I had been begging to go to the beach and on Sunday we finally had a beautiful day to go. Andy took me down and I had a lot of fun finding bones and driftwood along the beach. It was so clear we would see the islands out in the sea. I found a lot of really cool walrus vertebrae and some seal bones. Andy also gave me a lesson on how to drive the four wheeler which turned into a lesson about watching the tide. We switched spots so he could drive since the tide had crept up on us since we had been there. After we got back I took Piper for a walk and Meghan told me to look out by the airport to see a bald eagle! I didn't get close this time since Piper was with me and I knew it would take off.
Meghan's long term sub, Helen, arrived on Monday. She is going to be staying in my guest room while she is in Twin Hills. She's a retired teacher from Michigan and very nice. Helen is watching Piper while I go to Anchorage for a conference. I was supposed to go to Anchorage tomorrow after school but Robin called and said she wanted me in Dillingham today. They changed my flights and I ran home, packed quickly, and then waited and waited to be picked up. The plane was full when they got to me so I sat right up front with the pilot. It was a gorgeous day to fly and we had a smooth ride to Dillingham. I was happy to see LeEsia, Sue, and Robin. We went out and I had an amazing dinner which was a salad and chicken sandwich with a soda. Now my belly is full and I'm in the bunk house waiting for our morning flight to Anchorage tomorrow for the Special Educators Conference. Meghan, Andy, and the dogs are all leaving Twin Hills this weekend for maternity leave. While Meghan is gone I am lead teacher! Who would have thought I'd be in charge my first year teaching?! It's going to be an interesting 7 weeks that's for sure! Piper and I are going to miss our friends but we are praying for a safe and easy delivery and a healthy baby! I also can't wait for them to come back so I can get my baby fix! :)
Tuesday was our 100th day of school! Only 80 more to go!
