Oh goodness, the last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind! I haven't really talked about this on my blog, but I am, once again, a student. I am doing a MAT program. It's a year long, super intense program that will end with a masters in teaching AND teaching certification.
Because of this, life is looking a whole lot different around our house these days. Jack started kindergarten and he then stays for aftercare four days a week. Thankfully, he is loving both kindergarten and aftercare! Gil goes to Jack's old daycare. It's takes a tad bit more driving, but we just love it and are so glad that Gil is there. Bech is doing his job but having to do a lot more parenting duties, like dinner, solo bedtimes, dropping off kids at daycare.
And I have the craziest schedule of all! I am at my internship (it will be my student teaching spot next semester) M/W/F. Tuesdays, I am in class from 8:30 until 7:30 at night (with about 2 hours of breaks in between). Thursdays, I only have class from 4:30 - 7:30. It's exhausting and insane!
But we are making it! And it's fall (MY FAVORITE) so we will soon be doing all of the fun fall stuff on the weekends.
A couple of photographs to close this post out:
I snapped this picture tonight during Redeemer Kids. Jack just adores these two older girls at church, and they are sweet to him. Seriously, he is such a ladies man. He already has a girl in his class sending him home with pictures and homemade books!
Bech took Jack and Gil to the dentist solo. It was Gil's first visit and he did great! Bech was so sweet and took pictures for me. It is hard to not be sad missing these little things--dentist and well visits, school field trips--but it helps to have Bech keeping me in the loop.
The weekend before school started, we headed 2 1/2 hours down south to Brattleboro to visit the Lugos and help celebrate Ashley and Theo's birthdays. We had a blast. It was a fun and relaxed weekend--perfect ending before starting the craziest semester ever!
So that's why I've been MIA lately. I have a blog post in the works with my August books...I'll get that up soon.
