So, school has started and life happens. BUT I'm back. I'm teaching a Creative Reading and Writing Studio class this year so hopefully it will help me stay on track. I'm planning an entry a week (we've heard this before). BUT I PROMISE!!
So, back to the training. I got them finished it took a week, but I did it. Now I'll be able to share some other apps with my kids for project choices.
My trip to Colorado WAS AMAAAAAZING!!!
I got to Denver on Sunday morning, then drove around a bit. I went to The Tattered Cover bookstore, and it smelled so good! Then I drove around some more just enjoying the cooler and non-humid weather.
I made my way to Fort Collins and headed to Old Town to Old Firehouse Books. That was small but comfortable. I stopped and got groceries then made my way to my little slice of heaven.
What did I do in Colorado by myself? I read FIVE BOOKS!!! I enjoyed not having to talk to people. I enjoyed doing what I wanted when I felt like just because I could. I ate what I wanted when I wanted. I sat outside on the deck in my swimsuit or my pajamas every day. A couple of days I had to run into town (less than 5 minutes away). One day to get bottled water, because the tap water was making me sick!! Another to eat breakfast at the cafe. It was wonderful!!
During my week in Colorado, my kid was on a cruise with our Village. It was a group of 12. They started in Orlando and went to Nassau. He had a blast and texted me to let me know he had booked next summer's cruise for the same week. SOOOOO, when I checked out on Sunday, I booked the cabin FOR THE SAME WEEK NEXT SUMMER!! SOOOO EXCITED!!!
My niece, brother, and cousin were all visiting at the same time. Surprised my niece with a a birthday shopping spree at Pink. We all (my relatives and the Village) played Cards Against Humanity, and it was HILARIOUS!! I love when we get together for a game night!
Whew! This was longer than I anticipated! I'll be back with an update on Teaching -Year 24 - Week 1.
