Long Week

So you'll have to forgive teh long post this week as it has been a long one. So much has happened. John Michael started school on Monday and had a really good week. He seems to really like his teacher and she him. I also started working again this week. It has been really fun getting back to work but not having worked full time in a while I was quite exauhsted. I am teacheing 2 year olds and as most of you know they definitely keep you on your toes.

Rob has still been resting this weeek and trying to get his foot back to normal. He is still having problems putting pressure on it but seems to be making progress. He is going back to work on Tuesday for the shear fact that he is done being on teh couch and can't take too much more.
This I just wanted to share. Back in June I planted these flowers in the flower box around the bottom of the mailbox out front. I hadn't seen anything from them and was really surprised when I walked outside last Monday and happened to notice these 2 buds. I am excited that of all the stuff I planted something finally showed.

More Spoiling



You would not believe the spoiling I received this week! My swap partner this time went all out! THanks so much for all the goodies!

I got a job

I got a job at Destinations CHildcare Center just down the street from the house. I start work tomorrow. Rachel is going to be in the big girl class ( the 3 year old room) and I will be teaching the 2 year olds. John Michael will only be there for about 2 hours everyday after school. I will still get to drop him off at school each morning. Way excited and I will post more tomorrow after the first day.

Broke Foot!

So Rob fell off of a ladder on Friday and has been icing and elevating his foot all weekend. We finally got him in to the ER today and they said he has a sprined ankle and a broken meta-tarsle. He will be in a walking boot for a while to try and get back to normal.
