The kids have all returned to school for another year of learning!! I am now the proud Mama to 2 Third Graders, a Second Grader and a Kindergartner!! The kids are all very happy with their assigned teachers, as am I. My Boy and The Countessa actually looped up with their second grade teacher, who we absolutly loved, so we are very pleased to now have her for third grade!
We have had a few bumps with getting into the groove of doing homework each night, but each day they get a little less resistant.
I am several weeks into the college scene and so far my only complaint is being the oldest person in each of my classes! I guess that's what OI get for taking day-time classes rather then night courses.
In my English class yesterday I met a young girl who it turns out is the cousin of one of my former roommates back in the mid-90's. Her exact words to me about him were "I don't talk to him much, he's MUCH older then I am!" Can you say...OUCH! He's my age!
I'm really loving my history course! I'm actually considering a History Major and pursueing a History Teacher credential. The only hesitation I have on that is it would put me teaching ages 13-18....I don't particularly care for that age group when it comes to teaching them. I'm still leaning heavily on an Elementary School credential....grades 2 or 3. We'll see. I have 4 more classes I need to take before I can enroll in the credentials program, so I have time to webble-wobble on my choise.
My Boy is in the full swing of football. He is currently a corner-back on starting defense, but his coach his considering moving him to a running-back on offense because he is the 3rd fastest kid on the team. I'm torn on this. right know he is in a relatively "safe" position...meaning he is less likely to gewt hurt. Becoming a running-back will put him in a much more dangerous position....after all he's the kid the other team is going to try and take down!!!
So far his team is undefeated. Last weekend we went up against a team that everyone felt was much better prepared then us.....we won 28 to 7!!!!! This wasn't just luck either! Our team rocked it!!!!
With school and football and dance with the girls my poor blog has had to take a backseat the last few weeks. I'm hoping that things, our I, get settled and into a better grove allowing more time for all the "extra" stuff I want to do...my blog being just one of those extras.
