Well, not much has been going on and I keep thinking that I should get on and blog but there really hasn't been much to actually write about. Things are going good. Derick is still pretty busy with work and all the IEPs he has to do but I think he is enjoying what he does (some days more than other I think!) My class has been good. They definitely have their good days and their bad days though. The good news is I only have four weeks and then I am on track break! And I also don't have school next Thursday or Friday for "fall recess"! Yeah!

For the past few months we Derick and his brothers and friends have been playing on a recreational softball team. It's been lots of fun to go and watch them play every Tuesday. And it's sad to say that now it is over. I won't mention what their record was but they sure tried! I'm going to miss going to the games now! What else is there to do on a Tuesday night???

Tonight Derick had his first parent teacher conferences so he was pretty much gone all night. It was kind of nice to make something for dinner that I like but know Derick will hate. It was also nice not to have to watch sports but watch my own shows. I can't wait until we move into our new place and have two tv's so that he can watch his sports and I can watch my girly shows! Even though I know Derick secretly likes watching some of my shows. Ok maybe the word "likes" is a bit much but I think he gets sucked in sometimes! LOL

Speaking of girly shows- tomorrow is the season premier of Grey's Anatomy! I am totally addicted! And so is everyone on my team at work. We are all going to Shelley's house to watch it amd eat yummy pizza. We have done this for the past three seasons and I love it. And now that I'm married it's definitely nice having a girls night!

Go Thunder!

So last week it was homecoming week at Derick's school- Westlake High. I had been telling him how fun it would be to go to the football game. So it was a nice surprise when Derick asked if I wanted to go get some dinner and go to the game. It was actually lots of fun. It was fun to see some of his students and to watch the game. I kept getting distracted by everything going on. The kids with their painted bodies, the kids jumping all around in front of us, the cheerleaders, and all the people around. We even got to see the marching band, cheerleaders, and drill team perform and they crowned the homecoming royalty. All in all it was a good date night! But  I learned that I definitely don't miss high school!

One month of fun!

Well today is officially our one month anniversary! Crazy! I can't believe it has already been a month since all the wedding craziness! Everything has been good with Derick and I. We've both settled into work and Derick seems to be enjoying it all. He's been pretty swamped with all the paperwork that comes with teaching, especially all of it that comes with opening a new school, getting new students, and being in special ed. Sometimes he seems overwhelmed and it makes me think back to my very first year of teaching and I don't miss that at all! My class has been good. I don't have any hellions or trouble makers, just a few low kids and of course some talkers but all in all they are pretty good and cute. I forget how low they are when they first come to first grade but they already seem to be making progress which is good! For the time being, Derick and I are living in Derick's parents' basement until our condo is done in October. We got to go pick out all of our carpet, appliances, and colors the other day. I can't wait to be able to move in and have our own home. As for everything else, our days have been filled with lots of camping and football. But I don't mind as long as I get to spend time with Derick. Today we are both feeling a little under the weather. I have a sore throat and am very tired and Derick has the same but he actually is running a fever and has it a little worse that me. I told him thats what happens when you are a teacher. You seem to get sick quite often. I'm sure his immune system will be pretty tough like mine soon! So yeah, we are spending our one month anniversary at home sick, sleeping, and watching football!

Wedding Pictures

Alright, I know a lot of you have been asking for pictures of the big day. So here are a few that Derick's family had. I've still been lazy and haven't uploaded some from my camera and I'm still waiting on the ones from the photographer but hopefully some of these will hold you over for a bit! :)
