Con"grad"ulations Mom!!!

Angele's mom, Pauline, just graduated with her associate's degree in Early Childhood Development from Grossmont College. She has worked really hard and deserves much recognition. She has already got a job offer as a teacher's aid for the 3 and 4-year-old class with the preschool where she did her student teaching. We are very proud of her! CONGRATULATIONS MOM!!!

We Have Our Own Place!!!

I (Angele) recently started managing Orchard Villa Townhomes. Substitute teaching has been really fun and I have learned a lot from all the teachers that I worked with; however, because of the unsteadiness in income and for the chance to finally get our own place, we decided to take this opportunity. We love it! I have actually been able to use a lot of the skills I learned as a teacher while managing: helping people get along, kindly telling tenants to do or not to do things, keeping things picked up and clean, patiently listening to complaints and exuses, and making sure everything runs smoothly. Some days are really hectic, but I'm getting the hang of it. The best part is that I can stay at home with Bryson! It is fun to be able to do things with him in the morning. The hard part is trying to get things done in the afternoon when he decides not to take a good nap. All in all, I think this is going to work out.

Oh, What the Heck. Take the Box!

So our friends and family are getting really frustrated with us because we don't post very often. For this reason, I am learning to do this. Maybe I'll be able to put a few things on while I'm suppose to be working.

If you were wondering what Bryson's favorite thing to do is, it is eating. The first thing he asks for when he wakes up is food. Then immediately after he has eaten breakfast, he wants a snack to eat while he watches Word World ("Wo Wo") and Super Why ("Why Why"). He decided to stop waiting for Mom and Dad (and Grandma Pauline) to get him snacks and did it himself. Fortunately in our new apartment the snacks are not so accessible.
