Keeping Up With a Busy Boy!

Anderson has really kept us busy lately. He is so much fun to chase around but I do find myself looking forward to naptime! This past week/weekend Grandma was here and it was so nice to have her help. We went to Cirque Du Soleil in Denver and then James and I were able to go out for dinner. It's so nice that our families are able to come visit so much.
This week I'm only working two days, which is so nice after last week. Last week my head just hurt because we had mid-year benchmark assessments and we were just so busy with grading and entering data. The two days I worked this week I was absolutely exhausted. Having 28 kids in my class this year is a lot to keep up with, especially when they are so full of energy. I do love them but class size does make a huge difference. I'm worried about what will happen next year when our district has to cut over 20 million dollars. Yikes! As a teacher, it's sad to see great programs go by the wayside because it does negatively impact students. I sure hope that what Obama said was true about investing in the education of our children. It does make me wonder if things will improve before Anderson goes to school.
Anyway, here's a few pictures of the past week/weekend.
Wow, this happened in about a minute. I forgot
to shut the door.

What mom?

I'll just take it with me.
A little milk on my face won't hurt.
Still LOVE the tent!

Enjoying a beautiful CO day!

I haven't been checking in for a little while, and wow...has Anderson grown! Such a cute little guy.
Gotta love toddlers. The mess never ends. They are so worth it though. :-)

We have to keep the TP put up or else Dozer will eat it, so we'll be golden when we have a toddler in the house! :)

So jealous to see Anderson in a light jacket outside!! Education is pretty depressing to think about right now. It's scary to think what will happen in the next 3 or 4 years. I hope things improve!
