A Little Character

Hey, guys!  Everytime I go to blog these days, the first thing I want to say is, "I'm SO tired."  But that would be a bit negative, so I try not to share that little tidbit.  But I'm breaking my own rule today.

I'm SO tired.

I'm having a hard time getting in bed before midnight.  And that actually isn't too different for me -- what makes it hard now is that I've been getting up a lot earlier.  I try to work out and get some things done in the morning before work (because there weren't enough hours in the day before to do everything), so my alarm clock goes off very early. 

As for grad school, I'm just a little anxious right now about a class that already seems over my head.  I've never claimed to be the smartest person in the world, but I've never really struggled with academics.  So it's a blow to my little confidence when I start a class and feel like I have no clue what I'm doing.  And this class basically has two parts -- one this semester, and one the next.  I know that in the next few weeks I'm going to work my butt off to "get" this class, but the unknown is what kills me.  What if I DON'T get it?

Anyway, enough whining (I did enough of that in my last post)... on to the positive stuff.

Work has been great. I love my kids -- getting to know them has been awesome. I'm staying caught up on my grading and all the other little things teachers do besides teach. Praying it stays that way. 

Morgan is at a super fun age right now, and I'm really enjoying watchig her develop into this person -- an individual -- with her own matter-of-fact opinions.  Her own fashion sense.  I have to literally pull clothes off of her sometimes in the mornings so I can put her school clothes on (most of what she picks out doesn't match at all).  I have to do a Morgan update soon.  I don't want to forget these moments.

Anyway, here's a post I wrote a couple of weeks ago that I've been meaning to publish:

Earlier in the summer, Morgan and DK went on a trip without me (I had to work).  I tried to find a way to keep from missing Morgan so much, so I pulled out my phone and starting snapping photos of the two of us.  Just something to make me smile while my little munchkin was away.

And then DK walked in and I fully expected him to make fun of my cheesiness.  I joked with him and asked him to join us -- and whaddya know, he actually did!  He hates taking pictures, so I'm pretty sure he did it to make me feel better about the two of them leaving - ha!

But Morgan picked her nose half the time, so the family shots had a little "character."  And I like a little character so this is what I made my phone wallpaper. It's still like this 'til this day. :-)

Don't worry, we're working on the nosepicking thing.
