High life...

Things have been going pretty well in the Sylva household lately. I certainly don't think I can explain how lucky I feel or how well life is going right now. Beginning of a new school year, starting grad school and Chip starting a new job, WOW, things have been hectic.

My class has been a wonderful gift so far this year. I have been enjoying the past five school days with them. They are so giving towards one another, understanding, helpful and it's truly fantastic to watch. When young people have such a genuine sense of community at such a young age, it makes one want to share their story over and over. I have been lucky enough to have one other class like this one in my short, four year career and I consider myself truly lucky. Stay tuned for more on Room L!

I have now attended two classes at Saint Mary's University for my M.A. in Educational Leadership. I'm very excited to have this process finally started. There are many things to look forward to in life, and I look forward to the day when I have my M.A. under my belt and be able to better myself in my career. I'm not positive of what that looks like exactly, but there are many things that I can do with a M.A. I could move into administration, better my teaching or countless other avenues. :)

And last, but most definitely not least, Chip has begun his new job!! I am so very, very proud of him for his move in jobs. He came home today and was eager to share about his wonderful first day of work. I am so ecstatic that it went so well. He said that he really sees himself enjoying this new job and it makes me so happy for him. I hope things continue to go well and he continues to enjoy his job!

All in all, so happy right now!
