School started for teachers about 2 weeks ago and the kids came back yesterday. Life has been busy with lesson plans, moving my classroom around, sweeping and mopping up crickets (have I mentioned the cricket problem we have in Austin?). Luckily Dave came with me one day and spent 4 hours helping me clean ALL the cricket (parts) up. I guess that's the price I pay for teaching at a school with portables. I almost took a picture of the pile we had swept up, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. So for now, you'll have to just imagine.
Now on to more lovely things...
Before school started, we had some wonderful guests in town, 3 times over!
First Dave's youngest brother Bryan came for a visit. He had a wedding to attend in Dallas and made the extra trip out to see us in Austin for a few days. We took him out to eat at some of the yummiest eateries in town (Chuy's and Rudy's were included of course).
