After randomly "Bueller, Bueller" in the voice of that "dry eyes" guy for an entire school year, I found out most of my students didn't know the reference. A few people have been saying "Jaclyn, Jaclyn" every time they've opened my blog page to find that yet again I have not updated. The reality is that my day to day life has been been pretty simple lately. It entails the following--
I set a goal to run, walk, or hike at least ten miles a week. I've discovered the key to my sanity is time outside moving in some way. My school days that include this are infinitely less stressful. 
 I have been counting down to Jenessa getting home since before she left for Israel. Her arrival home kicks off a month of chaos - the annual J2 walk-a-thon, Jewels, Ryan, my grandparents visiting, Jenessa's mission farewell, Katie Finegan's bridal shower, etc. It's going to be a great month - at the end of which I will probably collapse from exhaustion - so worth it though since this will be our send-off month before Jenessa leaves on her mission. 
 And of course, most of my free time lately has been spent with this cute guy. From exploring the Napa Valley last weekend (where he, not me, said we should take random pictures together. If you look closely, you can see the camera remote in his hand.) to doing our classic dinner and a movie, we are having all sorts of fun. 

So there you have it - my simple, albeit wonderful, life so far this spring. Can't wait to see what else it holds.
