So, where have you been all this time?

I just finished student teaching this past Friday, and I'm starting to get things together to begin subbing.  It's so bitter-sweet to be done.  In some ways, I feel as though I have just climbed a mountain, and on the other hand, I know that I will really miss my students. 
I have had a really different student teaching experience than the average student.  First of all, I'm not an undergrad, so that gave me a boost in the right direction from life experience.  The second thing that made my student teaching experience different from most was that I'm pregnant.  That's right!  Jason and I are having our first baby.  That's kind of why I have been so absent from blogging.
I know there are plenty of expecting/mom bloggers who can keep up with their blog, even with being so exhausted all the time (like the lovely Meg!  I don't know how she does it.)  During my first trimester, I would work all day, and go to bed as soon as I finished dinner at 5:30 or 6.  As of this week, I am 19 weeks pregnant, so I'm thrilled to be out of that position and to have more energy!

So that's the update!  Jason and I get to find out on Friday what the gender of the baby is.  We're so excited!
