One of the perks of being a teacher is I get breaks when they do. I have so much free time, I don't know what to do with myself. So far I have cleaned out my purse, color coded my earrings, cleaned my room, gone Christmas shopping, and watched movies. I'm running out of things to do.
School has been going great. My students have been awesome, and I'm always so amazed by what they can do. For Christmas I had them write "If I Were Santa . . ." and I was busting up over some of the things they would write.
Another great perk of being a teacher is all the cute little gifts from my students. Like this pencil jar. Love it!
I hope you all have a great Christmas!

Remember me? The person who used to write on this blog.
I started my first year of teaching so blogging went out the window. But it's Thanksgiving break so I've spent the day reading, watching movies, eating, reading blogs, and napping. It's been awesome! I miss being lazy. While I was reading blogs I got a little blogsick and wanted to post again.
Life has been great lately. I've been working my dream job and I love it. It's hard. It's exhausting. It never stops. It makes me want to pull my hair out at times. But at the end of the day it is the best, most rewarding thing I have ever done.
A few weeks ago I went back to the Spiral Jetty. If you've read my blog for awhile you might remember I tried to go last year but it was covered with water. Amberly and I tried again and we were able to see it this year and walk out on it. I love little road trips to see cool things.

Last week I moved back to my hometown to be closer to the school I'm going to be teaching at. It's bitter sweet. Mostly bitter. I loved my old ward and the people I lived by and the fact that I was so close to the canyon. Saturday, a few people from my old ward got together to go on a hike and BBQ. We went up to Timpanogas Falls which was really cool because I had never been there before. Afterwards, we BBQ'd Carne Asada and I can't even tell you how amazingly delicious it was. Now I want some more! It was a good way to wrap up the summer before school starts. In 8 days. People, I will be teaching school in 8 days. Weird!
