Watermania 2008--Lake Tulloch!!

This past weekend at the lake was AMAZING! The weather was hot, until it rained and thunderstormed on Saturday, and then a fire started on Sunday! I went tubing, and my body wasn't too sore the next day! I really enjoyed the car ride up and down, hanging out on the boat, getting to know friends more and of course, all the good food. Here's a few pictures! Enjoy!

Hi mom!

I hear my mom is going to read my blog for the first time ever: a shout out to her! (hi gma, too.)

I haven't been updating, because there isn't much to report. I'm not enjoying summer school, but I'm getting through. I have been spending my week writing papers, although I got out tonight for a movie, with Mrs.Wan..which is always a good time! I am currently sitting here, working on the papers, nursing my sore throat and cold that has come to visit today. booo.

I promise I'll update next week, because this Friday, we go to the lake!! Tons of pictures to come.

I'll leave you with some recent-ish pictures that I haven't posted! Have a great week!

Do you have...

that one friend that always makes you laugh, no matter what that situation? I have many of those, but these pictures remind me of a particular one. They capture our friendship perfectly! Allen, IMHOWBSH. :)

Endings, Beginnings and Kung Foo Panda

School is out for the summer!! (except I go back to work on thurs. for summer school...not as much fun.) I had a super fun time with my roomie and lots of other friends today. Leaving my students was emotional this year. I had a great class. A lot of the 5th graders who graduated were crying. It was sweet to know that we have that impact on them. For a lot of them, we are the only constant thing in their lives. Excited to be done, but sad to let them go. :( Luckily, I'll have some of my same students next year, since I'm teaching a 4/5 combo class.

After school was out, we headed to Visili's(greek food) for lunch. I did this last year to looks like a tradition is starting. :) 5 of my friends met us there and we had a great time. Then, we hung around at home for a few hours before we met my mentor teacher for drinks. It was my last meeting with her. She has been amazing, and I would never be the teacher I am today, without her.

After, we went to the movie theater to see Kung foo panda. It is absolutely hilarious. I think it's pretty appropriate for kids, although the bad guy can be scary for really little ones. There was a bunch of kids in the theater that were laughing the whole time. I enjoyed it, and thought that it was super creative. Try to get out and see it! Happy Summer!

This weekend, I headed out to Yosemite with some of my friends from the young adults group. It was SOOO beautiful. It was a super relaxing time. On Saturday, half of our group hiked half dome, and the rest of us walked around the valley for 5 or 6 hours. Did I mention is was awesome? I so needed the relaxing time! Oh! we also saw a baby bear cub! so cute. :)
What'd you do this weekend?
