A couple of weeks ago Shay did a "Day in the Life" post and I called her to tell her how much I loved it and she said I should do one myself... so here it is!
I picked last Wednesday since it was a pretty "normal" day for us (and Dave wasn't working that night).
My day started a little before 5:30.
I made a cup of tea (I drink a LOT of tea) and sat down at the computer to finish up an Algebra lesson for later in the morning. I made sure my blog post published and lesson planned for a few days ahead.
I took my bedhead pic for the #eandajanchallenge on Instagram...
Usually Mason sleeps until at least 7:00, but on this morning he was up and playing Legos while I worked.
6:30 and I was checking my email on my phone and getting ready. I have a Matilda Jane problem. Obviously.
Dave woke Luke up around 6:30 and asked him to get dressed. Yeah right. (sidenote... those pics on my wall are all sideways... I'm trying to figure out what to do on that wall. hahaha)
I was getting ready and Luke came to tell me he was ready. He's not a morning person.
Meanwhile, Dave was getting breakfast ready and he put Mason (who had been up since 5:30) in the high chair because he was throwing a fit over nothing.
... Luke brushed his teeth...
We left the house at 7 and headed straight to the donut shop to pick up some donut holes for my small group. Luke picked out a chocolate covered sprinkle donut, but it was a tough decision. :)
Second stop - Starbucks. Mr. Ron was on a business trip, so the stop was pretty quick. Is it sad that they see me come in and have my drink waiting for me by the time I get to the counter???
My classroom is in a portable building (classroom tour coming on a later day!) and we were pulling in around 7:30.
Garrett Lee is an AWESOME Freshman (who I taught for 7th and 8th grade, I have his brother in 7th grade this year and they go to Church with us) and he meets Luke in my classroom to walk him to class almost every day.
Luke left for his classroom and I got ready for my first period class.
Honors Algebra 1 from 7:45 - 8:30
After Algebra 1 I had an 8th Grade Pre-Algebra and they were taking a test that day... hence my Smartboard when they came in :)
On Wednesdays we have Chapel every other week and the weeks we don't have chapel we have Small Groups. I have 9 girls in my group (6th, 7th and 8th grades) and they're AWESOME! It's such a great time to connect, pray for each other and take a little break from the day. I usually make a snack for them (because of course it's better with food!), but the night before I was out and so I didn't have time to make the dessert I had planned.
... and then I taught two more Pre-Algebra classes and 2 Math 7 classes.
Lunch is at 12:45 and usually the other teachers and I eat in the lunchroom, but on this day our PTF had a luncheon for us in our Middle School workroom. AWESOME!
After lunch, I went back to my classroom and graded papers, made keys and prepped for the next day.
Every other Wednesday I volunteer in Luke's art class.
At 3:45 I picked Luke up from ESS (extended school supervision) and found him playing blocks with a bunch of boys :)
Luke needed a potty break before we headed to the van and so I snapped a bathroom selfie so y'all could see my outfit and crazy hair at the end of the day.
Mason LOVES Miss Lisa and this is him EVERY day when I go get him. "MOOOOMY!!!" The only times he doesn't run to give me a big hug is if he's still working on his smoothie (Lisa makes him a special smoothie every day... fresh fruit, almond milk and half and half. hahaha)
I got everyone loaded up in the van and then we had to make a quick detour to see some "AWESOME CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES!!!" :)
We made a Sonic run (mama needed an iced tea!)
... and when we got home Griffin was EXCITED to get out and play (and yes... that's her bow around her neck. ooops!)
We got home and the boys took off to play and I put Griffin in her pack and play while I got changed (she's too mobile for me just to put her on the floor) and she screamed the entire time.
Boys were still playing, Griffin was in the exersaucer and I got dinner started. Meatloaf, potatoes, etc.
After dinner sillies :)
PJs for everyone, bottle for Griffin and 20 minutes of movie time for the boys. Griffin was down around 7:00, Mason 7:30 and Luke 8:00.
At this point I stopped taking pics, but I took a shower, graded papers, and watched TV with Dave. I was asleep around 11:00.
So, there you have it! A day in the life of me :)
