Hurricane Ike

We survived Hurricane Ike! It actually wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be because we were on the west side of the storm. We never lost electricity or satellite...which was great! The good thing about Texas is that there aren't that many big trees that could have snapped and fell on roads or powerlines. Texas is good for something! :)

Busy Busy Busy

Whew...it's that time of year when I just can't seem to get caught up! School has started...we're in our 3rd week. I have 22 in my class now. That's a good thing...now I won't get any new ones unless someone leaves my class. The beginning of the year is always so hard because the kids have to learn the rules and procedures. It really wears you out! Wes and I have celebrated birthdays in the last 2 weeks....another year older. I don't like saying that I'm older than 25 now! It's a little depressing...it will more depressing in 4 years! Wes' parents were here for the weekend between our birthdays....it was fun! (sorry I don't have any pictures of anything...my mind has been elsewhere other than taking pictures). I'm looking forward to the end of the month when my mom will come for a visit. I'm ready for fall weather...but now COLD weather. We've had a few cooler mornings lately and it's been so nice. I've been sick and I think it's because the weather is starting to change. I've never had allergy problems until I moved to TX....something out here just doesn't agree with my body! Wes has class on Tuesday nights so I have the evening to myself...it's nice...but I do miss him being home with me!
