So I guess I will start to blog again. HA. Things have been a little busy for me this past year. Besides being pregnant, school got really busy with competitions and new responsibilities. We have now added an AP course to our department, which I will begin teaching next year. This year we did a pilot program and had two girls take the AP exam and I am anxiously awaiting their scores. I started this year as the new regional director for our ( UIL type ) competition, which went really well. With all the large schools in our region participating, we had close to 500 students enter and the event had little to no hiccups. We had 6 students advance to state and 3 received superior ratings at the State competition in April. Needless to say, I love my job and am so proud of my students and all they have accomplished this year. By the time May rolled around I finally got to focus on my pregnancy and the upcoming arrival of Leigh Elizabeth Summers. The labor was hard, seeing as how I didn't get an epidural until WAY late in the laboring process, but Leigh made it here in one piece with all ten fingers and toes. She has been an awesome baby and has done fairly well adjusting. Anna is SO proud to be a big sister. She loves helping and has done really well with the transition our little family has gone through having a new baby.
We decided to keep Anna in school during June so that I could adjust and get Leigh's sleeping schedule under control before we were all home all day. That has been such a blessing. I get to spend all my time with Leigh during the day. The days that Stephen is off, we get to just lavish ourselves with her and man has that been nice. When Anna was an infant, I was always looking for the next milestone and with Miss Leigh, I am taking it all in each day. I really want to enjoy her while I can, because man life is getting fast. It seems the more things you add to your plate,the faster it all flies by. Here are some pictures of our newest arrival and a few from the things we have already been doing this summer. Hope all is well with those who check on this blog periodically. I should be updating more often now that I have more time with the summer. Until then...
