Ch, ch, ch, ch, changes.....

So...I've decided to start blogging, mainly because Melanie is blogging and I want to be just like her :)

Seriously though, a lot of exciting things seem to be happening right now and since all of my friends are spread throughout the country I thought I would give this a try to keep in touch....now I just need them all to get a blog (fingers crossed).

Last week was spring break...it went by so quickly! This is what happened during my break:

We BOUGHT a HOUSE in Broken Arrow, OK (a suburb of Tulsa)!After what seemed like I was signing my life away.....we waited to here if we got the house (there was another offer in on the house as well...so we were nervous)! Later that afternoon we got the wonderful call from our realtor that we GOT IT!!! We are so excited and are already planning projects to be done when we get moved in!

I am in the process of looking for a teaching job in Broken Arrow, Jenks, Union, or Bixby school district. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for kindergarten or pre-k. I hate searching for a job...so keep me in your prayers!


I also got to see my beautiful niece Emerson...I was fortunate enough to photograph her while I was there and here are a few of my favorites:


Today is my last day of spring break and quite honestly I could use a few more!! However, I am excited to see my kids again...I'm sure they will look so much bigger to me...the more I think of my kids leaving and going to Kindergarten the sadder I get! This is my first class EVER, they are adorable, hilarious, and at some points extremely frustrating. But looking back over how far they have come and how much they have learned I can't help but feel proud of them! It is such a rewarding feeling when 'that' child finally gets it!! But I believe these children have taught me much more than I have taught them...they are incredible children and I feel so blessed to spend 35 hours a week with them! 26 weeks down 10 more to go!

I love your house! I want to come stay when it is all fixed up :) Oh and that last picture of your niece is hilarious. She is so sassy propped up on that fist and that face. haha. She is so cute! P.S. I got that third grade job! YAY! Good luck on job hunting. And I'm attaching your blog to mine. And tell me how you got that cool background. I don't know how to figure that stuff out.
