First year they scare you to death. Second year they work you to death. 

Ain't that the truth. 

     Anthony has been busy, busy, busy these past few weeks. He decided to do a field placement class clerking for a judge in Perry, which is about 30 miles south of Macon. It is at the supreme court so he is getting to know a lot of people and the experience is great! He was also called into the Young Mens at church (leaving me alone in primary with a whole bunch of 10 and 11 year old boys...weird). See? Busy.
     I have been substitute teaching for Head Start. For those of you who don't know, "The Head Start Program is a program of the United Stated Department of Health and Human Services that provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families." In a nutshell, I am a preschool substitute teacher. It pays almost less than the money it costs to drive there, but I'm still grateful to have a job. And it's nice to think maybe I can make a difference in these kids lives. Or at least for a little while.
     We moved apartments! Ah... makes me smile just thinking about it. However we should have done more research before moving in. The apartment complex only has one internet provider and the bandwidth is way too small to accommodate everyone. I don't use my computer as anymore (never between the hours of 4pm and 12am). But this could also be because it is dying. However it also means that Anthony spends less time at home cause he really can't research or really do anything with our terrible internet, so he stays at school. Another contributing factor to him being busy.     Anyways, things are going well.

Sorry there are no pictures. I'll post some of our apartment as soon as we buy a vacuum.
