It seems that I have been horrible at taking pictures lately! I am always forgetting my camera at home. Once in a while I'll snap a picture on the cell phone, but do you think I am smart enough to get them off my phone?! Things at the Johnson home have been busy as usual. We (as in Zachary) are loving football season and the constant stream of games to watch. I start my field experience next week teaching in the classroom for the month of November where I will be doing my student teaching in January. I am excited, and also very nervous. I always felt like the day of student teaching would never come and now it is just around the corner. I am most excited about doing read-alouds with the students, can't wait!
A few weekends ago we went to the Salem Hills High School football game with our awesome friends the Hunters. It was so cold, but so fun. Jody and I were tempted to stay for the post game dance party, but the husbands dragged us back home to roll some dice. I will forever be indebted to Bronco and Jody for teaching us the best dice games known to man. Hours and hours of fun!

Last weekend we got to watch Josie and Bella while their parents went on vacation to Seattle (I was totally jealous by the way!) We had such a fun fun time with our sweet little nieces though. We rode horses, had a BBQ, and went to the indoor water park, which by the way is totally awesome!

Isn't the cutest picture ever?!?!

Even though we had a total blast with the girls, I am not going to lie that it wasn't a total eye opener for us! Kids are way more work than I thought, and it's not like I haven't been around kids or people with kids a lot?! Sunday morning was the hardest, I felt like I was running around like a crazy woman all morning. Our church doesn't start until 11, and we still walked in a few minutes late. Even though I was dead tired by the time Sunday night rolled around I loved every minute of it, and would do it over again every weekend in a heartbeat!

thank you for finally updating. I'm glad you've had some fun lately. If you want some real fun, come to our house. Actually you will just see me being a "crazy women" with my kids. Yeah, being a mom is busy when they're so young and helpless. I have church at 1:00 and am always 5 or 10 late.

ah aren't kids fun!

We had my four nieces a couple weekends ago while their parents went to New Orleans for a few days. Then last Christmas we had my sister's 6 kids while they went Christmas shopping for a couple days. It was crazy fun.

What grades do you want to teach?
