mostly Josh...

Since I last posted Josh went to his first school dance. I went a little early and watched the kids and he seemed to be having a lot of fun. He said he liked it when it was over. I am glad.
Saturday Josh went to the Laura Ingall's Wilder house/museum in Mansfield, MO with Karl's parents. They saw a play and looked at the house. He enjoyed that and when they got back there was a rodeo going on near our house, so they went to that too. Josh was not feeling well when he got home that night and the next morning he was running a fever. I do not even know what was wrong because he stayed home today from school, but the fever has broke and he seems fine. It is so strange how that works out.
There is really nothing going on with me. I am trying to get a loan for my school this year. We have been able to pay for it to this point, but now with me being gone from work for class and getting docked pay for every time I am gone...not to mention, I will be gone some with Josh and his teeth...braces, getting teeth pulled, etc. So we have applied for a loan. I believe it has been approved, we just wait. Speaking of Josh's teeth, he was supposed to have his first 2 pulled today, but because he was not feeling well this morning, I canceled the appointment. He goes again next Monday. He will have 2 appointments to get the 4 teeth that need to be pulled.
I have class tomorrow, then work. Have a nice week. More cute siggies from Judy!! I have had a few people ask about my siggies. Most of them come from Judy, you can find her here: at Grateful Heart Blog or the link or over on the right in my reads.

classes and dances

I have a few minutes before I need to head off to class this morning, so I thought I would make a quick blog entry.
I have been trying to keep up with homework this week. I also went to my doctor yesterday for my check-up and everything was fine. I go back in another year. I really like this doctor, but I am usually there for a really long time because he is so popular and so there is a long wait. My appointment was for 2:40PM and he came in at 3:45PM. That is how it has always been. He does spend about 30 minutes with each patient talking and letting us know what to do. I love him, so I do not mind the wait. Then he wanted me to have some bloodwork done, so that was some more time. I got home around 4:30PM..LOL!!
Today after school Josh is going to a dance. I haven't let him go to any until now, we shall see what he thinks. He will probably tell me how inappropriate it is. He cracks me up. He wanted to try it out though. I want him to do some more things too and see what he enjoys. I wanted him to join some clubs (Student Council, Beta, etc), but his friends think the clubs are stupid, so none of them joined. I think they are just afraid to do something new. Maybe they will find something they enjoy.
Well, I am rambling. I need to get on to class. Do you know how hard it is for me to sit in class from 8AM-11:50AM?? It is hard. I need to move. That is 3 classes all at that is why so long. It is Teaching Methods, so that is why they are taught together like that. They are good classes, I enjoy them.
I hope you are having a good week. Judy sent me some new siggies!! I love them!!

It was my birthday on Thursday. It was really rainy. I had class, but once I got to the preschool, my co-workers had lots of great presents and goodies to eat. It was fun and the kids always enjoy eating cupcakes. It is one of my co-workers birthday on Monday. We will have another party!!
I have my homework done for next week. I have some small things I need to do for my portfolio that I may work on this weekend a little. We have a big portfolio due at the end of the semester that we need to keep up with all semester or it will be a lot of work at the end.
I go to my neurologist this Wednesday and the following Monday is Josh's appointment to have those teeth pulled...4 canines I get ready for his braces on October 25th.
Well, I just wanted to check in really quick. I hope you all have a nice week.
Remebering 9/11!!

Labor Day!!

We did some major cleaning up at the preschool this week. We got a new shed and we were able to move the furniture around and also get one of the offices completely cleaned up and organized this week. We did the office for the speech pathologists, beacause I am in mine much less and we do not let kids in my office. I am so excited about it. I just need to get my office cleaned up now and it will look great.
I have been working on homework this weekend. I am taking 3 classes. I usually take 1-2, so I have that much more homework. It is tough with also working. I didn't think it would be, but it is. The projects we have done so far have been fun and easy, but they are going to get much more difficult. I will make it. Just pray for me.
I am taking tomorrow off from homework. I am going to rest. It is Labor Day!! I hope you all have a great day and it is a short week, so that is wonderful also!! I have 2 new kids starting at the preschool, so I am happy about that. Have a nice week!!
