On the Blogspot Bandwagon

Well, I think I'm starting to get the hang of this blogspot thing, so here is the latest update in Jake, Callie, and I's life. I got my first teaching job in Crawford, Nebraska on January 5th. I teach 1st-4th grade general music and JH and HS choir. Overall, it has been very challenging. My students have went through FOUR different music teachers in the last six months and are having a hard time adjusting. Therefore, I am having a hard time with my classroom management, especially in the younger grades. However, I do enjoy working with the kids as each one of them is special and unique. With this new job, we did have to move from Bridgeport to Chadron and are slowly but surely adjusting.

We also bought a 2008 Chevrolet Impala yesterday. It's fire engine red and its name is Mater, kinda like ta-mater without the "ta." Okay so Jake and I like the Cars movie, but we also like our car!

Callie also started walking at 14.5 months. We NEVER thought she would. We really enjoy watching her grow each day. She also likes her baths and I think she can swim better than some of the 5 year olds that I have taught....and JAKE! She blows bubbles and "listens to the fishes." She also rolls from her front to her back with the help of the tub bottom of course.

Anyhow that is kind of our life in a nut shell. Until next time.
