Okay, so it's summertime again, and I finally have time to blog (hallelujah!) My last year was consumed with completing the National Board Certification process, and now I am in the waiting stage - I find out if I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher (with a pay raise) in November.

A lot has happened in the last year:
* Carlos and I have found a new church home, and we are meeting lots of new friends and growing in our faith.
* I will be teaching Reading next year instead of English. My students will still be freshmen, but I am looking forward to the change in curriculum.
* Progress on the house hasn't moved forward a lot, but we are hoping to complete the hall bathroom and re-roof the barn very soon. Just waiting on God to send us a plumber and a roofer! :)
* I have opened a shop on Etsy and hope to make and sell lots of stuff this summer!

There's a quick catch-up, which I felt was needed since it has been nearly a year since I've written anything! More to come so…
