I finished reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling.
In this book, Harry and his friends return for their 6th year at Hogwarts. They are disappointed when they discover that Professor Snape has finally become the professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts. Harry begins to learn more about his connection to Voldemort and what needs to be done in order to kill him.
I really enjoyed this book, as I did most of the other Harry Potter books. This book was interesting because of the information found out about the connection between Voldemort and Harry. There was a lot of suspense (for me) and action. This book was also full of a few surprises.This one was probably in my top three of the Harry Potter series. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the series. I am very excited to start the seventh and final book!
As a future teacher I am head over heels for school supplies.
Tim thinks I'm a total dork because I get so excited to walk into Wal-Mart and spend at least 20 minutes in the school supply section. I love to fill my basket with fresh yellow pencils, notebook paper, markers, and index cards. A lot of schools and students are unable to afford their own school supplies.
This weekend Tim and I took a trip to New Bern with his family.
I was very excited about it. We got to spend a lot of time with his family and his grandparents which was really fun. We went out to the river house and spent some time there playing Bananagrams (my new favorite game).
The river was so beautiful. Give me a good book and I could have stayed there all day.
Not the best picture of us (my hair was crazy)...but I love my new sunglasses. I could no longer wait for the Project You ones. I broke down and bought my own pair.
On Sunday Tim and I spent some time walking around downtown New Bern. I kept my fingers crossed that I would run into Nicholas Sparks, but sadly I didn't. It was still a great trip. :)
Did you know New Bern used to be the capitol of North Carolina?
This is Tryon Palace. It is so big and beautiful. It was the governor's home back in the 1700's.
Also New Bern is celebrating their 300th anniversary all year long. They have bears like this one all over the town.
You can go here to check out all the other bears. They made me laugh.
I loved this house.
I loved the small town historic feel of New Bern and enjoyed spending time with Tim and his family. If you get the opportunity to visit you should.
After taking classes all summer and spending a lot of time just learning about teaching I was slowly starting to have a few doubts about whether or not I still wanted to teach.
I was afraid that I had been determined to be a teacher for so long that I just didn't know what else to do with my life. This week I started my one week internship at a year round elementary school.
All my doubts are gone. I know this is what I want to do and I love spending all day with the students. They are amazing, the teachers are amazing, and the school is amazing. I love everything about it. I am learning so much. I am so grateful my passion and desire has returned. I think I was just getting bored of sitting in college classrooms and listening to lectures all the time. I think the best way for me to learn is from experience and I am loving every minute of it.
I thought I would have a lot of time to blog this week but I probably won't. I will probably have some stories for you once the week is over especially since I am sharing a hotel room with 4 other girls. I hope you are having an amazing week.
