New Blog...

So it is time for a joint blog! Josh and I both started separate blogs before getting married...BUT we have decided to just have one joint blog. Sorry for the family that may be a little confused by the sudden change. But really being married to Josh has been the best thing EVER!
So if you want to find us we will be at! Hope to hear from you so we know you found us!

It's true! I am officially a student teacher! I know I can hardly believe it myself! I will be at Mt. Logan Middle School in a severe unit for 2 months and then at Edith Bowen Elementary in a fifth grade classroom for the last two months. It is hard to believe that I am really done with college classes and now what remains is my student teaching. Even harder for me to grasp is the fact that I will have my own classroom this fall! Or the fact that I will have two bachelors! I feel truly blessed to have been able to go through the schooling that I have and the opportunities that it has given me. More than anything I am truly grateful for the fact that I am able to do something that I love. I believe that it is what I have always been meant to do. Thanks to those who have supported me, loved me, and encouraged me-especially when I wanted to give up. My family has played such a large role in it, as have many of my roommates, and some truly good friends. The Special Education Program not only gave me a great education but it gave me the opportunity to meet and become friends with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Thanks to my immediate family, my extended family, and my SPED family. Without you I could not have dreamed of making it this far!

Keeping on Keeping on...

So I am still alive...I know I have been extremely horrible at keeping this up to date! Josh and I have been doing really good. Josh and I both celebrated our birthdays and had a great time! Josh has been busy with work and school has been keeping me rather busy as well. I have been working with a wonderful teacher who has let me teach as much as I want. The class of third graders has been really fun and I think that they have taught me more than I have taught them. I will be finishing up my practicum this next week and then one week of classes and the semester will be over! YAY!!! I am really excited to start my student teaching in January. The pictures below are from when we did our family pictures with my side of the family I also added a picture of Josh and I with Monika and Steve when we went to Homecoming! We had a great time going to dinner and the dance with them. Monika and I try to get together at least once a week which can be difficult with crazy schedules like ours...Love ya Monika!
