The Obwald Kids

Andrew and I baby sat the Obwald kids this past Friday and Saturday while Dave and Erin had a Southeast/Fig get-a-away for some church dreaming. Our weekend consisted of some charades, Mario Cart and Just Dance for the Wii, taking a trip to the splash park, Barbies (this playing with Barbies stuff was a 1st for me), watching an episode of Little House of the Prarie and I Love Lucy, and a birthday party for Emma and Casey Jo Getz. We had a great time being parents for a few days. If only they all came out well behaved and potty trained!!!

My classroom blog

Now that school has started, I will definitely be posting a lot less on my blog.... I guess someone has to bring home the bacon=) In place of my posts here I am going to have a classroom blog this year to help my parents keep up with what is going on with their child at school. Just in case any one is interested in checking in on my little squirrels, my blog address is...

Back in the swing of things....

I mean, staring Denise Feil...

Well I have officially finished my 1st day of school for the 4th time. This year things are much the same as the last 2 which I am totally excited about.

Reagan Elementary
5th grade
Room 17
Go Red Hawks!!!

Today went extremely well. I only have 19 students at the moment which sounds like a great thing but which also means we will be the feeder school that gets all of the new kids in the district... in other words... new kids ALL the time. I am excited for this year. I could not ask to for a better school to work at.

Huntington Lake

With my last few days of summer vacation I decided to head up to Huntington Lake to hangout with The Krause family for a few days. I have amazing memories camping at Huntington during high school and hanging out this week definitely added a few more great memories to that list. When I first arrived, Layne and I decided to go for a hike up to Nelly Lake. One minor problem.... I didn't bring any tennis shoes. Well, I am always up for a challenge so my rainbow sandals took me the 4 miles up and the 4 miles back. I was pleasantly surprised at how good my feet felt afterwards. Some good camp fires, smores, reading, and conversation filled up the rest of our time. Thanks Krause family for letting me join your vacation!!!

Don't judge our grungy look.... we are camping with no showers=)

thrift store finds...

I went to the thrift store the other day and came home with a few new kitchen decorations. Not bad for $3 total.

I love that I can just spray paint this tray whatever color I want to use it for all sorts of things.

girls' day

Anna, Sarah and I spent the day up at Shaver this past Saturday. We originally went up to hike Potter's Pass but couldn't end up finding it so we changed our plans. We hiked a well known trail behind the lake to the edge of the water and had a picnic there. After that we went to the marina and rented kayaks for an hour. So much fun.... we took those things all over the lake. The water was so perfect we had to jump in. To finish off the day we headed to the Hungry Hut for some ice cream. What a great way to spend a Saturday.
