Blog Update

Reading Chez's blog inspired me to update mine as well.

Our summer in bullet point form:
  • We bought a house around the corner from where we were. We love it!
  • I took a two week course in Orff Schulwerk, an approach to teaching music. It was eye-opening and I can't wait to use what I have learned.
  • We went to North Carolina to see my sister.
  • We spent lots of time with our family in Texas.
  • Grant built a fire pit in our back yard and is dreaming of cooler weather to build a stream/waterfall/pond.
  • We spend just as much time in our yard as we did in the other house with the pool. It helps that we have a great deck and lots of trees.
  • Our cats love going between inside and outside through the pet door in our new house.
  • This week, I have been setting up my classroom at the new school. I am so happy to have my very own room (last year I was on the stage).
