Just a quick hello. I also wanted to say thank you once again to everyone who offered their condolences recently, in both public and private messages. It was an unfortunate way to end my summer break.
Thankfully, my mind has been somewhat distracted by school. I am finishing up my third week with my new students. Things are going very well, especially since I spent a decent chunk of my summer revamping my lesson plans. I am also taking online courses to fulfill my license renewal. In the process, I have stumbled upon a program offered through my school district that may help me become online certified. I enjoy my current school (I was even a student there back in the 90s), but when we eventually move, I would entertain the idea of online teaching. So, the above picture was taken for a class assignment. We had to post a picture of ourselves on the class discussion board that depicts our personality, hobby, and what is important to us. We were not allowed to use words, just the picture.
Also keeping me busy is our kitchen project. Here is the progress so far, with all credit going to my husband. For reference, here is what it used to look like. Up next will be a white tile backsplash with some glass tile accents to match the specks in the granite. However, we will probably hold off for a month or two before going down more uncharted territory.
I will probably be absent for a little while longer, but I look forward to chatting with everyone soon. :)
