mike has training downtown for detective stuff and I'll get to visit with family and friends! We'll also get to celebrate Mike's birthday and I'm hoping for some of this great weather to continue so we can be outside at parks or maybe even the zoo!
  • Labor Day weekend we are headed back to Clarksville to hang out and relax. The Indy Laughlins will be able to join us and we have lots of activities we are hoping to do including canoeing, swimming, fishing, mini golf, and just hanging out and having family time.
  • When we get back, we have Evan's 4 month doctor visit (Can you believe it will be 4 months already?! I can't!) and Mike will be getting ready to work Mizzou football games.
  • FALL is just around the corner! I'm excited for jeans, hot chocolate, comfy sweatshirts, football, leaves changing and their beautiful colors, and our trip to Florida at the end of October! What are you excited for during the fall season???

I know! I'm looking forward to fall too. See you soon!
