::A Week in our Life - Day Three (4/21/10)

6:10am Got up and ready...then got Addi up and going. Joe got up and got her dressed. She went and got her coat for him so she could go to Robyn's house.

7:40am Got to school and had a pretty busy day, trying to get ready for my last major (planned) meeting of the year for one of my students.
2nd US History - Worked on maps and book assignment, then they had notes and got to watch a clip of blitzkrieg.
Homeroom - Students mostly socialized, no one wanted to do their testing today.
3rd US History - Worked on maps and book assignment, then they had notes and got to watch a clip of blitzkrieg.
4th World Geography - Students finished their itinerary for a trip to Africa to watch the World Cup
5th, 6th and 7th US History - Below is a pic of my team teacher, Kelly, going over notes from the Great Depression and New Deal powerpoint. (Kelly is 7 months preggo!)

3:45 - Left work, picked up Addi and headed for Grandma and Grandpa Aring's. Last week Grandpa bought 150 baby mallard ducks that we needed to go visit again before they got huge. Addi had so much fun!

...then we had to go visit a few of the other birds too

5:30 Made supper quick, ate and picked up.

7:00pm Next was bath time, which is always Addi's absolute fav!

7:45pm Our little daredevil! She has stood all the way up without holding on before. Needless to say this has gotten taken away from her numerous times!

8:30 Bedtime routine for Addi and she is out right away. Then picked up the house some.
9:30 Jumped in the shower and got ready for bed.
10pm Did a few dishes by hand and then hit the bed.


  1. Awe! She's gonna grow up to love animals just as much as you! So cute!

  2. Love the duck pictures - Skyler would love to see them!

  3. She's definitely an animal lover. Her first words were Dad, Mom, and Dog! And she's been howling like a dog since like 9mos or earlier! Skyler should come over and see them before they get much bigger, they seem to double in size every few days.
