Color Run

Renee & I before the Color Run -- very clean!

Alice felt a little blue after awhile during the Color Run!  She was the one in the color "dust" the most!  Love it!!

Almost finished with my first 5K -- and loving it!!!

Me & Mary Beth at the end -- nice & colorful -- as it should be!!!

Renee & I at the end -- so fun & colorful!!

My ear was very, very blue, and I was colorful everywhere!!!!

Pink & yellow hair...I wanted to leave it for a couple days, but the color was mainly corn starch, so my hair was VERY dry!

a peek at my day (in words)

5 a.m.: wake up...get ready for the day...pack a lunch...
6 a.m.: (or shortly after): leave the to the commuter lot for carpooling...
6:45 a.m.: arrive at work...turn on computers...get psyched for the upcoming day...
7:10 a.m.: clock student from parent pick-up...escort to locker and first class...
7:30 - 9:05 a.m.: first block -- either science with a student or pe with a different student...both can be very interesting to be a part of...currently learning the scientific method and ping pong and ultimate frisbee...
9:05 - 10:45 a.m.: second block -- either teaching math to a group (dividing fractions & measuring with a protractor) or pe with a groups of good kids...
10:45 - 11:30 a.m.: art with a student -- current project is a monochromatic still life...
11:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.: lunch...time to relax a little & hopefully get some reading in :)
12 - 12:45 p.m.: choir with a student...they are doing some fun is called "One For the Altos" -- it is so funny ('cause it is true!)
12:45 - 2:15 p.m.: help out in a resource classroom...or making copies...or laminating things...or inputting grades...or doing whatever i am asked to do...
2:15 - 2:20 p.m.: walk student to parent pick-up...
2:20 - 2:40 p.m.: do some prep for the next day...clock out...start home...
3:10 p.m.: back to the commuter lot!
3:30 p.m.: HOME!

the evening may involve mad science (in a couple weeks once it starts back up) or church or cornerstone or confirmation class or errands or whatever else needs to happen! 

what does your day look like??

Happy 2012!!

Ok, so i went back and found my "goals" for 2011 and how i did:

1. eat less/move more -- not near as well as i should have :(  the eating less worked some of the time, but moving more did not really happen...
2. scrap a lot -- i did at times...there were spurts of a lot of scrapping, then spurts of hardly any
3. travel more -- nada!  i went no where except work this year
4. get a certified teaching job! -- unfortunately no...grrrrrr!!
5. stay positive -- this was hard, but for the most part i did, or i at least did not go all negative on people i know
6. be a better blogger -- this was off & on as well -- i blogged every day a month a couple times, but not like i should have...especially this month, i would be reading blogs & think that i needed to go blog, and then i wouldn't...

And here is what I want to accomplish in 2012...
1. eat less/move more
2. scrap a lot...make sure to have books to deliver to cardinal glennon hospital
3. travel -- not sure where, but somewhere, anywhere!!
4. get a certified teaching job
5. continue being positive
6. be a better blogger

what a broken record i am!!!
