I have a happy, yet bittersweet heart.

Today, I said goodbye to one of my students whose last day it was before she and her family move to Salt Lake City, Utah. Her confidence has grown tremendously this year and I will miss her spunky personality. We also had lunch together in the classroom with two other buddies. It was pretty much like having friends with my current friends talking about life, death, dogs, babies, marriage. One of them mentioning that she didn't want to get married! Ewww...was more her reaction. But...as one door closes...
I already got an email this morning saying that I was getting a new student starting Monday. Fortunately, it is another girl, but unfortunately...I know nothing about her; personality, academics, attitude. There are so many factors and fears that go in to getting a new student. And one in the middle of the year at that. *Fingers crossed!*

On a few other notes, me and Jason are three weeks in to 30 Days of Yoga! It has been so refreshing to have a workout routine that is not mundane and the same. Each day is a different routine and whether I'm in a good mood or not, I become relaxed as soon as I dive in to the practice. Is anyone else doing this? I'd love to know your thoughts if you are, no matter what day you are on!
I also finished Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan...my first book read in 2015! One down...who knows how many more to go for this year! It was definitely written in the voice of a male senior in high school and makes you really dislike some of the characters for various reasons. It opened my eyes a bit, though, to know what people could go through and their actions are for those with untold mental disorders, loss/grief, and into the mind of someone with ADHD. I haven't experienced many of these things, so to see from another point of view was interesting.
I am currently reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed and have heard mixed reviews on it, but I am going to stick with it since it is something that I actually wanted to read. Maybe I'll get through it this weekend since Jason will be working. I also went crazy with my Scholastic bonus points and ordered 13 books that arrived this week as well as put in an order for two more with my last parent order. Oops?...Looks like I'll be busy for awhile when I do get the chance to read.

What are your plans for the weekend?
