Summer Fun Part I

I am extremely new to the whole slideshow thing, so here's my first shot at it. Not that great, but at least you can see my pictures, I hope! We've had a great 1st half of our summer - camping in the Hill Country in Texas, which was stinking hot, then the 4th of July with Edward's family in Houston, and his grandmother's 90th birthday party. It was good to see so much family!

Piano Recital Fun

Today was my spring piano recital! I just thought I'd post a picture of me and my students (minus 6 of them), so you all could see what an adorable bunch of kids I teach. They all played beautifully, and I had a great time.

My New Job!

I realize I haven't posted in over 5 months, and that I should play catch up, but there isn't really much to catch up on. This winter was pretty monotonous. Work, school, eat, sleep. . . The usual!

Our recent exciting news is that I was hired to teach Kindergarten in the fall at the elementary school I currently work at!!! I am VERY excited. It is hard to get a position in this district right now. They won't even hire anyone outside of the district until they have placed all the displaced teachers - those are teachers who work for the district, but their positions no longer exist and their contracts are still valid (there are at least 100 of them in the district right now). So for me to get this position is a BIG deal. It's all about who ya know. . .

That news will make this summer a busy one. Edward will be going to school all summer long. In June I will be attending staff developments up the whazoo and teaching piano lessons. Good times!Other than that, here are some random pictures from the last few months that show a little of what we've been doing:
