Disclaimer: I am in love with the new lens that Dave got me...I have A LOT of learning to do, but so far it has done nothing but impress me!
Well this week was a bit of a whirlwind, but we survived! The spring semester of grad school started Monday and on Tuesday I started my new job as an aide. My classes seem like they are going to have very few projects/exams so that is great and the I love my students that I work with now. Of course we still had ballet this week and I was able to snap some pics of Miss Em. She also read her very first 1st grade level book this week! She is now taking tests (accelerated reader) after completing her books, so that is a big step for her! We are very proud of our little bookworm. Mason is doing very well at his German school, speaking more Germglish at home which is quite hilarious. Our halfway party for the deployment is this weekend and I am EXCITED! Not only because it's downhill from here, but the party is 80s themed! I can't wait to share pictures from that! Neon and workout apparel, two things I still love dearly! :) We are getting very excited for these next few months because we have not only one, but two visitors coming! Grandma will be coming in March and these babies cannot wait! Then in May, Chelsea will be coming for an extended summer visit! In between classes, work and children I have been researching hotels, trips, etc. for my visitors. I cannot wait to have them both here!
