V-dub in zee haus

Bye-bye Taurus. Hello V-dub!

That's right we bought a new car. I needed something that would get better gas mileage and Mark wanted something with working air conditioning and 4-wheel drive.

It is so cute. The color is Harvest Moon Beige. It is really just a cream color. It has black interior with cool colored displays. Automatic windows, locks and cruise control. It is so different than driving the Jeep. Quiet and less bumpy.

Mark wanted me to add that we are keeping it real on zee engineering tip, ya'll!
That is a combo of German and Texan!

See you out on the open road!

I took a break...but now I am back

I took a break from blogging but thought that I would start up again to let anyone who reads this know what is up.

As I am sure most (if not all) know by now that Jason is back in Iraq. Same place pretty same things as before. He, I feel, will be pretty safe. I was able to go visit him before he left. It was great to see where they live in Yuma. It is amazing how far base housing has come. I remember a few years ago on another trip to visit him, Mom showed me where we lived in Camp Lejeune. What a difference that 30 years makes! I hope that there next home is as nice especially since they are going to have another family member by then. I can't wait to see my new niece or nephew. Please pray for him and his fellow servicemen and women. No matter how you feel about the war these men and women just go and do what they are told without question. They deserve our support to the fullest.

School has started up again. I thought that I was going to have a great year and I still will but not they way that I thought. Due to our low enrollment the teacher that I was team teaching with is being moved to another school. For those of that are left it means that we will get 5-6 more kids in each class. Since we were already somewhat departmentalized (each of us only teaching 2-3 subjects) we are going keep it that way however instead of teaching math and science twice a day I am going to teach it 3 times a day. I was excited to have the really "good" kids this year and the change will cut down my time with them. At least I won't have bad kids for an entire day nonstop and they are nothing like what I had last year. I do have one that knows what strippers and poles are. Where do they get this stuff in the 4th grade?

Mark and I are trying to get things organized and put together here. We are just taking it step by step. We are hoping to try and get a deck on in the late fall or over the winter. Some place for entertaining and grilling. Better get going for now. Talk to you again soon.
