Back To School

So I started school back up this last Monday! I wasn't sure I was quite ready to go back to school yet, and boy did I not know what to expect! I figured I should blog about it so I can look back to remember and laugh... (hopefully) :)

So the hottest week of the sumer also happened to be the first week of school... and our school doesn't have AC. So if you can imagine, 98 degrees outside + 24 first graders + a pregnant teacher = a LONG week! I bought my kids bottled water to keep in the classroom, but there isn't a whole lot you can do when it is so hot! I am looking forward to the temperatures going down a little bit this next week so hopefully my kids can focus a little better, and so I can sweat a lot less!

I had 2 kids throw up, 1 go to the in-school suspension room for being violent, and 1 parent upset with me and threatening to sue the principal after her child got in trouble for being dishonest (long story, I will spare you the details haha). It has been quite the interesting week!

Now I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer! I also have had some great moments this week as well!! My kids love to ask me about my belly and I even had one ask me how my baby was going to come out... haha it was hard not to laugh at that one! After the summer you forget how honest these little kids are! It is going to be a great year and I am so excited to get to know my kids better! Here are a few snapshots of my room on the first day of school!

Rounding Up Summer

My mom and dad took a little road trip this month! They went and visited my sister and her new adorable baby, Henry in Minneapolis! From there, they came to spend some time out here! It was amazing to have them come visit! We ate and made lots of yummy (comfort) food, they helped a TON with my classroom (with Katchie too), gawked over my ever growing belly, we went to a concert, Salt Lake, and Park City, and just had fun! It is a bummer having them far away, but it is sure nice when we get to see them! Thanks for coming to visit Momma and Biggie T!! Love you! Here are a few pics!

Baby's first concert!! We took my mom and dad to see Tim McGraw at Usana Amitheatre last weekend and it was such a blast! The belly picture was taken at about 22 1/2 weeks! (haha I guess I was REAL excited)

This last Saturday we went to Park City with the family! We were walking down Main Street and saw "Loosey the Moose" and I had to have our picture in front of it! :) This is at about 23 1/2 weeks... not sure if you notice or not, but my belly grew quite a bit in one week! This feisty girl is growing fast!!
