Think Spring

Okay, I don't know about you guys, but I am sick of winter.  It just doesn't seem to want to leave.  I am ready for spring, warmer days and sunshine.  We are supposed to get more snow today, yuck.  I am sick of it.  Sorry I just wanted to get this off my chest because it has really been bugging me.  Hope everyone is doing well this week and all are having fun.  Think spring and hopefully it will come.

No pictures

Hello to all.  Just to let you all know, we did not make it down to the parade last weekend.  We decided to be more productive and do errands instead.  We didn't even get to see the green river.  Tonya enjoyed her trip back home to see friends and family and enjoyed being able to relax for a week without school kids but I don't think she is ready to go back to school.   When she returned she brought her sister, Tammi, along to stay for the weekend.  While Tammi was here we went down to the Redhead Piano bar to enjoy a drink and some music.  It was  a nice little bar but kind of loud.  
I am looking forward to this week because  I get a week off from classes.  I don't get to take any trips while off from classes but I am planning on relaxing as much as possible.  I am also going to start my training for the marathon that we are going to run this coming fall.

I don't know about you, but I hate shots.  I had to get a tetanus shot and a pneumonia shot this week.  The tetanus shot was for school reasons, they wanted my immunizations up to date, so that one was for that.  And I guess  the doctor figured what the heck might as well give me another shot so he gave me pneumonia.  I haven't felt well since receiving these shots, I wonder why.  One bright note for the week, it's the weekend.  Tonya and I are planning on going down and looking at the green river and watching the St. Patrick's day parade tomorrow, so hopefully we will have some pictures to post of our day.  Tonya is pretty happy that her spring break started today, she is really looking forward to a break from the kids.  She is also looking forward to her trip to Mi. this next week to visit some friends.  Me on the other hand have another week of classes before my spring break so I have some studying to do for mid-terms, woohoo.  Keep in touch and to all my friends and family out there, keep it real.

Well it's a new week and I made it through last week.  I am happy to say my presentations went well and I got through them without to much hassle.  Now I just have to worry about mid-terms coming up.  Not much going on this week, we were able to keep pretty low key and not get into to much trouble.  Tonya is still doing the ISAT testing this next week and is really looking forward to spring break which is a week away.  I think she is really looking forward to just be able to get away from me.  I hope every one out there is doing well and hopefully we can see some of you guys that we haven't seen in awhile.  For now I bid you farewell.

Wow, It's been awhile

Hey Friends and Family,
Sorry it's been so long but we've been busy.  I have been really busy with classes and trying to keep up with homework.  I forgot how tough it can be to be in school and work 30 hours a week.  I am still really enjoying my classes but I at times I feel a little overwhelmed, but luckily I have a great wife who supports me and helps me with my studying.  I find that really great.  I am enjoying my new job as well. 
Tonya doesn't really have much new news right now but she is looking forward to finishing ISATs (Illinois's state testing) and really doesn't like standardized tests with special education students.  She is really looking forward to visiting friends and family for spring break.
I also want to apologize for the long delay between blogs but I have been busy with school like I said and Tonya doesn't like to do this.  I need to get back to studying because I have a mid-term project, an essay, and a creative presentation and they are all due this week.  Not looking forward to this week.  So keep in touch, and Katie I will definitely try to update this more often now.
