new beginnings


This week we all went back to school: Jove started Kindergarten in Jupiter's district, Miranda went to her toddler program at a Montessori School and Jupiter and I are back in our high school science classrooms. The kids are happy, but tired. I feel like I have earned a merit badge in lunch making and backpack notes.

I feel VERY good being back in the classroom. I truly love the work of planning and teaching lessons. My students are great and I expect a great year.

Jupiter and I went to his cousin's wedding in Phoenix, Arizona over labor day weekend. It was a beautiful wedding and a great chance for us to be together before the school year starts. I love the desert landscape and all of the cacti. We will definitely go back with the whole family to explore and make it up to the Grand Canyon
