★What a week★

Good Evening,

As promised, I said I would keep up with blogging and at least fill you guys in with how my life is going.  This week has been busy to say the least, but as I have been telling my fellow colleagues that if you leave with unconditional love, then you know you are in the right place. My week started off pretty normal. I was given a new schedule to go by so this way I can split up my help between the first grade classes.

I think that it will take some time to get use to but I find that the schedule flows well. I did end up having to sub for a class a couple days which I have no problems doing. I feel as a teacher myself that I am growing, and being more firm when I need to be, but also maintaining love among the students. I also have found ways to improvise when some things ended up not going as planned. 

Brandon's birthday is tomorrow!!! I am so excited because for once I am not working on the day of his birthday. It was always like that so I missed out on going to lunch with him. I bought him his present which he ended up spoiling for himself. 😡 I had it delivered and noticed that "someone" signed for it, but wanted him to CALL the office to make sure that it was delivered as we had a few packages go missing, and he checked on amazon. I ended up going myself and finding out that it was indeed there, but the person who it said signed, did not really sign....that's a whole different headache.

Anyways, Brandon is always using his space on his ps4, so I bought him a 2TB hard drive for it. I told him he has to be 86 before that memory runs out. 

The holidays are coming up also, and I am very excited.  I use to not care for Christmas or any other holidays but this year I have been super excited. We have our tree up, but still have to add on our last bunch of ornaments.  We are also having 2 full weeks off from work. I am not sure if I am ready for that yet. I had Thanksgiving off too, which felt nice to spend with good company.  I am also excited to be able to buy gifts for people this year!!

In January, I am going to be heading off to Houston, Texas! I am going with an immersion program, and I am very excited because I am able to use this opportunity to grow as a teacher, but also to bring back what I have learned to my colleagues. 

Right now, I am just relaxing, and writing a snail mail letter and Christmas card to my penpal in Japan before I head off to bed. Tomorrow we are going to have dinner with Brandon's Mom. I hope you all have a great day/evening and keep shining!
