Off & Running

The 2011-12 school year is off to a great start.

I'm happy to report that my nearly 150 students have started the year well, and their teacher is fired up and ready to go. Likewise, I've started yet another chapter as a coach, having resigned from 8th Grade Football I am joining Coach Mike Sheil and the Indianola Boys Golf Team. We have played five meets and the challenges are numerous, but upside can be seen. It's been fun to work with the team and I've been thoroughly impressed with their willingness to listen and their knowledge of the game's etiquette. Now it's just a matter of honing their on course skills.

With that, I must also add, that the Jorth Family is gearing up for it's first educational experience - Lilly is heading to Preschool Tuesday. Amanda is currently attending open house at Seeds of Faith Preschool at Faith Lutheran Church in Clive. As I'm sure you can image, Lil is "pumped." She's got all she needs to be successful - from her embroidered backpack, to pile of school supplies, to first day of school "dress." Hard to believe that our little lady is headed off to school already, they don't lie when they say "they grow up fast."

So to all of you in cyber-space, happy "back to school!" Good luck with yet another school year and may this one be the best one yet!
