Our week was fairly uneventful. I started school on Wednesday, and it was back to the reality of getting up at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday night I was a zombie, but by the end of the week, it wasn't so bad. I have an awesome class...11 boys and 4 girls. Another highlight of my year so far is having my first class from St. John's as 8th graders for Reading, as well as my class from last year for reading, too. They are both great groups of kids, and I am excited to have added 8th grade reading to my teaching schedule this year.

We had preschool open house Wednesday night. I think the boys will be enjoying their year. They made their way around the room, finding their cubbies, where they hang their coats and backpacks, and of course all the fun learning toys that Mrs. Mathys has for them. I can't believe they are going to be in school three days a week. I am excited, but feeling a little sentimental.

Derrick started his Christ Care Leadership training this weekend. He has four leaders to train right now, which means four Christ Care groups. He has been looking forward to this for a long time, and his first session went really well. His next project at home is to replace the shower in our master bath. We discovered a leak last weekend, and he tore out all the tile walls, as well as the base. It is down to the insulation now, and he has been figuring out how to best fix it. We have decided that he is going to re-tile the shower, which will be a job, but with all the DIY he watches, it should be cake! I'll update on that later!
