I got my classroom assignment and it looks like I'll be with fifth graders this time around! Talk about going the whole spectrum -- from kindergartners to fifth graders, with a brief period of summer reading camp with the second graders. Even though I'm slightly scared of kids this old (as cliche as it is, they're not the same as they used to be! My mom, when hearing the news, exclaimed "You and your sister were so precious at that age!" Oh, to be so naive :)), I am really looking forward to the challenge. I am only praying that my classroom teacher is incredible, because it will make all the difference. I am there to learn after all!
I am heading to Atlanta with Jacob this weekend to visit some friends of his from his hometown who just got married. It's a very spontaneous trip and I'm excited for the adventure! We're leaving Friday at 2 in the afternoon. I'll have to actually take pictures of this trip and post them -- yes, something I constantly neglect to do!
