This past week has been a fun one, busy like usual, but fun!
In between preparing for the big move, working on applications for both teaching positions and other positions, and the normal every day activities, I have found time to really enjoy life!
This week started off great.
Raena and I spent some time on Sunday playing with one of my toys from Christmas, a RipStick!
It is like a skateboard but it twists and turns and your feet stay on the board the entire time. You move your hips and legs in a way that the board moves forward!
We learned a lot during this fun experience…
Lesson 1: Get super excited and show your excitement by giving the thumbs up sign!
Lesson 2: Get the proper footwear. We tried wearing our TOMS but they slid right off so we switched into our sneakers. (We happen to having matching footwear!)
Lesson 3: It is okay to FAIL! (Plus they make for some really funny pictures!)
Lesson 4: Get serious, show the road and RipStick who is boss!
Lesson 5: Keep practicing!
Then as Monday rolled around the days got pretty rocky. I had a few “bad” days where things just didn’t go my way. Everything took longer than I had planned, the weather was terrible, and things kept breaking when I needed them (printer, scanner, computer….).
As the week continued things got better!
The computer was fixed (thanks google for helping me find out how to fix it!)!
We acquired a *new* printer thanks to friends who didn’t need it anymore. They saved us $100!
We got the news that we were moving into our apartment!
I had an interview that went really well, not a teaching job but it is still working with kids!
And my best memory of the week included these little girls..
