We have started school and become extremely busy. John has been balancing school (including tough classes like Organic Chemistry and Physics) and ROTC responsibilities (including waking up early to work out 3 days a week from 6-7 and going to weekly labs) along with the debate team. He has been doing well in all three. He even placed 3rd and 4th in his first debate meet!
I have been balancing classes with practicum and everyday errands and responsibilities. Practicum is where I am in the classroom helping Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7:30 until 2:30 and then I rush to class. Class is from 3 to about 6 or 7, and then I continue with my homework/dinner/etc. Needless to say, it is busy! My favorite part though, is being in the classroom. I don't enjoy the busywork or just talking about teaching, but I love the real experience I am getting! I have been in a 5th grade class the last several weeks and this week will start in a 1st grade class. This should be a compeletely different experience, I can't wait!
For my anniversary present, I got what I have wanted for a while--a pet! We "adopted" a pet bunny and we named him Rocky (because of how he "boxes" your hand away if you stick your hand in his cage). He has gotten used to us and we've gotten used to him, and he has a spunky personality. He is also a wonderful snuggle-bug that will just sit with me for long periods of time and let me pet him. He likes to go on walks, although he doesn't so much like his leash. It makes for a funny sight taking a bunny for a walk on a leash!
Lots of things have been going on the last several months and I apologize for not keeping up with my blog as well as I should have. Hopefully I will get back into the habit and continue to keep you guys posted in my online journal. :)
