Catching Up

Today I thought I would take some time to update you on the going-on's of my daily life.

First. home was great. This is the first time I have really missed home when leaving. I mean...don't get me wrong. I always miss the people but this is the first time that I have really missed my friends and Oregon in general.

When getting back into the swing of things here it seemed quite easy. Basically the first two weeks back have been all about the state test. Beside the field trip. Yes I survived my first official field trip as a teacher. I had one parent that joined us. Then we basically let them run loose in the police museum and then rounded them up and moved to the next floor. The state test you say... I think it went ok. I have no idea! We shall see.

Now we turn our focus to the math state test. Woohoo I am super excited. Cant you see!?! At least I have made it this far. I am sad to say that one of my friends has not. She has been 'removed' from her classroom. They are trying to fire her but its not easy so they are keeping her for small group work...aka... sub for kids who have been taken out of their classroom. It sucks. Im hoping and praying that Im not next on the list. I feel horrible for my friend but I dont want to be next. Ive gotta watch my p and qs.

Ugh. It should be interesting. A day off tomorrow then none until the February break. We shall see how it goes. Now its time to head outside to play in the snow.
