Teaching and other things

I am excited to report that I am in fact feeling a lot better. Now that my senses are no longer compromised I noticed a few things, one being the plethora of errors in my last post. For all those natural editors out there I apologize. I stopped combing over posts some where along the way. I believe it was a few summers ago in the middle of Spain in a tiny internet cafe that barely keep a connection, so writing quickly was of the essence and all grammatical and spelling errors would need to be forgiven. Today, these words find you from the very comfortable and steady internet savvy and stable Tampa, Florida.

A full day of students have restored my love for teaching. Sometimes the minutia of administrative responsibilities becomes so overwhelming that I forget how much I love my job. The actual job that I have been hired to do: teach high school students about religion and philosophy. Watching their eyes follow me as I pace in front of the room and preach the wisdom of Plato or have their eyes light up when they connect Hindu ancient ideas with modern film or force them to open their eyes to the implicit Christian doctrine reflected in our popular American culture. I truly feel rejuvenated. Restored. Resurrected.

Eva Claire Rohrs has joined the world and her big brother Eli is doing a great job of helping his mommy! In anticipation of her arrival I was inspired by my friend Vanessa Fernandez Greene. On her blog she has been posting tons of cute onezies that she has been appliqueing. I wanted to make a couple to welcome Eva. I made 3 and here are just the top halves of two. I am just staring out but it's really fun!

The wedding is coming up! Just over 30 days to go. Almost all the details are set and we surely are ready. The day will be great. The party will be a blast, but honestly I am really looking forward to our marriage more than just the wedding. Honeymoon here we come!
