School starts back tomorrow! I'm actually excited. We're going from four 90-minute classes per day (with alternating sets of classes) to seven 50-minute classes per day. In the past, I've noticed a tendency to loose students around the 60-minute mark, so I think the shorter class will work in my favor. Oh, and on Sunday, I spent 12 hours at the computer working on curriculum for the year. Ugh.
Students = Yay
Curriculum = Ugh
See. We're reviewing things. I'm already in teacher mode. :D
On Saturday, I did this:
I have my Master's degree. Finally. Amen.
By the way, I think deep down I only wanted the Master's degree so I could get the awesome sleeves. And do this:
Being dignified is so overrated. :D
And because I feel bad for holding out on you all, I will finally share photos from our mission trip. I'll start with Krakow, because that's where the trip started.
For me, this photo captures the essence of Krakow. I loved the center of town -- lots of stuff going on, but it didn't feel rushed or busy. People seemed to know how to take it easy.
Lots and lots of street performers. They were fun to watch.
Mike + maps = happy. Mike + ginormous map = really happy.
My husband is very resourceful. He bought the phone card he is holding using no less than three languages. (First he asked, in Polish, if the postal worker spoke English. Then he asked for a phone card in German...not sure why, but it made sense at the time. Then he and the postal worker spoke English.)
The name of our hotel literally meant "the hotel under the castle".
This is the castle.
This is the Wisla River (pronounced vee-swa, because the "l" should have a slash through it, making the w sound. I don't know how to make and "l" with a slash through it.). This was right across from our hotel.
Doesn't hubs look like he's going to jump somebody?
This sign made me smile. I was on the lookout for children carrying giant lollipops across the street.
Gelato and lodi. Loves it. (And check out that light fixture!)
"Hamburgery" is a fun word. It makes me think of "tomfoolery", but with hamburgers.
Next up...photos from Wisla.
