Hot Legs, Wearing Me Out

No, I'm not paying myself a compliment here. Literally, my legs got hot. It wasn't the weather--once it got dark (and rainy) out, it was the perfect tights weather. However, running around at work all day got a little steamy. The cheap (yet cute!) cardigan, that probably doesn't have a single natural fiber in it, didn't help much either. Live and learn. 

The date night Friday was pretty much the highlight of my weekend. The rest consisted of working, grocery shopping, and laundry. I guess I did get caught up on Project Runway (even though I already knew who got sent home due to the unfortunate timing of my twitter status check). 

I do have a question for you though, albeit it's a random one. Last year, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to student teach French in an elementary school. Initially, I panicked--I've never taught elementary school kids before! But quickly, I fell in loved with their enthusiasm and energy, and didn't want my time at the elementary school to end. (Yes, I promise there is a question coming.) Unfortunately, the number of schools that teach French at the elementary level here is small and dwindling. Here's what I want to know: Where you live, do any of the elementary schools offer French? I know many of you may not know, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. For a great job, Aaron and I would consider making a big move. Thank you for your help!

  3. Beautiful dress!! My school (5 and 6) has French, but it's one teacher for the whole school and they take it for a marking period only.

  4. I'm of no assistance in regard to the French classes info, but I do need to say that dress is gorgeous!!!

  5. My friend Michelle just started a job at a french immersion school in St. louis. There is also one in Tulsa.

  6. First, I adore that blue dress, perfect! Love the way you styled it! I'm not sure about the French classes, we are too new to this area and since I have a toddler I'm out of the school loop for now. I remember when I was in elementary school I got some French instruction (that was long ago). With all the French I've taken over the years you would think I would be better at it. My apologies to the poor people of France who had to deal with my attempts to speak it when I went there - LOL! Good luck finding something, I'll keep my ears open!

  7. You could move to Canada! Most schools here French as an option as well as full or late immersion.


I really appreciate hearing from you!
