2 weeks since my last post...pathetic!!

Ok...guess I didn't start off too well...I'm pretty pathetic!! I was wanting so bad to succeed at this blogging thing...guess I'm a little too busy right now with subbing!! I'm loving my long-term sub job...I'm in an autism room with wonderful kiddos and wonderful staff!! I'm really hoping for a job at this same school next year...say some prayers for this to happen!! Anyway, we are into our 2nd semester as "real" parents with Steven going to school at Washington High...we are enjoying least this semester is a little less hectic (without marching band and football!)!!

I guess I'm going to start my Master's next fall!! I'm really wanting to be in a special ed room...although at this point...I'll take any classroom (well, maybe not any?!?!)...just hoping for "A" classroom next year.

I'll try to be a little more productive with this blog!!

It's Hump Day!!!

Well, this week is half over!! I'm really enjoying my long term sub assignment. It is in an autistism room. I feel like I've been in there all year. Everyone has made me feel really welcome and like a part of the group. I miss the DD Pre-K classroom I've been in at the same school but I get to visit with the teacher and her assistants daily. I just don't want these 6 weeks to end!!! I'm getting to use my sign language with one of the students. One of the students reminds me so much of Lindsay (was her para back in MO). Her mannerisms and all...I just love it!!

Anyway, keep checking back here for some more updates on the job front. I'm praying for a job at this same school for next year. God has a plan for me and has put me there for a very good reason...we shall see what it is!!!

Taking the Boys Back

Well, I didn't post all weekend because we were on the road. We (Damon and I) left here on Friday morning to take Daniel, Benjamin, and Nathan back to Brackettville, TX. We took a different route than usual and saw a lot of new and beautiful things. Anyway, we went through the Hill Country of Texas (Llano, Bandera, Kerrville, etc.). We dropped them off at about 10:30 Friday night with Doug and drove back to Uvalde, TX to spend the night. We decided that we would drive the same route home.

On Saturday, we drove back through the Hill Country and stopped along the way. One of our stops was at the Nimitz Museum of the Pacific War. We were going to take the tour but we were told it took anywhere from 3-7 hours to see the entire museum. We opted for the free portion, which was what we wanted to see anyway. Grandpa Carlton's ship has a plaque there. He and Damon (Dad) went for the dedication of the plaque. This is definitely somewhere we want to go back and visit when we have more time. We got back to OK about 10:30ish Saturday night. We were tired but had a great day, just the 2 of us. Steven spent the weekend here at home. He didn't want to go so we allowed him to stay here.
