Boys boys boys

Yesterday after work I went over to Jen's house and played for a little while! She has a little boy that's 3 years old and she was also watching her brother's son, who is also 3 years old! They are SO cute!! It was absolutely adorable watching them play together! Eli wasn't so sure how to play with them but he loved watching them play and just walking around... haha... and taking the occasional toy and putting it in his bag... do I have a little kleptomaniac on my hands?

Well Spring Break started for us today! Yay! I will have to be honest and say that I was not as
 looking forward to it as I have been in the past. I think the reason is that working half a day at school has really allowed me not to be as crazy exhausted as in the past. Our family has been hugely blessed by this opportunity and I am still so thankful for it!

I had student video projects due in class yesterday and today and they turned out fantastic! I am so proud of my kiddos! I love the students I have. I've had awesome students in the past but this is the first year that every single student is incredible. Encourage your kids to be their quirky little selves because if they can hold on to that, in high school their teachers will love them! Or at least I will! All of those dry sense of humors, those one liners, those funny speech patterns... I just love them! I can't imagine anyone not wanting to teach high school. They are fantastic!
This is the first month we were consciously trying to have a baby. haha... does that make sense? I still don't get the whole ovulation cycle. Don't feel like you need to teach me unless you just want to. In fact, I actually teach it to my class but there are always exceptions and there are always babies born when ovulation didn't even seem to be happening. I looked at about 3 or 4 different websites and they all gave me about the same window... sort of... So who knows! I guess I'll find out at the beginning of April!

Good luck on the baby making!

I absolutely LOVE teenagers also! I think they're the coolest thing on the planet!

I don't totally get the whole cycle thing either. We would love to have another baby, too, if the Lord is willing for that to be. We'll see what the Lord has in store for you and me! how fun:)
