It's been a while since my last blog, and a lot has been happening!

I completed my first practicum teaching experience at Nibley Park Elementary in Salt Lake.  In my Elementary Ed program we have an entire month each semester in which we do not have any classes, but are assigned a classroom in a school that we go to everyday.  It was such a great experience and I am so sad to be gone and having to go to regular classes again!  I got to do so many things and I learned so much about teaching.  My class was in the 2nd grade, and it really is a great grade to teach!

Here is a picture of all of us girls at Nibley Park Elementary!

During my practicum, I was living at home in Centerville to save a bunch of time on my commute, and so I got to spend a lot of time with these little cuties:

Then on Thanksgiving break my parents and I flew down to Mississippi to visit my brother, Travis, and sister-in-law, Nichole.  It was such a fun visit!  We went shopping a little on Black Friday, went out to dinner, saw movies, played scrabble, and most importantly I got to play with my niece and nephew, Maycie and Ross!

 Dad with the Turkey...mmmmm

 Travis with his mashed potatoes!

 Here is what I made:  green bean casserole!  Doesn't it look delicious?

 A little shopping never hurt anyone!
