Monday our staff had the privilege to walk through our new school and see the progress. Here are some pictures of what we saw.
The stage in the cafeteria was a big surprise to everyone.
We thought we would have to do a lot of fund raising not
only for our new playground equipment.

This was our other surprise. We knew we were going to
have places to plant but no clue they would be so big.
It was like early Christmas for one of our kindergarten teachers.

My new classroom! The desks look a little funky;
but it's beautiful!

Our Library. Well this is just the front desk. There
were too many people wandering around so this was
the only shot I could get.

Conference room. The chairs look comfy

Principal's office but I doubt he will spend much
time there he is always visible.

Front desk in office

Our staff lounge, yay!

This weekend is my 1 year anniversary of becoming pet parent to Mocha. Even through the struggles of house training, she has brought so much joy into my life. I can hardly wait to get home from school each day because I know she will be waiting at the back door for me.

Saturday, October 24
Today I got this wild idea to trim Mocha's hair myself. I think it actually turned out nice. Of course the rest of the evening she wouldn't come near me unless I had food or treats.
She tolerated me messing with her hair pretty well but was not very cooperative for photography.
It's a good thing I blew off the bath for the evening, because then she really would have been running from me.

New School Progress

We are still on schedule to move to our new school the week of Thanksgiving (we will begin classes there November 30). Here are a few pics of the progress. Despite some of the negativity and pessimistic attitudes I am excited.

Long Time!

Wow! It has been so long since my last post. It was a busy summer and definitely did not slow down when the school year started. In my eight years of teaching this year's first week was the roughest I have had. I think my class finally began settling down about the 6th week of school, but it was short lived (still have some behavior issues to work with).
While all that was going on I also had some medical issues to take care of, but I think I have all that under control. God has definitely given me situations where I have had to learn to fully rely on him.
Praise Him!

Before take-off, but of course she didn't want to look at the camera (or she was trying to comfortable).

This picture was sooooooo funny. I couldn't get her to look at the camera so I had to turn it around as if I was taking a picture of both of us but I really only got her (thank goodness because I looked awful from being sweaty...ick!)
