You know how Paul said that, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some” (1 Corinthians 9:22). Well, after getting braces, I look a lot more like a 12 year old (about the age of my students)! Yup, that’s right- I got braces this morning… I was back in town for all of like 20 hours total. I got braces, a haircut, new clothes and new shoes! I also exchanged some summer clothes for some sweaters and sweat pants!
I really do like driving, so I didn’t mind driving a total of 7 hours this weekend (4 day weekend- whoo hooo!). The trees were absolutely beautiful!!! I could not have picked a better weekend to drive home! 🙂
Since we had Monday off (it was a professional development day, but I missed it- it’s ok, I’ll get over it!), we’re heading into a 4 day week! This is great. You can’t beat a 4 day weekend sandwiched between two 4 day weeks. And on top of that, I got to see friends back at MU (and turn in the one project that I have for student teaching!)! And this next weekend I’m going on a weekend retreat in Indiana where I will see MU and UC friends 😀
You know, it’s hard to write about student teaching when you don’t have school… you can expect more about school next time- brace yourself! 😉
