*knock knock knock*

Hello, lo, lo, lo, lo.....

Anyone, one, one, one, one.....

Hello, lo, lo, lo, lo.....

Yikes!  I have missed all my readers!  I have missed blogging!

I waited way too long between posts and to be honest, I'm a little mad at myself!

Oh where oh where to begin!

After I did the Dirty Girl Mud Run, I spent the rest of my summer anticipating the arrival of my niece Alivia. 

Alivia made her appearance after 4 days of teasing us!  Stubborn little thing already! 

Unfortunately I haven't seen her since she was less than 24 hours old.  They live about 100 miles away and it's been hard to get away.

I made her this little bear!  Her name is Alivia and she has Liv's birthday!  So much fun!
Proud Auntie!

A little bit of a cone head but she has a cute face!  Even cuter now!

Family of 3!  My brother was wrapped around that cute little finger a long time ago!  The poor sap!
More News!!
So you have probably gathered by now that I am a teacher.  For 2 years I taught 3rd grade and then spent 4 years teaching English as a Second Language to kindergarten and 1st graders.

This year I'm trying something a little different. I was invited by the ESL Dept. to pilot a program. 
I am teaching students in MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!!!!!

How I went from kindergarten and 1st grade to 6/7/8 is beyond something my mind can comprehend. 

Anyway, these students will have been in the country for less than a year.  They will have little to no educational experiences and/or large gaps in their education. 

I get students tomorrow, I'm starting out with 12, could be more, could be less. As students transition in and out of my class my numbers will change. 

Hopefully I will blog more, exercise more and eat less!
