Spring Break

Aside from spending my days with hilarious teenagers, having long holidays is best part about being a teacher. The past few weeks of school have been long and sometimes stressful (even though teaching gym is probably one of the most fun jobs ever). It was like the kids were getting restless in the winter months. I have 4 girls that are total drama. They are constantly starting fights with each other or other kids. They spread rumors and say mean things. They always come to me with their problems and the counselor and I were getting really sick of it. Last week we had had it so we gave them an assignment . . . they had to watch the move Mean Girls and write a 1 page report about it! It was the counselor's idea and I fully supported it. They have been doing much better already. I resisted my urge to quote lines to them after they completed the assignment. Shouting "I don't hate you because you're fat, you're fat because I hate you!" just didn't seem right.

Needless to say I was ready for my week long break! We kicked it off by going to the Fun. concert last Saturday night. Nate was amazing! I love his voice. The whole concert was a dance party.

Love this song right now

The last 3 days I have been staying out at my mom's (5 minutes from our new house) trying to get some stuff done before we move in (a week from Saturday!) I bought a bunch of necessities for the house and even refinished the kitchen table we found at the DI for 35 bucks.



 I love the sun bleached stain I used on the top. It turned out way better than I thought!

Tomorrow we leave for Portland and are so excited! I have never been and I'm really excited to see my Gentry.

The only hard thing will be leaving our Remy at home with my family. I am way more sad about it than I thought I would be.

Wouldn't you be sad too?
