Pictures to come :)

And Baby makes 4….

By now I’m sure you have heard either from us or facebook or through the lovely grapevine Katelyn is going to be a big sister!

We found out I was pregnant the first week of school (July 27th).  I wanted to keep it a secret until I was able to get in to see the doctor, but Rob said if that didn’t happen within a couple of days we weren’t waiting.  SO, of course I couldn’t get in to see the doctor as soon as Rob would have liked so we told our families and close family that weekend. 

I am almost 12 weeks (FINALLY)  I have been so sick with morning/day/night sickness it is RIDICULOUS!!!!!  I was never sick with Katelyn and just feel miserable everyday all day!  I am hoping it goes away @ 12 weeks (2nd trimester begins).  Katelyn and Rob have been so helpful with me being very limited due to feeling sick all the time.  Katelyn’s favorite saying is “be nice to my mommy baby” it is so cute to see how over protected she is over me.  Katelyn has an idea of what is going on; we took her with us to a doctors appointment recently so the doctor can explain and show Katelyn the sonogram.  After that appointment Katelyn thought she was having a baby! We quickly corrected that! :)  She also has told everyone at her school she is going to be a big sister and she really wants a sister. TOO CUTE!

We are beyond thrilled to be adding to our little family.  Our new little blessing is due to arrive April 2, 2011.

Time for Change

After being off for 6 weeks, it was difficult to get back in the swing of things at work for multiple reasons.

Reason #1:  I switched schools. I found myself quite a few times taking my same school route I have been for the past 4 years only to realize OOPS, WRONG SCHOOL!

Reason #2:  Completely NEW grade level!  I went from teaching middle school English to teaching 6th grade elementary!  WOW!  What am I thinking?????

Needless to say, It was a rough transition the first month of school!  I questioned my decision not to finish my 8 units on a daily basis.  But now that we are moving very quickly into month 3, I am enjoying every minute with my new SMALLER group of kids!  Let me back up for a second.  I was hired four years ago to teach English but needed to finish up some English units to be recognized nationally as being NCLB (No Child Left Behind) “Highly Qualified” teacher to teach middle school.  I completed some of the units, but then got really involved in school, had Katelyn, and the units just got put on the back burner… So after four years, my district said I needed to be moved to an elementary site, where I am NCLB “highly qualified” to teach.    So that’s that.  I am very excited to see what this school year has in store for me!  I see so much growth and potential at my new school, I think I may want to stay there and see some things through.

Happy Back To School!!!!
