Sarah - The (Song-length) Movie

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8rxQPDzHQw

I was taking a video production class for my technology endorsement today. On either side of me, my teammates were doing adorable movies of their children...and it turns out most of the non-student photos in my Google were of Sarah - go figure. So here's her first movie...

So, Andy is in the final countdown - 9 months and counting. He finished both summer school classes and one of his two state tests successfully. He will have a couple of weeks to bum around or keep himself busy, just as I have to head back to the classroom.

Andy went rappelling into Keyhole (in Zion - looks like Subway) with Megan, Jocey, and her brother, AJ. They had a blast. Now we need to find a time for me to go!

I am excited to get back to the classroom - I find myself craving the structure after a while! Definitely hoping that it will be a calm year, with a prep, and time to keep exercising...

Post-school updates...

Okay, it's post-school for me,and Andy just started back for summer school. He's taking stats & an ed class, plus his content Praxis tests. I've signed up for 4 tech classes to finish my endorsement, and there are a couple of conferences I'm going to...so typically busy!

We did join the Summit Athletic Club, so we are trying new classes -spin yesterday! My bum is killing me! We are planning to ride the canyon Friday...

Andy's guiding tours for Mild2Wild again this summer on Mondays, but we're hoping to get a few camping weekends in...

I'm a wreck...

The clinic called Andy to say that Sarah did great overnight. I've been a wreck all morning...just as the doctor predicted. I just got a call from him, and Sarah did fine thru her surgery. My poor baby had wrecked both her knees. Pretty sure that visits from her favorite friends will be restricted for a long time....not so much juk─źng and jiving in her future.

I know....I know, but check out Sarah's Blog!

Hello! I know that I've been so bad at updating lately. We've been busy! There's been a lot happening, both at work and at home. Pretty much right now, everything's focused on Sarah. If you want more details, read her blog here. I just updated 5 1/2 years in the last 24 hours.

I know that people think I'm a little nuts about her, but she is our baby. My principal (an animal lover herself), told me the other day that not many people would take their 3 days of personal leave for their dog...probably true, but I don't think the district would let me take FMLA...ha! (have you ever done that paperwork - nightmare!)

Anyway, we are plugging along. Andy's doing great in school...we are almost in a 12 month countdown. This time next year, he'll be student teaching and then WATCH OUT world!

I'm still going a little nuts with 3 2-period classes each day, and really trying to make my HAL class worth my students' time. I may be teaching a class for the GT (gifted & talented) endorsement next year - EEEK!

We do miss you...I have joined the social media world (mostly as a teacher) so I have a Facebook and Twitter account. If you are a reader, I highly suggest that you open a goodreads account, and we can be book friends!
