Life is Good.

Hey, y'all.  Just wanted to blog a little today.  We are home on a Saturday (rare during this time of year), which is lovely.  And though I have housework to be done and grad school work to do, I thought my little blog could use a little visit.

We had a big win last night.  It was our first area game of the season, so we're off to an awesome start.  My husband rarely smiles in a pic, so I had to save this one. :)

M got a chance to play with her friend N at the game.  He's so sweet and patient with her, but I know these days are limited.  After all, he's in "2nd grade" now (and days like this and this will no longer be cool to him).  But for now, I'm glad he lets her tag along. 

We just wrapped up our second week of the school year, and it's been great.  I think I love my job more and more every year (and I can't believe this is my seventh year teaching).  I have a much more diverse group of learners this year (I used to teach one course to mostly freshmen), and it's proving to be a great learning and growing experience for me.

M's preschool is going well.  She's not exactly the quietest kid in the class (translation: she talks too much), but I just love the way her teachers handle the classroom.  They are so patient and loving, yet firm and consistent.  This is an exciting year because she's learning to read.  I know she's more than ready because over the summer, I noticed her making the connection between letter sounds and entire words.  It's pretty cool to watch.

Grad school is going much better than last fall.  I'm much more relaxed and in control this time around.  I'm trying to take better care of myself and be more strategic with my time. I'm also running about nine miles a week, which I really think is helping to keep my stress level down.  I really hope I can keep it up.

So anyhoo, just wanted to pop in while I could.  This week M will be starting her little soccer class. This one involves the parents a lot more (I'd be out there with her), so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to take pics.  Maybe I'll snap one or two.

In the meantime, hope you guys have a good weekend and week ahead.  Be back soon.
