First Summer Trip

We are getting ready to go on our first family trip for the summer! We just bought a 5th wheel, and we’re going to take it up to my sister’s and go hang out. It’s not going to be a HUGE trip, but it’s still going to be a vacation, which we all need. Mike and Tara and the boys will be taking their jeep and we will take our Rhino and we’re going to go play outside! I’ll take lots of pictures and update everyone as soon as we get back.

Here it is...

Well, it's finally here! The last day of school! These days are always a little bitter sweet to me. On one hand, I am going on a very long vacation and I get to spend everyday with Hunter! On the other hand, all my students are moving up and most of them I won't see again. I'm moving to a new school, AGAIN! (At least i'll be in the same district!) But now, I won't get to see all of my former students and how they act in 7th grade. The good news is that some of them are also going to Magma Ranch next year, which is where Keith and I are both going to be. I'm incredibly excited to be going to Magma Ranch. I will be teaching 5th grade. The good news is that I get to teach the gifted cluster of students, which I have never had the opportunity to do before. I also get to be the team lead! I'm very excited about that! So many good things are happening next year. I am going to miss my students incredibly bad! I'm so proud of them for growing up and making it to the 7th grade. I wish them all the luck in the world. I love being a teacher!

Summer Break

Yesterday was such an incredible day! We went to Roosevelt with Jay and Kresta. We all put our lifejackets on and jumped in the water. Hunter even got in and loved it! At first he was a little scared because the water was a little cold, but eventually he got used to it. Then, we got back on the boat and watched Kresta wakeboard. I really want to learn how to do that! If I tried right now, I am certain I would probably severly injure myself, but I want to get into shape and learn this summer! I would be so proud of myself if I could do that. Yesterday was just a small glimpse of how great our summer is going to be. I am pumped for summer break! Only the rest of this week and then I am done for 6 weeks!
Keith started Prescott College a few weeks ago and I am so proud of him! He is almost done with school. Just a few more semesters to go. I am so glad that we made the decision to move back here and let Keith finish school. It was exactly what he needed to do. He is going to make a really wonderful teacher! I have also made the decision to got back to school and get my Master's Degree. I'm a little nervous, but I'm also very excited. I've always wanted to, but I needed a little break from school. Now just feels like the right time. I'm getting my degree in Educational Leadership along with my principalship. We'll see where this will take me!

Hunter's Getting Big!

I just wanted to share this video with everyone because it brings me joy every time I watch it! My little boy is growing up and he is so smart. He knows when I say it's time for bed, to go to his room. He knows when he finds something on the ground that is garbage, to go put it in the garbage. When I tell him to pick up his toys, he does! He also absolutely loves to read books. He will sit by himself and open a book and just turn each page, one by one, talking out loud, just like he is reading it! It's awesome. This video happens to be the first time he did a somersault. He is so adorable!
