Hi!

The word "busy" does not even begin to describe our lives lately...
I (Leanne) spend about 12 hrs a day or more at school... and then go back on the weekends. I've been known to tell some people that this job is slowly killing me. :o) In short, working at the Academy is your typical first year of teaching on heavy doses of "steroids". The teachers I work with are incredible and most of the time we just sit around and tell funny stories until tears are rolling down our cheeks... It is exactly the kind of therapy we all need at the end of the day.
Kris has been busy with "house stuff" - painting, moving furniture, unpacking and cleaning... Thankfully he is now in his 3rd year of teaching and is therefore a little less busy with school work. But he IS working on that Masters degree... and loving every minute of it (heavy sarcasm on that last one).

We love living in our new house... we honestly don't know what to do with all of the space! It's been fun to watch our kids run around the fenced in backyard looking for lost turkeys and small mammals. Thankfully they haven't slaughtered any... yet. :o/


Our amazing families and incredible friends have been keeping us afloat ... they've been a HUGE HUGE help with everything from baking us cookies to hauling big boxes around.
Until next time...
- Us
