I have not written for like a whole week.
And I am SO sorry.
It's been nutso!
So. Let's start with last weekend.
We had a robotics competition in Saint Louis.
So we left on Saturday (because for some silly reason the competition was on a sunday.).
We stayed at a hotel and that was fun.
We got pizza (fun)
The kids went swimming (fun)
I taught a fifth grader how to play speed (fun)
(I decided 21 or black jack wasn't appropriate)
I was deemed the party pooper room because I had the girls in bed by 9:30 and asleep an hour later! (AMAZING!)
Here is the catch.
The room next to us was filled with a large group of women. Which is not always a bad thing. However, they were SO loud. So I told the front desk (because we had to be up at 5:30 am.)
For some reason the hair blow dryer went off at Midnight, Midnight thrity, and one, and one fifteen. I don't know why. All I know is I was frustrate.
Also mildly amused because I had a sleep talker in my room and something was her "destiny." She was quite dramatic.
I was also on the floor because we had no extra beds, and we had a sleep walker too.
The good part of all this? I got to text a friend basically all night. It was the only grand part of the night.
It was nice talking to him.
It was almost like going on a walk, without walking.... Which is not the same, but at least you get to talk :D
The next day was the competition.
I don't think anyone expected the girls room to be the ones on time. i mean it's morning and hair had to be done! (I braided my girls' hair.) We were the first down to breakfast.
It was impressive.
Then the kids did AWESOME at the competition. It was geared a bit more city. So our farming problem was not fully understandable. But that is okay, because our kids kept amazing attitudes and just explained things. And it was so wonderful to watch.
Then Monday happened and we were all like... out of it.
Monday was a good day though. Don't ask me what we did because I don't remember.
Then Wednesday we had professional development at another school.
Well, I found out that they had heard about my Spanish class. I was told that my admin had been bragging on it. (Which is really exciting to hear!)
And you will never believe it!
I GOT BOOKS! I GOT RESOURCES!! GOD GOT ME BOOKS AND RESOURCES AND FIVE NEW SPANISH ENGLISH DICTIONARIES!!! HOW AWESOME IS THAT AND GOD?!
I was really excited and I got laughed at a few times. But it was so exciting.
THEN IT SNOWED!
So I called my friend. You knw the fellow. We had a nice chat.
It's just been a pretty good week.
I did my dance. Full out. With Props. I thought I was going to die. I just about had an actual asthma attack. It is a TOUGH dance. And it is next week. Kinda freaking out a little.
I don't get to go on the cruise on Monday. I am bummed, but my brother is going to stay over for four days.
I am so looking forward to that. I can't wait!
