Short update....

Not much else is going on, Florida has basically been the highlight of this semester.

Im teaching German 105 now which is basically the first German class these kids take. I like my students a lot but they can kind of be pains in the butt, like normal college kids, and its a lot of work on top of my classes so Im still 50/50 on whether I like it or not. I was REALLY blessed and got an awesome class tho, I dont have any problems like most of the other teachers so I am definitely thanking my lucky stars for that! I just need to remind myself of that when they are being whiney and having an off day... or week... :-p

My 2 classes are going well that I am taking. Lukas also started his first class for his MBA last week so we are both mostly sitting around these days doing homework together. Kind of boring but hey... that is life I guess. Im really proud of him for going back to school, espec. since English isnt his native language... I know how hard it is taking classes in a foreign language!
He should graduate Spring of 2011 and I will be done Spring of 2010 so hopefully I will get a job for a year or so and then we shall see where the wind takes us after that. On to bigger and better things I hope!

For now I guess life is just homework, homework, homework, with maybe some fun in between with friends. We went to the birthday party of my german friend Judith (in pink) which was a lot of fun. It was all girls and Lukas which was kind of funny... but he is friends with her too so she was nice and invited him :) She is probably going back to Germany this summer and finishing her studies there which makes me sad. She is definitely one of the coolest people I have met here in Delaware since we have moved back and I am going to miss her alot. Its hard being so busy with grad school and not having time to hang out with people and knowing they will be leaving soon... sadness... :(

Went also went Iceskating about a month ago with a friend (wow, its been that long... insane) which was fun. Im kind of lazy and just let Lukas pull me around but he was a good sport about it and didnt let me fall down, not even once :)

I guess its all about finding good times in between the work that makes life happy and makes the work seem not so bad. I really need to work on that more... there are so many people at school and at church I would love to become better friends with and have missed so much time already because I have been so busy with school and half of them are leaving this summer and never coming back. I guess I will just have to make the most of the next few months and find time in between the reading and teaching and papers and and and and and and and and.... :-p

Florida Trip Update!

Its totally been FOREVER since Ive posted, holy cow... Im not really sure anyone reads this all that much tho so maybe I dont have to feel so bad, haha.

Anyway, in January we had a great week long trip to Florida to visit my friends Sam and Lindsay. They are awesome and it was nice to have some warm weather although unfortunately it was rather cold while we were there... but we had 2 sunny days and it was warmer than Delaware so I cant complain!

We went to St. Augustine and checked out the beach one day and also got to drink from the fountain of youth! No joke... crazy tourist trap, nasty water, but hey... atleast Im going to live forever, right?! lol

Lukas and I went to Sea World which was AMAZING... seriously one of the coolest places I have ever been...amazing shows. I recommend it to EVERYONE!

Otherwise we visited Sam´s school, saw a butterfly garden, saw some gators, and generally just had good times hanging out with our friends and enjoying the vacation.

TONS more pictures on Facebook if you are interested... and if you arent on Facebook, well then, I guess you just arent cool enough to see the rest of our pictures then! (Yea mom, that means you... if dad, aunt bonnie and uncle john even all have facebook you know you are falling behind! haha)
