5th grade

For my Senior Practicum class, I got placed in a 5th grade classroom at Jefferson Elementary in Rigby, Idaho! Today was my full day to be with these 5th graders. So far so good. I also taught my first lesson to 33 students at once! (I think the most I have ever taught was 20ish students...) The last two days of being in the classroom all day I have come home exhausted! On Friday (my first day), I came home and took a TWO hour nap! Today I have not taken a nap, but I am worried I will pass out while doing homework!

I hope this gets easier, and I get less tired as I spend more time in the classroom!

(Sorry there is no picture of the school, I tried to find one online, but couldn't...)

3:30 AM!!!

Last night was a very late night! I cannot remember the last time I stayed awake later than 1:30 or stayed out later than 12:30! Last night we went over to one of Stephen's accounting buddies house.
Our night consisted of:

board games, dominoes, and Mario Kart
(I came in last almost everytime in Mario Kart...)
nachos, candy, and apples with peanut butter

We didn't end up leaving until around 3:30!
(and for some reason I woke up at 8:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep...)
Thank you Craig and Salem for having us over!

Tennis Pros

Yesterday Stephen and I were bored and wanted something to do. So, we went to Wal-Mart and decided to walk around. We started out looking for a frisbee and ended up buying tennis rackets and tennis balls! Neither one of us have played tennis for a very long time!

We called Brian and Jaclyn and they came and played with us! (Thank you guys for being patient with me!) Stephen was pretty good after we played for a little and he got the hang of things....I don't think I improved that night at all! However, we went this morning and played and I was quite a bit better than I was yesterday! So we are not quite tennis pros, but there's only room for improvement!!!

So, we had tickets to go to conference....
But, we got stuck in Idaho...:-(

We both had a TON of homework this weekend because it's the week before finals.We planned to just work on homework all day Friday and Saturday morning. We were going to leave right after the 2nd session of conference and drive down to Utah and go to the 2nd Sunday session.

However, we woke up to about 4 inches of snow! Neither one of us wanted to drive in it, especially because it was suppose to continue to snow the rest of Saturday and Sunday. So, we went to the store and bought an 11 lb ham (yes, it is just us two eating...) and the ingredients for funeral potatoes. Looks like we'll be celebrating Easter with a yummy dinner!

Utah, here we come next week!!!!
