What We've Been Up To...

I am loving what I do. I honestly have never loved teaching more than I enjoy teaching seventh grade! But I am hating the other conversations I'm having to have with my students...marijuana, divorce, abuse, sex, meeting strangers on the internet, facebook, and more. I so wish that wasn't a part of their reality, but I'm happy I can be a role model and ear to listen and support them.

My mom, for Christmas, got us a gift card for the movie theatre and babysitting to boot. We could not be more thrilled as Mr. Howard and I have not gone to the theatre since Connor was born (strike that...my sister, Mr. Howard, and I went to see Harry Potter once a few months ago). We planned out all our movie dates for the next few months and tried to get them all in before I potentially have to go on bedrest in June. It will be so nice to have a built-in date night once/twice a month for the next three months!

Mr. Howard and I already planned one of our date nights for Valentine's Day and made a reservation at Ruth's Chris. Can you tell we're determined to get in a few dates before the twins are here?

In February, our friend Casey was coming to visit and we were going to go to do a couples Napa overnight trip! Unfortunately he can't make it, but we decided to make it a romantic getaway just Mr. Howard and I. My sister graciously agreed to watch our little guy for us so that we can enjoy some wine (well, I'LL be enjoying water) and good company for a quick little retreat. Won't I look hilarious going to wineries with a pregnant belly and morning sickness?!

Connor learned how to jump. I have a very adorable video that my husband took, but he held the camera the wrong way. So you'd have to turn your head to the side to watch it. Instead, I'll try to do another one tomorrow.

Courtney, I was going to email you. I might need you to watch him on the 24th for a few hours for our big ultrasound. It's a Thursday when Mr. Howard is normally supposed to be off; that Thursday, however, he has to work!
