One Day Of Freedom

Well I think Ryle and I might have decided to put the baby issue on hold. Like for a while. He said he is happy with our life now. And I'm tired of stressing about it. It's taking longer than I wanted to pay off this last credit card. Plus we still have more debt to pay off after that. Do I really want to add 14,000 + to that?! Who knows! I'm just tired of thinking about it all the time. We always change our mind about this, but if we do decide to try again, I don't think it will be before Christmas. Anyway ....

I have one more day of freedom left before school starts back ... scary how fast the summers fly by! I plan to be SOO lazy tomorrow - it's going to be a sit on the couch and read kind of day! Well after I do my Crossfit WOD, of course! My brother has been my own little personal trainer everyday - it's great having him live here!

Here are some picture of more Owl Updates to my classroom ...

Goodbye Summer!

Well it's almost time to say good-bye to summer! School officially starts for us in one week. I have been at school the past two days getting my room ready. I always say that I'm not going up there until I have to, but I'm too OCD about my room! I want it to be perfect! Too bad having a perfect room doesn't equal a perfect year, right?! Wishful thinking! Here are some things I have been working on in my room to incorporate the owls (kind of poor quality - I took them with my phone, sorry!):

So I may have the best sister-in-law ever! She made my word wall!

That's all that I can really show you so far. The other stuff has been just cleaning and putting things away.

And can I just take a minute to tell you that I had the best vacation ever! I was so scared to go white water rafting, but it was the most fun I've had in a while! Gatlinburg, TN is just beautiful! Enjoy some pictures from our vacation!!
