As the year is quickly coming to a close, I’ve been reflecting back on what the past year has held. I think this is one of those that is better posted in pictures, as I’m almost always found with my camera.
January: DH and I went on our honeymoon to New Zealand. This photo was taken on our day cruise through the Milford Sound on the South Island.
February: DH turned 25. Here he is, blowing out all of those lovely candles. 🙂
March: A momentous occasion occurred–I managed to keep a plant alive for a whole year. Better yet, it is still with us!
April: My cohort and I went to the Saint Louis Zoo for an in-depth learning experience about the various resources the Zoo has for elementary educators. I *heart* penguins.
May: DH and I celebrated our first anniversary. We spent the day at a winery and then had a lovely dinner out on the patio of the Boathouse in Forest Park.
June: We took a trip out to Colorado for Memorial Day weekend. We spent a lot of time with my family, but took a day trip up to the mountains to visit one of my favorite places, Breckenridge.
July: We adopted a kitten! When we got Noelle, she was so tiny, she could fit on DH’s shoulder. I was no longer outnumbered by males in the house!
August: This was a super busy month! It started off with a visit from my in-laws (ILs). We took them all over the city, including the beautiful Botanical Gardens.
September: Not only did I start student teaching, but we took 2 weekends away to attend weddings in Cincinnati, and Illinois.
October: Student teaching and grad school were in full swing. I LOVED my student teaching experience. I am so glad that I get to sub there!
November: Probably one of the busiest, school-wise. Although my student teaching was winding down, school was revving up. I spent most of my days working at home with these guys…not that they seemed to mind my company.
December: The culmination of a big year–I finished my portfolio, “graduated” with my Masters, applied to get my Ph.D., and subbed a lot at the elementary school. We then spent Christmas up in Illinois with my ILs, as well as my Dad.
Overall, gotta say, great 2010!
