Lately, Travis and I have been obsessed withy walking on the Line Creek Trail. It’s only a few miles from our house and it is absolutely gorgeous! Since Travis is still in school, I have had a few days of summer single. Today, I took a 90 minute walk on the trail. Travis makes fun of me when I stop to take pictures, so I took this opportunity to snap a few.
So beautiful! Here’s my life update. I finished my last days at Benton High School and officially drove away for my last time as a St. Joseph School District employee. I will miss the wonderful staff and students I have had the pleasure of working with the past three years.
Travis and I graduated with our Masters! UMKC has a wonderfully short ceremony.
I have also accepted a job coaching the C Team volleyball at Platte City High School. I had my first practice with the girls yesterday. I’m very excited to get involved more within my new district and the girls have been really fantastic so far. I can tell it is going to be a fun season!
We also dog sat for my parents this past week. Brazil is a sweet, but old greyhound, who is afraid of lawn mowers and thunderstorms. We had A LOT of both last weekend. The weather was either perfect ( lawn mowers) or downpour (thunderstorms). She also wears doggie diapers and one night managed to take her diaper off downstairs and pee upstairs. She also woke us up every two-three hours by panting right in our ears. Even Uno was feeling sleep deprived. Needless to say, I like my sleep and am NOT ready for children yet!
Time to cuddle up and start working on my summer reading list. I’m currently working on What Alice Forget and have Reconstructing Amelia, I Was Told There’d be Cake, Winter’s Tale, and The Stench of Honolulu: A Tropical Adventure waiting for me! Of course, it’s done best with my favorite snuggle bug!
