I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Another Weekend Has Come and Gone...

Head colds sure hit hard...and somehow they always hit on the weekend.

It figures.

But at least it made me take time to relax - heck, I couldn't even think straight. So, I spent my Saturday watching college football and a movie (not that ND was anything special in their game).

Not bad.

And today, therefore, was one spent lesson planning (after a run and coffee with my sister, of course). I love the challenge of it, but I often struggle with coming up with that one big take-away (when there are SO many standards) and then coming up with a set of activities that are both diverse in learning styles and short enough for my students' attention spans.

We'll see how this week goes. (I'm taking the 8th grade to Adoration on Friday, so please say some extra prayers that they are open to meeting Jesus in the Eucharist in a new way.)

Only one volleyball game this week - woo hoo! I'm sure my time with them will be the highlight of my Monday.

Have a great week everyone! Full speed ahead.
