Junior year, 8th and 2nd grade are all off to a good start. Some of my students stay with me for more than 1 year, but I also have several new students, so we’re all still getting acquainted. It can take a bit for middle schoolers to open up. I’m teaching some electives this year, too, and those have been fun. I love middle school students; they’re so fun to be around and funny!
Year 3 has started off better than 1 and 2 since everything is more familiar to us. We know where to shop, how to get around and how to use online delivery for dinner! Perks of living in a big city;)
We’re wrapping up summer (boooo!) and seeing signs of fall (yayy!). The weather has been nice, making our very frequent walks to our coffee shops (yes, we have to go to 2) very enjoyable.
Sean stays very busy in his new role, and teaching is pretty time consuming, too, but we love it. It’s easy to feel the stress of work, but we also have a lot to be thankful for. I get a lot of joy out of seeing my students make progress. Our own kids are pretty fun, too.
These are a few pictures from around town:
