Spring/Winter/Summer Break

Well, it was a pretty crazy week in Ms. Bennett’s life. Scott and I flew to Colorado for spring break, where it blizzarded and snowed a foot in Denver. Then, we came back to San Jose to 94 degrees and a broken air conditioner.

Oh, and no air conditioning in the classroom, either. But what else is new? (A side note: isn’t it cruel and unusual punishment to subject teachers and students to each other when it’s that hot? Seriously. At least put in a window AC unit or a swamp cooler or something to combat 22 sweaty bodies in a classroom.)

The best part about my spring break? Choosing a wedding venue and date! On July 9, 2010, Scott and I will get married at Stonebrook Manor in Thornton, CO. It’s got beautiful lush gardens for the ceremony and an elegant ballroom for the reception. Excited? You could say that- there are 445 days left until the wedding!

Oh, yeah, and teaching is great, too. But a whole week that was just about me was pretty amazing. Sometimes, it’s nice to be called by your first name.

  1. Awww, congrats! Boy, you guys are planners. We set our date only 2.5 months ahead of time. I’m not sure I could deal with having a wedding on the horizon for much longer than that. I hate putting so much time and thought and energy into ONE day of my life, you know? I think three months of planning for a six hour even should be sufficient. Whew. Anyway, congrats again, looking forward to hearing more. :-)
