Mr. M's parents came into yesterday. They live only a few hours away, so it is an easy drive for either us to make to see the others.
We were able to partake of some yummy food, watch them interact with Little L and above all, spend time with there amazingness.
We have such a great life. It is different than most, but it works for us. I love having a job that I want to go to, I love having a husband who LOVES me unconditionally. We have a mutual understanding (I've had to learn over the years) that honesty really is the best policy, especially in marriage. He understands me more when I am frank and honest. (That sounds like a metal band of some sort)
Tomorrow I go back to work for pre-service, don't know what it entails, but I am excited. Then a week of training, a week off, and we are back to a full year of 2nd grade! I am such a nerd, like I've said before I am excited, if not anxious, and immersed in trying to learn how to be a better teacher with the down time I have had. "The First Days of School" is an excellent book for any aspiring, veteran, or even stay-at-home parent who would like to manage their school or home better. :)
