We went to pick Samson up on Friday night. It took us 3 hours to get there and 3 hours to get back. He is adjusting to our house well and we have had fun getting to know his personality. He is a very sweet boy with lots of bursts of energy. Will enjoys throwing him backwards and watching him run back to ask for more...I enjoy cuddling with him early in the morning. He has proven to be a good eater and likes all of his new toys!

So Will found out today we have a blog, even though I told him I was creating one for us weeks ago. It's funny how sometimes you think people are listening even when they are not...so I just finished up sharing the blog with Will. He was critiquing my use of grammar on the blog and I guess he learned that even teachers don't know everything. We had a busy weekend buying more stuff for the house, including a coffee table Will picked out for us at Pottery Barn. Today we ventured out to Petsmart to buy a crate for Samson and some other puppy items like toys and a leash. My favorite thing we got was a collar for Samson that says, "Bad to the Bone" and it has pictures of bones on it. Will picked that out too. Will and I are debating going to get Samson on Monday when we get back from Dallas - but we are still thinking about it...this weekend we are headed to Dallas to visit Nick for Memorial Day festivities.

It's hard to believe that my second year of teaching is winding down. I was sitting in a curriculum writing meeting today and I starting thinking of how my life has changed so much in the last few years. This summer I will be spending time tutoring a few students, taking workshops and working on writing Rockwood's new third grade science curriculum with some other teachers in the district. I also look forward to visiting Julie's new house in Lexington in June. She has a bunch of fun things planned for Mandy and I to do with her while we are there for a few days. Then I will be hosting our first family event at our new house over the Fourth of July weekend. Mandy, Ryan, Logan, Julie, Cliff and my mom and dad will come to our house for fireworks this year (don't worry they are legal in Jeffco). And not but two days later Will and I are leaving for our honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico (as long as the Swine Flu does not stop us). I am sure I will find myself at the pool a few days in between all of this too. Our neighborhood pool is supposed to be finished by Memorial Day weekend, but I am not getting my hopes up. There are TONS of great things about being a teacher...but summer is close to the top of the list.

Well, Will and I moved a week ago this past Saturday. It was a beautiful day for moving stuff from the apartment to the new house. We love everything so far, but still have lots to do. We are excited for all the work we still need to put into the house. I will try and get some pictures posted up soon. We also have other big news in the Hubbard house. On May 30th we will have a new addition to our family. Samson Hubbard will be coming home that weekend. We are getting a Westie pup and here is a picture of him. He is about 5 weeks here and we get to take him home at 9 1/2 weeks. I will have a busy summer training Samson.
