Well, I have finally made the big move from California to Arizona! I moved out of my parents' house (FINALLY!) and into my very own apartment in a whole new state!! It's kinda weird being here all by myself, especially without teaching to keep me occupied. The first teacher work day is August 15th, so I've got a month and a half to get myself acclimated and get my home and classroom set up before then. It's very exciting, but boy is it HOT in this state!! The day I moved into my upstairs apartment it was 112 degrees! It was miserable trying to carry all of my furniture up the stairs in that kind of weather. Now that it's time to get everything put away in their proper spot. Very exciting!!!
