I had hopes that i would start blogging on a daily basis again starting with the new school year. it hasn't happened and it seems like I'm always busy or just too tired. The kids have been in class for a full week as of today. Nothing outstanding about this group, but it is still early. I am teaching three periods of Social Studies, one GATE Social Studies class and a Communication and Publishing class. I can't say I'm excited to be teaching again. I miss Amber and Izzy. We had a good Summer. Two is alot more work than one. Amber turned one on August 7th and Izzy turned three on July 28th. Having two wonderful daughters is alot of work. Debbie was gone to Florida the first week of school and both girls fell sick. Mimi helped out alot and saved me and Debbie returned home a day early. It was almost too much for me. Both girls are feeling better, but I'm feeling tired alot. I think I am lacking motivation. I'll get over it. The washing machine is broken and the repair man had to order parts, so that's fun. The front screen door latch broke and I am having a tough time finding a replacement that will work, but I haven't tried that hard either. One nice thing did happen, I bought a new Blackberry Curve this Summer. Hopefully I can blog and Flickr from it and keep up some posting. Darn I almost forgot, Amber took her first steps last week. She's still not too sure of herself but trying hard everyday to be a big girl like Izzy. My friend Ryan, the Art teacher at my school is blogging again. That is nice because at least one other person at school understands. The University of Redlands still hasn't told me when classes begin again for my Masters program in Counseling hopefully soon so I can get done quicker.
