My Disappearing Act

It was pointed out to me the other day that I haven't posted here for a month and a half. Which is completely not like me. Since I started this blog 4 years ago, I haven't been absent for such long periods of time. The first reason is that between graduate school and being the Relief Society President I don't have a lot of time, period. The second reason being that this term is kicking my trash. Despite taking fewer credits and not having a practicum I can barely keep up. I'm taking two history classes for my actual endorsement and they have 100+ pages of reading a week. On top of that are my Assessment and Social Studies Methods classes which require me to create unit and lesson plans, which is by far the most difficult task I have faced so far in the program, especially the part where I have to do it without a set a curriculum to base them on. And on top of all of that are all the various responsibilities of my calling. And the fact that my classes are quite spread out, meaning I don't have large chunks of time to settle into homework, only an hour here or there during the day. Which means I probably won't be back for another month and a half until finals are over and I am free for three weeks. I hope all your lives are less stressful and more fun! See you in December.

Good luck with everything. I hope you get things done the way you want to... I have complete faith in you that you will come out with flying colors.. but good luck just the same.

I will be home for Thanksgiving, but will be living in Sharon McConkie's old house, since my dad and stepmom sold our house and are in the process of moving as we speak. So, it will be weird. But I can't wait to see you! In all your 2nd trimester glory!

It has been delightful to have you here for Thanksgiving. Thanks for being so cheerful about going through so many treasures, boxing up, putting up nativities, and just being YOU. It was a JOY to have you join us in the temple!
