Ok. I really wanted to get going on this blogging business and I'm failing miserably. It's been over a month since I've posted! Shame on me!

I have a longer weekend then usual so I suppose I could catch up quickly on here. School is going well. I'm greatful for what I get to do each day. It's the craziest, most stressful thing in the world but I am continually reminded of how I truly mold lives each day. That's huge. It's important and the responsibility of it all weighs on me heavily at times. It's hard to believe that it is already practically mid-October. We went on a field trip to the Struthers Fire Station today. Of course, it rained and we couldn't walk. It seems that every fieldtrip I've gone on in my short career, it has rained. A parent-helper who went on the trip with us asked me, at least twice while she was with the class and I, "just how do you do it?" and "wow, you must be so patient, I don't know how you do this". I know teachers get that alot, especially elementary teachers, but it just struck me again today that not just anyone can do what I do each day. That's something I know, but don't think about often. I love my job. It's madness, joy, anxiety, contentment, stress, and every other possible emotion rolled into one.

No big plans for this weekend. It was nice to see Alissa, Tracey, and her baby last weekend. I can't believe Tracey's a mom. Her baby is beautiful.
I'll be working on 3rd grade stuff and grad school stuff this weekend. I really want to keep pushing forward so I can move ahead on this Master's degree business. It's always something...
