So Much Going On!

Well, school has started. We have officially finished 4 days......and I'm still alive. I have 21 students this year. This is the largest group I have had in my 9 years. I did have 26 when I student taught...but being that it was a private school...it's hard to compare! I have a pretty chatty bunch, but Garrett Boot Camp is in full force and I don't think it will take long to get them into shape! I love seeing all of the fresh haircuts, new clothes, and gleaming white shoes! Every year I try to come up with something different for my door...this was my last minute attempt for 2009:
I am working half days right now. I felt like I deserved to miss some school just like every other teacher I know that's had a baby. I can't help it if I have perfect timing and he's born the day before we get out! I leave at noon everyday through August 26th. I really think it would be easier to be there all day, because my plan time is in the afternoon, so I have been getting there at 7:15 in the morning (I KNOW, RIGHT?!?) to make sure everything is ready for my sub. I can't wait to get my hair chopped off b/c it is driving me crazy and looks ridiculous. Just haven't had the time...or energy...so please don't judge!

I thought this picture of Brecken was hilarious! I was out buying props for his 3 month pics and these were the first pair of shades I bought. I ended up finding some with the strap that fit better, so these Hot Wheels ones will have to wait till he's a little older! You can't see his eyes unless there is the flash of the camera...but I think it is so funny! He apparently thought it was pretty funny, too....he was workin' on a poop!
Brecken actually turned 13 weeks old today! He will officially be 3 months old tomorrow, but I have to take a picture of him EVERY Monday for his weekly pic! Oh, don't you worry, I'll be taking more tomorrow...I'm sure he will look quite different! Here he is today:
He's becoming quite the flirt! I love that everything I do makes him laugh! =)
That's all for now! I wouldn't want you to pass out from so many updates!
P.S.---Is today really just Monday?

Cherie, you look great and your door is so cute! Brecken is adorable! I read your comment on our blog and I am going back and forth about what to do, I am hoping that by inducing 10 days early that at most he will be 9 lbs and my sister was 9 lbs and my mom was able to deliver her....we'll see. :)
