I think I survived midterms!?!?!?!

So my midterms were Monday and Tuesday of this week so now that its Wednesday, I finally feel like I can breath again. What a stressful weekend! Luckily I was able to throw some fun breaks into the weekend, like dinner at the Cedar Crest with my hubby, meeting my mom's new beagle and having tea with the ladies. These three things got me through the weekend. It made me realize that when I'm a teacher, I can't throw myself into my work and hope to see June. I need to make these little activities part of my life or I'll get burned out real fast.

Speaking of teaching, I've heard nothing but great compliments from the school I'm observing in and my advisor. I'm starting to feel like I can actually do this! I can be a teacher!!!! How crazy awesome is that?

Today is a sad day for the family. The Seedlings (me and Doug) will be going to his cousin's funeral today. This is his second cousin that past away this weekend and was suppose to be the best man in his brother's wedding this upcoming weekend. So it is a hard week for that side of Doug's family.

I think that's about it in terms of updating. This weekend I'm attending my first English teacher conference in Nashua, NH so I am pumped. I'm hoping to have the guts to do some networking and get lots of great tips for my classroom.

Steve and I have you guys and Doug's family in our prayers. :( I'm sorry to hear that news, let us know if there's anything we can do for you guys.

Good luck at the teacher's conference this weekend! Can't wait to hear all about it. :)

What a freakish turn of events for Doug's family. I hope they'll still be able to celebrate the wedding, and his cousin's life!
