And the countdown begins!! (or ends..)

11 Days, yes only 11 school days left until my Summer Vacation starts! I have to say that if I was not a teacher, I would want to stay at home all the time!! I love having my time with my little man!

Since this is my first attempt at blogging, I will try to catch some of you up to speed! And I promise I will post pictures as soon as I can!
This year has been full...of what?? EVERYTHING!!
I started a new job at the beginning of the school year, made the BIG jump to teach in Burkburnett, I figured that we lived here, it only made sense! I am so happy with my job!! I now teach High School Special Education and would not change it for the world! Going from Elementary to High School, I thought I was going to have a tough time adjusting, but the kids are wonderful!
2009 - I have to say was not my year - lots of changes in our lives and a fall that was heard around the world..or so I thought! Back in November, I was decorating the Christmas tree, standing on a stool and as I am putting the finishing touches on, the stool cracked underneath me, and I guess I thought I could catch myself with my hand...well I was wrong!! That fall landed me a trip to the ER and a cast for 5 weeks!! And now every time we talk about climbling up on something, Reid always has to remind mommy that I hurt my arm and we are not allowed to stand on stools, just ladders with daddy watching!
2010 - started off with a BANG!! thanks to my wonderful husband! We have always wanted to go to Vegas for New Year's and finally got the opportunity to go this year!! Not only did we get to see the fireworks from the top of Mandalay Bay, but Joey took me to go see the Black Eyed Peas!!! What a way to start off the new year and start fresh for my journey into my 30's~! (only one more month by the way)
Now with school ending and the summer coming close, I have so much to be thankful for and look forward to! Lake season is beginning and Reid is asking when we can go there and to the water park, then we have a trip planned to FL for a wedding and Disney World to see where Mickey lives!...we are sure going to be busy this summer, but not as busy as we are going to be in November -
Reid's baby brother or sister will be joining our family and we couldn't be more excited!!!
There sure are a lot of countdowns this summer to look forward to!!
