Summer fun.

Hrm. I should update this, yes? Yes. So, what has happened in two months?
  • I worked out a lot. I signed up for two weeks of unlimited boot camp classes where I take my weekly classes [DrivenFitnessNow.com]. I loved it, and did it twice.
  • I won third place in my age group in the local 4th of July 5k. Yeehaw!

  • We barbecued with our friends the Martins (who moved and we really miss them), and waited a looong time for the Sun & Sail Club fireworks show. (Someone knocked over the display and they had to set it up all over again.)
Cuddling the scared fur children

  • We went to the Orange County Fair with the Martins later in July. It was a blast. I rode the Ferris wheel for the first time, and it was my first time doing a super fun photo booth.

Robert got his wish to go through a fun house

  • We went camping with our friends the Morrissettes and their two girls, adorable and adorable. This needs to happen again.

So proud of our first tent
  • We planned and bought Harley and Maya's Halloween costumes. To be shown in a later post.
  • We went to a concert for the bands Train, Gavin DeGraw, and The Script. We learned we didn't like The Script as much as we thought we did. I liked Gavin more than I originally did, and I got to touch Pat Monahan, who is really short.

  • We photographed an open house, family photos in a bathroom, and have other events lined up which we're excited for.
  • I interviewed for and was chosen to be the newest English teacher at our local high school. So. Excited. What's great about this is it's really an answer to prayer. I gained and was passed over a teaching job last year, which was for 7th, 8th, and 10th grades, where I had to travel to four different rooms. I was passed up due to pure favoritism. Although it was a big letdown, it mentally and emotionally prepared me for this year: teaching 10th graders at an even better school, in my own classroom, down the street from where we live. Amazing. God is good.
I'll post photos of my classroom when I get the time. G'night!
