Time is going by fast. Can you believe it will be September this upcoming week?! I haven't written a blog in quite a while, for the simple fact that my baby girl Mikaela has me wrapped around her finger and I'm as busy as can be with my little peanut. Mikaela will be one month old on the 31st-- which I can hardly believe! She's already changed so much in appearance and behavior. My husband, Mikaela, and I have been at home for the most part, but we have also gone out to dinner at Applebee's, and we even made a drive out to Arvin to visit my grandparents from my mother's side. (Extra points if you know where Arvin is! And no using Google maps....) I have about one month left of maternity leave. I hope time slows down a little with my baby girl, but I am also looking to meeting you all!
I hope you are all getting in the groove of the new school year-- especially you freshmen who are on a brand new campus. And sophomores-- it must feel great not to be at the bottom of the chain any more. I may be seeing some of you around at the football games, which I will be attending from time to time. If you see me, say hello! Let me know you are one of my students. Don't be a shy little clam. And of course, I hope you are all enjoying your time with Mr. Lang. Please be great students-- I haven't met you all but I undoubtedly believe that each of you have the ability to be a great student. Oh, and remember, good habits start from day one. Start doing your homework from the beginning of the school year! Don't slack. Don't fall behind. Do your work. Pay attention in class. Be respectful. Be Gauchos.
See you in about a month, kiddos!
Here are some photos of Mikaela in her first month.
