Hello to all of you out there in blog land...and to whoever is still following/reading this little blog of mine. I sure have been MIA for awhile, but I promise it is for good reason (or at least I think it is) haha.
I've been talking quite awhile about the fiance and I searching for a new home...well we have finally moved into our brand spankin new home!! It is a 3 bed, 2 bath townhouse with a single car garage out in Kapolei, HI. It is quite a drive, but I'm not complaining..I'm living in MY house!! (still sounds weird to say!) It is quite different out here as opposed to living in town...I really am enjoying the quietness out here and the 'small town, slow paced feel'. The lifestyle out here reminds me a little more of where I grew up, back in Maui.
It has been crazy hectic packing and moving during the school year. I haven't really taken any time off (just one day the weekend we moved) because state testing is coming up...and I really don't want to leave my kids to a sub when there is so much to be done. SO..that means in between I need to find time to unpack and clean and stuff like that. I'd like to share a few pictures with you. Please don't mind the poor quality of photos because I'm using my iphone. Couldn't find my camera if my life depended on it. (Half of my house is still in boxes..please don't judge!)

As he was on his way to work (and I on my way home) he calls me and tells me about this dog he fell in love with..and he regrets not adopting her and how he knows its the perfect dog for us. Without seeing her, I trusted his word and went to go and adopt her. Evidently, she had already left PETCO and was on her way back to the Humane Society (which was in the direction I was in, 30 min. ago). He made me turn around...I made it to the Humane Society with literally 1 minute to spare before they closed the doors. I was able to adopt her and take her home.
She is the sweetest cutest little girl and we have both fallen so much in love with her. She loves to be babied, and likes to be carried like a baby..she even sits like one with her bottom on my lap and back against my body.
This picture if of her after her very first bath. Instead of shaking the water out like most normal dogs..she wanted to be picked up and wrapped in a towel. I put her in my lap and dry her off like a child (this is what I was talking about..how she likes to sit).
AND..this little baby does NOT like it when she is left alone. She always finds a way to escape from the baby gates we bought to keep her in the kitchen area. One day we came home...and she had chewed a hole in the brand new carpet. I was VERY MAD at her...so she got put on time out.
She was so sad. I shared this story with my students, and they asked me..did she write that??
I told them "Yes, she did". They were impressed and said "WoW!!! That's pretty good she can write...you should enter her into America's got Talent!". HAHA. I was cracking up inside. It's so adorable how innocent they are. Kiani (our doggie) also got into my school bag and chewed up some of the kiddos' homework. I told them and they thought it was totally awesome. They again asked..."Did she write another note when she was on time out?!" :)
Alright..that's all for today. I'll be posting more pictures of the new home later if anyone is interested in that.and tomorrow I'm thinking of linking up to share more of what we've been doing in the classroom.
