I'm Alive!

I am back to trying to blog. Carly started Preschool today and I am feeling nostalgic! She is turning "3" on Saturday and I often think she skipped right to being "13." She is going to the same school as Cole and he loves that his best friend, his sister, gets to share the excitement of the day. Cole and Carly go to Preschool Tues, Wed, and Thurs from 7:30-12:30. Vickie is finally getting to enjoy her retirement. I hope she is able to sleep in and schedule some appointments. Don't get me wrong, she never lets the kids slow her down. She takes them to all the places I usually don't...hair cuts, nail appts, weight watchers, the fair, and thats just a few!

Travis has begun working again 40 hrs a week. This is just the warm up for his 60-65 hr weeks during his busy season. His health is good and he needs to schedule a follow up cat scan but he is feeling "normal" 99.5% of the time. He is planning on going to Fort Bragg next weekend to go Abalone diving and the rest of the time just getting things ready for work. He is going to be working out of town this summer and I am hoping to spend at least two nights out of the week with him!!!

I am in my last haul of student teaching. This year has been HARD! I always thought that life couldn't get busier than when I had 20 units of undergrad but little did I know that Graduate school and an internship was pure insanity. I am not going to teach summer school this year so I am thrilled to have a break. I am going to continue to manage my parent's office and enjoy being a mother. Teaching jobs are very slim in Humboldt County and next year I am going to sub 2 or 3 days a week while working in my parents' office. Words can't express how happy I am to be downsizing. I could scrounge up part-time teaching jobs but I am exhausted and need the simpler routine of just doing two things instead of four! We'll see how long it lasts.

Life is going well and I thank God for our health and the family that I love.
