No, we aren’t dead.

No, we aren’t dead.

Sometimes it feels like we’re dead though. Yesterday at work, one of the single guys I work with asked if I had any exciting plans for the weekend. I told him I was just excited to sleep past 7:30, wash my dishes, and do some laundry.  I guess I’m becoming one of those people that gives single people the idea that married people are boring. I’ll try to do better.

This is my final semester of classes at Utah State and I am in the process of taking care of all kinds of paperwork for graduation and student teaching (both of which I will do in the fall – yeah!!).  I recently passed the English, Language, Literature, and Composition Praxis exam, which apparently means I am highly qualified to teach English. Right now I am doing a clinical for my minor, so I observe two freshmen co-ed Physical Education classes and one Aerobics class. I’ve already taught two classes on floor hockey, explained the rules of racquetball, and taught a couple of kickboxing combinations. Sounds impressive, I know, but you should have seen me all tangled up in the cord for the mic headset . . .

Me and my class 🙂

Noel is keeping himself very busy with homework since he is currently taking a combination of senior level and graduate level courses. He recently gave my little brother (a budding engineer himself) the idea to make a Reuben’s tube (google it if you don’t know what I’m talking about)  for his science fair project . . . so we may be having a dance party in our back yard when it gets warmer. I’ll try to remember to post the pictures of our Rueben’s tube later. Noel graduates with his Master’s in Mechanical Engineering next spring and who knows what we’ll do after that. In the meantime, we will try to fit blogging into our schedule a little more.
