How happy are we that the Spring Program is finally over???? It was a big success but it was exhausting!! Keisha and I choreographed a fabulous ribbon performance and we were so proud of our kids for pulling it off. How do you like our shirts???
Some of you might remember this kid, he was one of my first students and now he is taller than me! He is standing on a step here but I was wearing really tall shoes. It's frightening! I love when I get to see them, they make me so happy!
After the show we had to go out and celebrate! We were so tired we nearly fell asleep at the table!

The other thing we have been busy with is trying to buy a house!! We have been looking for several months now and we have seen about 30 places! There is a lot of crap out there, seriously! We have seen some really great places too and we think we have finally found one we really like in San Dimas! In the beginning it was all really overwhelming, all these terms and things I knew nothing about. Josh and I have learned so much it has been very interesting. It's still some what overwhelming but at least I feel more comfortable now. I am really trying to trust God's plan and his timing. I know he has it all planned out! I just need to remember not to worry about it all. Easier said than done! We hope to move sometime in the beginning of summer or before!
So, I guess that's about all!! It's good to be back!!
This year our school has started the process of going to one on one laptops for all students. This year we have a cart of Macbooks that travels from classroom to classroom and next year the third-fifth grade classes will actually be one on one meaning each student in those grades will have a their own laptop to use in class all day everyday. It's pretty crazy. It has been a wild ride teaching computers to 6 and 7 year old kids. I thought it would be easier because kids these days are all pretty up with technology but these kids were really nervous. Some caught on really quick but others not so much. It's like starting from scratch, learning the very basics, how to log in and such. Things we all do but we don't remember learning. The last month has been amazing because the kids are finally "getting." It's really exciting. I am also feeling really proud of myself because I feel my computer knowledge and skills have really improved and I am pretty impressed with the things I can do now!
Becky and Cory's Wedding
The wedding was in a beautiful old mansion, it was amazing! After the ceremony we went down to the wine cellar for drinks which was something I had never done before. It was really neat. The reception was held up stairs in the ballroom. I don't know if that was really what it was called but that's what it felt like!
