Happy New Year



Today is the last day of Christmas break, and I'm sorry to see it go. I've enjoyed having both kids around and not having to drive to W'ville every day. (They're wearing their duck and frog towels from G-ma T, with which they're currently obsessed.)

Back to the grind, though, starting Monday. And how.

Zaya will be going back to school; Art will work all week (he had four days off last week and three this week) and I'll be substituting all next week for my aunt-in-law at my alma mater. (Spanish I)

I'm not sure if that's a more frightening prospect for me or the students, as my actual teaching experience is very limited. It will be two classes a day, and I'm still not exactly sure what I'm going to do with them, although I have a lot of things to choose from. I think it will depend on the students themselves. We'll just have to see on Monday, I guess.

In other news, I haven't learned to ride my unicycle yet, but I'm getting better (and more bruised). The kids are doing artwork right now, which means, this time, cutting and painting. In combination, I guess, although I've asked them not to cut any piece of paper with wet paint on it. We'll see how that turns out.

I'm off to tame the laundry monster. Wish me luck. Here are a couple more of my favorite pictures from the last two weeks.
