My weekend in Atlanta was awesome! I haven't really been to Atlanta since I went with high school choir in 1998. It is so huge, and way more urban and diverse than I imagined. We had a great time visiting Jacob's friends, who were so precious. I loved having the opportunity to meet some of the people from his hometown that he talks about all the time. It was a shame we could only stay for 2 days. There should be pictures eventually.
I am back in the swing of things at home now. All is still well with school -- as far as I can tell I am still very much on top of it. I will meet with my classroom teacher on Wednesday afternoon, I can't wait. We've been emailing and she seems very sweet. I take my most major exam for my certification on Saturday th 27th. It's a 5-hour test. I'm usually pretty good at standardized tests but this one has me worried, less because of the content and more because of the significance it holds to my future. The good thing is that you can take it as many times as you need to but you have to have 31 days between test times. And it only costs $25 :)
The next really exciting thing I have going on is going camping with Jacob on October 11th. I reserved a beach camp site at Fort DeSoto, which has twice been voted America's best beach. It's really cheap to rent the site but you have to reserve months in advance. Some of the best sites are already books through April of 2009! No dogs allowed unfortunately but I always appreciate alone time with the boy.
