Well it took about a month for all of our computer systems to get back up and running, but the newest addition to our family has been fantastic to me. The iPad, I love it! It treats me well, and goes with me everywhere. It already has become like family to me :)
In the past month in the classroom we did an inquiry unit. This means that all 23 of my firsties were researching, annotating, text coding, and preparing for a presentation on their own. I was just there as a guide, and it was SO much fun! Our semester ended on the 16th with a snow themed winter party. There should be drinks provided to first year teachers during this party! And I wasn't even in change! I get to see their cute faces again on the 3rd. It's been a good break (and well needed). And now I can go back to them forgetting all the things that frustrate me, and be reenergized.
Christmas with the Newley-Whits was fantastic! We really went all out for each other. Our tree was o er flowing! We had so much fun too. We spent eve with my parents and grandma, day at my parents house (including a bucket of margaritas, a bottle of patron, and a hot tub, yeah-my parents know how to party.) the next day we went up and sent the day with the rst of my family. It was at this time that my aunt and cousin announced they were expecting! My aunt has been trying for almost 10 years! I am so excited! And my cousin has been married for 3 years, and her sister had a baby a month or so ago.
Now for the important stuff, some pictures...... Now if only I could figure out how to add them from my iPad....(help please)
