i always start my posts the same way...
"yes, yes it has been too long"
"i'm still here"
"i've been busy"
and still...the first few eye-rolling words never seem to motivate me to update more regularly.
but thank you, to my faithful [few] readers who maybe keep checking back. or maybe only remember to check once i put a link (and friendly prod) on my facebook page. to you i say...gracias.
i have been staying busy. honest. tyler's nearly two months into UPT (undergraduate pilot training) and i am nearly two months in to being a lonely housewife. (10-12 hour days with a chat or two during supper and then hubby studies until bedtime. and as bored and missing him as i am, i'm not the one working and studying so hard...i can't imagine how he's doing it) however, you could say that i am a lonely housewife with a twist--i have been student teaching at a local high school up the road. and i have been having a blast with it. kids say the darndest things indeed... and it certainly applies to high schoolers. my schedule is 7:30-3:30 and when i get home, i usually try to get cleaning, laundry, cooking, grocery shopping or schoolwork (clearly not this blog) finished so i can spend uninterrupted time with tyler when he is able.
on to the fun things. we have a pretty fun time on the weekends. there always seems to be something going on. there are drop nights every six weeks (and spouse coffees the day before each drop night--of which, i hosted last week's coffee), this past weekend we also hosted the class and had a pumpkin carving contest. this weekend tyler has his changeover party, we have a habitat for humanity build and i'm trying to decide if i'm going to run a 5k for charity or just give them my money. like i told tyler, pilot training is so much fun!! ;) (poor guy)
here are a few pictures from the fall fest/pumpkin party/carving contest (just testing my alliteration skills, no big deal)
oh, alright, here are our first days of school. i know, i know. but we just had to. :) we both get up rather early (and actually go to bed pretty early...so long, night owl danielle...what's happening to me?!?!)
