Repeating 7th Grade

The internship has officially started, which explains the long period of time with no posts. :0/
I'm back in the classroom!
It's a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by students again. I did not realize how much I missed be arounds them and teaching them to appreciate new things!

One of the things I've learned so far is that I do not want to be a teacher who gets stuck in her own ideas or her own way of doing things. I've started a new habit every morning. On my way to school, I turn off the radio and spend time in prayer. It seems so simple that I don't know why I hadn't done it before! In spending this time talking to God each morning, I'm preparing myself for a long, sometimes stressful, day of teaching and interacting with students.

As the new school year begins, let's spend more time in prayer for our students. They deal with more than we can understand. As the next generation of doctors, politicians, moms and dads, these kids deserve our prayer!

A Brand New Adventure

Well, I have been absent from blogland for almost a month. I'll have lots of pictures to post of my trip to Orlando, but first...

The hubs GOT A NEW JOB!!!

I've been keeping this new opportunity to myself for awhile, and it has been absolutely killing me. He has worked for the same company for eight years. Now, however, he is pursuing his call to ministry. In order to do that well, he needs a job with a little more freedom. Three weeks from today, the hubs will be officially starting his new job. I am very proud of him!

So, in honor/celebration of my husband and his hard work and dedication, here's one of my favorite's surprisingly appropriate for the situation!

#40 by Dave Matthews Band

Tables turned again
And you my friend
You and I face each other
Oh time and time out
I know it's sometimes hard
But knowing just oh
That we will get along
Til we're old and gray
And doubled up
We're doubled up, we'll sit
And think of times were hard
And laugh of times when we thought
All it would end, it was all over
Then again
And know that I'm yours less rain
And to leave you out, I'll die
Oh my friend
It will be you until the end with me
