We had our window open last night and this morning I felt like I was camping. It was chilly, but my blanket was warm. And I could smell the fresh air in the room. I loved it! Now I don't have to worry about being bit in the mean time!

A path of creme soda... his favorite!
He hadn't seen our ball picture yet, so I put it in the center of the heart.
They got in to town arond 1:00, but then had to unload, wash the trucks, and get stuff put away. He finally got home at 5:30. I was waiting at the door for him! After a much needed shower, we went out for supper and ice cream. We were back home by 7:00 because Jay was crashing pretty hard. He wanted to put a movie in and fall asleep for the night. This is as far as he got.
On Saturday, my dear friend Angie, her son Noah, and I took a picnic lunch to the park. We wanted to get out and enjoy the sunshine for awhile. We packed ourselves a lunch, layed out a blanket and enjoyed our time together.
Mamma duck was very protective of her babies. She wouldn't let any of the big ducks come close. We had to spread the food out so they could all have some lunch!
We had a great afternoon in the park. I wish we could have stayed longer, but I was anxious to get home as Jay was coming sometime in the afternoon!

I've really been enjoying my time in the second grade classroom the past couple of weeks. I have a very active class, but that's great for me. I love to move fast and get a lot of material covered. They weren't used to such a fast pace from their old teacher, but we're starting to get on the same page. They are learning my way of teaching and I'm getting better at slowing down.
Here are a few pictures of my little ones!

The class I am taking is American Literature, from the Civil War to now. YUCK!!! I hate reading and I don't like interpreting authors when I don't have a clue what they are saying!! The good thing about this class is that a lot of it is open discussion. We get participation points simply for posting. I'm good at throwing random thoughts up there and asking questions. I'm not worried about that 20% of my grade. But the rest of it... I guess I actually better read!
If nothing else, it helps time pass in the evenings as Jay is out in the field. My class gets down the end of June, so I'll be half over before Jay gets back home.

Noah was feeling left out, so he decided to dig through the make-up bag and see what he could find! He liked opening the lip stick, but luckily managed to never get any on him.
