Math Conference = Romantic Getaway?

By the time you're reading this, Andrew and I are almost/are at Rock Eagle (in North Georgia) for a math conference!  Seriously, who would have ever thought that I'd be going to a math conference??

Andrew attended last year, as he's the head of the math department at his school, and really enjoyed it.  Now that I'm teaching kindergarten...and planning our math lessons for the team...I really thought it'd be beneficial for me to join him!!  It looks like there will be some really great sessions that will benefit me as a teacher, but more importantly, that will benefit my students. :)

Honestly, I'm so excited for all that I'm going to learn!  Plus, he and I will get to go away and take two days away from the stress.  Next week is going to be crazy for me, so even though we are both taking work with us, I'm looking forward for some time away from home to "relax!"

*Do you feel like you and your spouse have to plan random getaways? Or make "boring things" in to time together??

And just because...a picture of us in our teacher shirts and an elephant!

Long Weekends Are...

For those of you who are not teachers, you may not have realized that yesterday was Columbus Day.  As in, a day off!  Most of the time, long weekends are a time for me to regroup, refocus, and regain control of my life.  This weekend was just that!

This past weekend was full of...

...shopping
...relaxation
...family time
...embroidering
...grad school work
...lesson planning
...laminating
...family time
...concerts
...yummy food
...organizing

And what would a post be without a picture or two??  Sunday we went to Dad's first performance as part of the Atlanta Master Chorale.  I'm so proud of him--the music was BEAUTIFUL!




I am so thankful for an extra day off to play a little bit of catch up.  Did I get to where I wanted to be?? Pretty close!  Now, I just have to make it through today and tomorrow, and then I'm off to a math conference with Andrew on Thursday...I'm actually really excited about it!

#stophungernow

Andrew and I participated in a #stophungernow event at our church Friday night.  It was one of the coolest things I've participated in in a long time!  If you've not heard of the organization Stop Hunger Now, go do some research and find a place where you can volunteer.  Basically, a bunch of people get together, and divide and concur.  We packaged 10,132 meals in just 52 minutes!!!

They normally aren't able to tell us where the meals are going when we package them, but they already knew that our meals will be going to Cambodia to feed the hungry.  Each meal you see will provide SIX servings!!  They're filled with a vitamin, dried veggies, and rice!




 I'm telling you, if you've not participated in the before, go DO IT!! You won't regret it!

Our Little Family

On Saturday morning Andrew and I took Bud to church for the Blessing of the Animals.  It's such a special time for us every year, and I love seeing all of the other families who bring their animals, also. 

As I talked with everyone, and met their dogs, I was just filled with joy.  While we took pictures, someone said that they just "love" my little family.  I've got to say...I agree!  I'm just so lucky to have Andrew and Bud in my life!!

We had three people ask/tell us in church yesterday that it was time for us to start making some babies.  ha!  Of course, that's definitely on my radar, but for now...I'm content with these two guys! :)
