My first week of state testing as a teacher came and went--time will tell how the students did. Scores and proficiency aside, everyone has worked hard this year and I'm proud of them regardless.
While we haven't invested in a juicer yet, it's on the list for next year. Luckily, our neighbor and good friend has one and invited us over for a school night juice session! It still blows my mind that we have access to fresh, organic produce here and absolutely made my week to enjoy some fresh, yummy apple, beet, strawberry juice and good company. Parrot Curry is not to be excluded in that company. Those of you that knew me in high school know that having a bird sit on my shoulder is a definite first, and that I've come a very long way.
The sun has been back for a while, but we get more of it at night than in the morning. This past week the sun decided to peek over the horizon before school started! It was a welcomed arrival and makes getting out of bed a little bit easier. A little bit.
We are down to the six week home stretch! Five weeks until graduation, six weeks until the end of school and seven weeks until we will be back on the East coast for the summer. The next month and a half will be just as busy if not busier than the rest of the year and will surely go by just as quickly. With the temps rising and daylight extending, we hope to get outside even more and enjoy every minute of it.
Enjoy the warm weather and sunshine that actually warms your skin for us! Oh yeah, and Sam Summers, enjoy some of those for us too. And save us several.
