It has been a little while since I updated, but I thought I would give you a run down of these last couple of weeks.
1. School started up!
I have a new group of 7th graders. It has been a lot of fun getting to know them. They are definitely drastically different than the group before them. So far so good this year. I am enjoy getting to hang out with them everyday and I can tell this is going to be a fun year. (Someone remind me of this later please!)
However, with going back to school comes the extra activities and meetings. We had back to school night so we could meet parents. It was a super long day and I was exhausted already!
2. Another wedding!
My cousin got married last weekend in Lincoln, NE. Because of the flooding along I-29 I had to take the back roads which took me 4 hours and I had to leave right after school on friday. It was a fun weekend to see family and some old friends. Turns out the couple and I have a lot of mutual friends. She was beautiful and so happy!
(Sadly, I forgot to take pictures at all during my time there. But I did manage to get some sweet pics from the drive home!)
3. I ran a 10K race!
I had to leave the reception early to drive back to KC on Saturday night so I could run on Sunday morning. Lets just say I made quite a few stops in order that I would stay awake!
The race went really well actually. I ran a personal best of 1:04:19 and I got my first running medal ever! It was a beautiful morning and as exhausted as I was it was fun. I am sure if I was running with some other people it might have been more fun. It wasn’t too bad really. The only part of the race that I had trouble with was a .5 mile incline up into Westport, after that it was a breeze.
(Again, since I was alone, there was no one to take a picture of me! Sad day!)
4. I am now a student again!
I started my classes for my ESL certification! It really isn’t that weird being back in school, mostly because I have had several chances to take classes through my district in the last 2 years. However, I am taking 2 classes this semester and last weekend I had to finish a 5 page reflection paper, a how bunch of reading and some discussion board posts by midnight.
It is fun though getting new books and writing papers again. Just a little bit.
