2.1.12 – Peace out, January!

1 Feb

It’s been awhile…the end of January was somewhat uneventful and included a lot of traveling for Kyle and a lot of school and internship work for Jamie.  Kyle spent two weeks traveling all over Pennsylvania and back to Illinois for work.  The long period away was not much fun for either of us, but Jamie kept busy interning at her school, getting homework done, and crafting (thanks, Pinterest!).  Jamie attempted to fly into Bloomington the same weekend as Kyle but got her dates mixed up and ended up being there the weekend after.  Oops!  It worked out well though, because I was able to attend Nicole’s baby shower (can’t wait to meet their baby girl!). We both really enjoyed catching up with friends and both got to see our all-star coaching friend, KB, coach his girls during his undefeated season!  Jamie also got to help prepare decorations for Leslie’s first birthday coming up this weekend, which was a lot of fun.

We are both back to the grind this week.  Jamie’s internship has been almost a full time job, but she is learning a ton about being an elementary principal.  When she isn’t at school, she is trying to get her homework done for her online class.  She called today about her teaching certificate status, and of course the state moved to an online system in December and wasn’t going to process anything until she registered online.  She was supposed to know this from an e-mail that has been in her junk e-mail folder since December.  So frustrating… but she is one step closer to being able to substitute teach.  Kyle is still working long hours but is getting more settled into his new role as his projects are starting up this month.

The weather this week has been amazing!  It feels like spring outside.  Hopefully it will stay this warm over the weekend, and we will have a chance to do some exploring!  Check back soon for a weekend update. We are looking forward to a fun-filled February with visits from friends and less traveling for work.  Have a great rest of the week!  We miss you all!
