Greek and Roman Day

Greek and Roman Day is my favorite day of the school year!!! I think it is better than field day... better than the day right before Winter Break... better than the last day of school!! We have been studying the geography, history, and culture of the Ancient Greeks and Ancient Romans since September. We capped off our studies by celebrating the contributions that the Greek and Romans made to our culture today. Here we are getting in the mood for the day by dressing up in togas! SO FUN!!!!!

Wedding Wednesday

Well sorry that it has been a few Wednesdays since I last posted. I have been working feverishly on my action research project for that last few weeks. I have it in the near final stages and am just waiting on feedback from my group members. It has been such a freeing feeling. I don't feel that I have to make every moment in the evening count. I feel like I have had time to relax, work out, enjoy time with friends. All of this I have been able to do without my project hanging over my head. It will be nice to have close to two months without a ton of homework to do. Then back to the grind from January until July.

The end of October and the beginning of November were busy months for us for wedding planning.... another reason for not posting in a while. We hired a DJ and photographer for the day. As part of our photography package we had an engagement photoshoot. The shoot was the weekend before last. We took pictures in downtown Zionsville and at Coxhall gardens. I had a lot of fun and I hope that the pictures are good too. I will make sure to put some up when we get them back. We also tested cakes... which was a lot of fun. We are in the final stages of getting that together. Bridesmaid dresses are just about finalized too.

All in all, I am enjoying the wedding planning process more than I thought I would. It has been stressful at times, especially when I already have such a full plate. Luckily many of my girlfriends have already planned their own weddings so they have been a great help too!
