New Year and some Big Changes

Happy New Year!
Life has changed quite a bit for me in the last few months.
Both of the kiddos are in school and I suddenly have time to work again.
I started working this fall part time and have really enjoyed it.  
It's perfect for my schedule.  I am able to pick up my boys and work while they are in school.  The girls I work with are great and its some extra money.  But I also started looking into a teaching position that I would have never thought of doing just months ago.
A friend of mine surprised me when she mentioned she was an adjunct professor at a local community college.  This peaked my interest and I decided I would apply to 2 of the local community colleges.  BOTH called me back and I was shocked!  
I interviewed with both and they each hired me.  
Nerves, excitement, more nerves!!
This was back in late September.  Things didn't work out with on of the schools so I am teaching Introduction to Oral Communication this semester. 
 Yes the dreaded speech class.
I have 3 classes this semester and started just a few weeks ago.
I love it.  
The students are great, classes are small and I really love it.
Hoping for a good year. Its going to be very, very busy but that's a good thing.

These boys have quite the busy life. 
4 nights a week of soccer practice between the two of them.
But I much prefer them running around outside than bored at home.
We headed over to the park for some playtime before little one's practice, they ended up starting a football game with a couple other kids.
Gotta love the camera+ app and instagram pics!

By the way, the little one is fast...very fast!
He always outruns his big brother.

Football football

Football is back and my UCF Knights had a big, huge game today vs. Ohio State.   I received an email from the young alumni association (which apparently I am no longer a part of because I graduated over a decade ago from UCF...whatever) to a watch party downtown.
I asked my sweet friend Molly (also a UCF alum) to join me and we had a great time. We got tons of freebies, had lunch and lots of pink drinks.  Too bad the Knights didn't win, but oh well it was a fun day.

Summer stuff

Still trying to catch up my blog. I've taken a break from it for quite a few months and miss it!
Summer's been over around here for two weeks now.  Both boys are in school, soccer practice is four nights a week.  I am the PTA president and have started working again.  We are moving fast, sometimes too fast but I like it this way.  Summer is not my favorite time of the year, I prefer the fall any day. 
And it's finally here.
But back to summer, we spent most of our time in a pool.  Whether it was our own pool, my sister's community pool or at a resort...we were usually near water.

Our family from Colorado came out to see us this time and we headed to the beach. 
These cousins adore each other. 
 Especially the oldest and the youngest. 
My oldest tried surfing and decided it wasn't for him, surprise surprise! 
But boogie boarding is just right.

This baby turned 7, SEVEN! 
Unbelievable that he is halfway to fourteen.  Sweet baby.
Spongebob birthday party at the local trampoline/dodgeball warehouse.

And these cousins spent some time lounging in the pool on the weekends.
Hard to believe these three are no longer preschoolers. 

 Bye summer 2012.
Working on a few quilting projects for friends.  A little girl's princess quilt and once that is finished some superhero quilts for the boys.

All done

This boy is all done with pre-school and headed to kindergarten in just a few days.

Nothing but trouble, they get away with everything!

This little pack is splitting up, I'll miss picking them up in carpool and meeting for playdates and lunch in the middle of the day.
