The Long Awaited Post

Here is an update. I am still currently at the same school. After fifth grade, a teacher was sick for a week with pneumonia so I worked for her. Than after that a teacher had to go on emergency bed rest for the rest of the school year. So I am finishing out the year at Harcourt. The job search is progressing painfully slow. I do have an interview on Tuesday for a kindergarten teacher in Pike Township. I don't think I will get this particular position, but I hope to convince her to hire me for another position that comes open. Either way, it is good experience. All the teachers at my school tell me that most hiring goes on in July and August so I shouldn't get discouraged right away. I am trying not to, but I am a planner, and I am going to get ulcers waiting.
My parents trip went very well. We had so much fun while they were here. I was able to spend a Mother's Day with my mom for the first time in about 5 years. We followed that up with my graduation at the RCA dome. I really enjoyed my graduation. It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I was really proud to have my parents and my in-law family there to celebrate with me. Thank you all for making it a great day.
Eli has recovered from my parents visit (apparently he does not like to have visitors in the house). He has recently ate an entire dog bed and can not bark due to something caught in his throat. Joe and I are going to give him the weekend to pass it. If it doesn't get better we will bring him to the vet.
Joe loves his new job. He gets to make his own hours so he has been enjoying a few extra Friday's off. Next week we will both have Friday off together. How exciting!
Andy and Emily and Grace moved last weekend. I caught a great picture of Grace in a packing box the last time I babysat. I thought it was really cute so I will post it. Their new house is amazing. I am really happy for them. They are also moved into Washington Township schools so I know that Grace will have a great educational experience.
Well, I hope this catches you all up on live at the Hodson Household. I want to wish my mom a happy birthday. I love you!



8 days left!

I only have 8 days left of school. What am I going to do with myself? Oh yeah, I remember, look for a job! I am feeling the heat. I need to get a job lined up for next year or I might go insane. I do have my parents coming into town in two weeks to look forward to. We are frantically preparing for their arrival. We are doing chores we should have done a while ago. Nothing like company to light a fire. I am really looking forward to my parents visit. They will be meeting Eli and Grace for the first time. I hate that they live so far away, so any time we get to be together is appreciated. I am exhausted, I just finished grading a million papers. I must head to bed before 11.


P.S. Eli celebrated his first birthday 10 days after his uncle Scott. He spent the entire day passed out on the couch (he spent the previous day in doggy daycare so he was tired).
