Here are a few gems from school:

"URGH! School is so boring! Everything is so boring! Even Heaven is boring-- my uncle told me in a dream!"

"Sorry Mrs. Lowe, I just can't focus. It's the hormones."

I'll get pictures up soon! I'm just charging my camera batteries! :)

Don't give up on our blog yet!

Wow, I just realized that I haven't blogged for TWO MONTHS! I am such a slacker. Life has been good for us here in Iowa City. We just got a snow storm, and unfortunately, we did not have a 2 hour delay. I am a permanent sub for a 5th grade teacher until the beginning of March (I started December 1). It is getting easier-- the first few weeks were not so good. It's good to remember what it feels like the be a teacher again. There are definitely rewarding moments. Fifth grade is very different from 3rd grade I'm discovering, full of 5th grade romances, Bath and Body Works, Justin Bieber...

Andrew just started yesterday with his SECOND semester of medical school. He survived a whole semester! He really is enjoying it, and I'm very glad. We're very happy here.

Christmas break was amazingly good-- I'll blog about that later with pictures. My whole family was able to be home, and we made a lot of wonderful memories.

More to come!
