I meant to post last night, but with unpacking, grocery shopping, and a trip out to belatedly celebrate my birthday, I just didn't have time. :)
But I wanted to pop on and let you know we got home safe and sound. We had a wonderful trip with my family. As soon as my mom gives me the pictures (well, posts them on FB), I will make sure to do a post dedicated to Harry Potter Land (it was AWESOME).
The Thursday before we left to go, I was contacted by a teacher in the same district I just finished long-term subbing in, but from MY old high school. She needed a long-term sub for the beginning of the year until just after Thanksgiving, and she asked if I would be interested. With the trip in the way, we had to wait until today to meet for an interview.
To avoid the suspense, I got the job and start during the last week of August. It isn't a full time job, but everything is one step closer to a permanent position. I'm going to be in the same district and will be teaching pretty much the same classes-sophomore and senior English, as well as one section of Government. I'm excited and happy to have something in the fall.
Anyway, I'll probably get back to a regular posting schedule tomorrow night or Wednesday. I have a lot of things to discuss, but I'm not too far behind. I only read two novels over my vacation. I spent more time talking with my family and relaxing, so I don't feel at all guilty about that. But now? We're down to business! :)
