So many exciting things are going on
that I cannot wait to share with all of you.
Here's the short and sweet version!
* Yesterday was a special day in the Soladay household
because someone had a birthday.
Carter gave his new teacher a small gift to help make this school year start on the right "note".
See, they're notepads.
Preston started 5th grade today
which means he's at the intermediate campus.
He's big time, people.
Such a sweet kid.
This kid started high school today.
High school, my friends.
It's going to take me awhile to get used to saying that.
Bless his heart,
he was so nervous this morning.
His biggest fear was having to eat lunch in close proximity to juniors and seniors.
Broke my heart to hear his worries.
Can't wait to see what great things this school year holds!
* Speaking of this school year,
remember when I said I was going to substitute teach this year,
and I made those little clipboards to give to all the principals here?
Well, 30 minutes after dropping one off last week at one of the elementary schools,
I received a phone call from the principal asking me if I would be
interested in doing a long term substitute job for a teacher going on maternity leave.
Needless to say, last Thursday I met with the principal, assistant principal and the teacher going on leave,
and by the end of the day, the principal called me to confirm my employment!
And guess what I'll be teaching:
This girl will be an art teacher beginning September 6th until sometime in January!
I am super excited about this opportunity.
Yay for art!
* One more final piece of exciting news.
Ryan surprised me with an anniversary getaway for us in early October!
He booked us a 4 day trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to celebrate 4 wonderful years of marriage!
The beach, the beautiful weather, the great company.
It doesn't get any better.
Oh, except I get to fly first class.
We cannot wait!
Short and sweet.
Have a great week, friends!
