We had a day of snowy fun when school was cancelled and we made a snowman in space outside our apartment.
We spent some weekends in Wilmington between checking out the Greek Festival and celebrating the Kentucky Derby with the Mint Julep Jubilee.
We went back to visit the family in Atlanta, and then it was back to work for me, setting up my classroom and meeting a new years' group of kids. I also cut off all my hair! I got to spend the day seeing what it is like to be a marine on Dustin's Jane Wayne day!
I met Nicholas Sparks at a meet and greet at Cherry Point. We traveled back to Atlanta for Thanksgiving, and enjoyed spending time with family.
