Glowing and Growing

In education, when providing feedback we often use Glows and Grows.  Glows are things that are good and Grows are things you want to improve on.  Well, I am going to give a couple Glows and a Grow about this past week.


Razorback Football is finally here!   I love the whole atmosphere of the football games.  We took a family picture, which I think turned out pretty good.  Then, we headed to the stadium and got there in plenty of time to enjoy all the pre-game festivities including our mascot, Tusk, arriving, the band forming the "A" on the field, and the players running through the "A" before kick-off.  There were tons of people there (The Razorbacks truly are our pro team!) and we won 51-7!  Can't wait until the next game!

A couple of weeks ago I entered a giveaway on The Glamorous Life of a Housewife.  And I actually won!  I won this beautiful set of measuring cups from Anthropologie.  They are too pretty to use, but I love them so.  Right now they are just sitting on my counter so I can admire them whenever I am in the kitchen.  Thanks Whitney!

I am currently taking a class on Educational Research.  This class is killing me.  I feel like I am studying a foreign language.  I don't know the terminology or have the smallest clue about what most of it means. The sad thing is, I have taken basically the same class before.  Granted, it was nine years ago, but still, it is seriously like I have never heard any of this stuff before.  Research is definitely not like riding a bike.  You don't just get back on and remember how to do it or read it.  I know I will understand this stuff; I just hope it's sooner rather than later!

  1. I had the same problem with my Econ class last year. I'm hoping I remember enough from my 3 undergrad accounting classes to make this one go by easily! ha!
