After discontinuing the blogging.. there was a gaping hole in my life. A hole that could have easily been filled with school work, yet, here I am. :) In recent Johnson news..
We are officially retired from basketball..Yay! As much as we know we're going to miss it, we're still enjoying the freedom. Jeremiah gets to play in a 3-on-3 tournament this Saturday with his new bestie who lives in the next town over. He's definitely pumped for that.. and yes, he will be sporting his NWAACC Championship ring while he's not playing. He only wears it on special occasions, and this is definitely one of those occasions.
Jeremiah got an internship with the New Hampshire FisherCats! The FisherCats is the minor league baseball team based out of Manchester, about 45 minutes from good ol' Henniker. He'll be able to sit in on all of the big-wig meetings and do all the fancy business stuff that goes with running a successful sports team. The most exciting part for me? The potential free tickets to the games. :) Can't say I'm disappointed in that! He's got one more year left of school because of the double-major, and a very high percentage of those who receive the internships he has now get placed in a job with the team right after graduating college. He's in a good spot, and we're so grateful for all the friends who helped him get this amazing opportunity!
As for me, I'm still working at White Birch and yes, I still love it. I have my own class in the afternoons with the kindergarten kids, and I work the before and after school programs with the 5-13 year olds. I must say, as much as I love what I'm doing right now, I can't wait for summertime! Field trips 3 days a week, swimming 1 day a week, games everyday. Not only is it fun, but it's rewarding to see the kids interacting with one another and do make new relationships with them, and to also build on the ones we already have. I still have about a year and a half left in school -- that's what I get for college-hopping. Majoring in Elementary and Special Education seems to be the best decision I've made so far.. Well... it's in the top three (I bet you can guess the other two!).
In other news, our baby boy is doing just fine! Aside from him being in the bratty puppy stage, Boone is turning into a fine young lad. Jeremiah finally broke down his big rule of Boone not being allowed on the couch, but look at that face.. is this a face you could say no to? Of course not! He's getting huge though. At 5 months he's almost half of his full grown size. Huge mama's boy though.. but I'm not complaining. :)... and yes, that's our new truck he's driving!
