Summer camp

Well, our camp week has come and gone and we both survived! Matt spent his week up at the fieldhouse working the little kids football camp. He had a great group of really fun kids to work with and coach for a week of football. I spent my week with the cheerleaders at KISD cheer camp. All of the junior high cheer squads from the district were there so the girls got to meet other squads from across the district and I got a chance to hang out with the other cheer sponsors from the different schools. We are adding 2 new junior high campuses next year so the camp this year was HUGE! I'm really proud of my girls- they earned 2 Superior Squad ribbons and the Spirit Award at camp! Yay! They did sooo good and just really impressed me. I also had 2 girls make All-Star which is a really big deal for them and KJH.

This week Matt is in San Antonio for coaching school. It's his last hoo-rah before practice starts for football season. I have a week of staff development this week :( and soon enough we will be back to school!

Summertime and the livin's easy

sum.mer- noun: a teachers reward for a job well done.

It's our first summer together as a married couple and as teachers we both have the option to do NOTHING! I have taken that to heart and have spent most of my time relaxing at the pool, watching movies, looking for houses and scrapbooking. Matt, on the other hand, has been working the summer conditioning camp up at the high school everyday. He gets up about 5:30 each morning and gets home around 8pm each night with a break for lunch from 1-4pm. That does not sound like summer to me!! But I think he likes being up there with the kids and the other coaches- and he's getting paid! It will help us buy that new house we want!

We were able to take the first week of summer off and go to Florida with Matt's family! We had a blast in Rosemary Beach with everyone and it was the perfect start to summer. The kids all drove up there in the Tahoe together and Steph and I almost got through 3 seasons of The Office on the way there. We spent most of our time there either at the beach, pool, putting together a puzzle, and reading. But most of all we all just got the spend some time together!

Matt and I both have camps next week for football and cheerleading- that should be fun. Then we just have a short amount of time until school gets back in session. I'm actually really excited to be back to work, and I know Matt is dying for football to get started.

It's the calm before the storm.
