I run out of the car to see the front right tire completely flat. To the rim. I dash inside the house and yell (before I made it all the way inside), "Dave fire up the motorcycle I need a ride to school."
Dave was in his pjs (his day off) but I have never seen him get dressed so fast. We were on the motorcycle on our way to my school in 2 minutes flat (no pun intended).
That was the easy part.
Have you ever ridden on a motorcycle in 45 degree weather with no sunglasses on or face cover for your eyes? My eyes were watering worse than when I watched that really good Liberty Mutual commercial (posted below). I have 2 words for you ladies...smeared mascara. Also crazy hair.
Welcome to day 2 of work. I am sure my boss loved introducing me to the higher ups, "This is Jessica, she was a lot more hygenic when we first hired her."
Oh here's the commercial that I was talking about. It's a goodie
Yes you heard (read) me right. I have a day job. I call it that because I am still doing photography on Saturdays.
I am a teacher for an alternative high school in Round Rock. Those of you who really know me (this is kind of a test to see if you are a real friend) know that I love teaching and especially high school.
a. public education needs more funding.
Why do I say that?
Ok...ok...there are more important things to a job than chairs. But seriously? No desk chair?
b. I think this job is going to be awesome.
-I am teaching Child Development and Parenting. So far I have met a few teachers and just observed. I am sharing a classroom (review point a earlier in post) with another teacher and we are going to be a power team, I can already tell.
So cheers to my new job. Cheers to being a teacher (one of the greatest professions ever!) and cheers to teaching birth control methods to my alternative students.
Oh YA!! It's my littlest sister's 18th birthday today. I wanna give a shout out to LeAnne! Happy Birthday beautiful sister who I love and admire:
the birthday girl
I do have a question for you though. Are you in Oklahoma and want to get your pictures taken?
I am going to be in Owasso from November 13-15 and am booking a few photo sessions while I am in town. If you want to get your Christmas card photo done or any other type of photos, shoot me an email:
And check back soon for some updates from the Shumways.
By the way, Austin is a great place to be in November. 70s and sunny all week. This weather is making up for the hotttttttt summer.
