I've Got Sunshine....

Ahh....Wednesday....I love you.

This will be short and sweet but let me just tell you what can make a bad day better. When I am tired because I have been with 15 first graders.....When I am tired because I have not gotten near enough sleep....When things are tough because I have had to tell the same first grader the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over (not exaggerating) again....

The things that can make it all better are.......

When they finally get what I have been trying to teach them....When they run up to me in the morning dying to give me a hug....When they all try to grab my hand on the way to lunch or P.E. and at the end of the day when I look down as we are sitting at carpool and I hear the cutest, little boy who happens to be missing his two front teeth belting out....."I've got sunshine on a cloudy day! When it's cold outside, I got the month of May!"'s the best.

two. days. till. the. weekend.

So even if you are an Auburn fan you will think this child is precious.....

Look how adorable....
I love this girl and can't wait to see her in 2 weeks! :)

A short update one me: This week was tough. I mean....tough. I think I cried at some point every single day. I can't really explain it but all I can say is, the Lord is good and encouraging. I am thankful for all that I am learning through student teaching and the good times and bad times..... Yesterday morning I received three baskets full of "teacher stuff" for my classroom. Back in the spring I received a scholarship from Alpha Delta Kappa. As if the scholarship wasn't enough of a blessing, they brought me baskets of fun things! I got crayons, markers, staplers, books, hand sanitizer, tape, sharpies, dry erase markers, enough paper to last me a while, and a million other little things. I could not be more grateful and while to most people this doesn't sound so special...for a was like Christmas morning. It was just what I needed after a not-so-fun week.

I hope your weekend was more exciting than mine. I am thankful for rest though.

P.S. South Alabama beat their first D1 team.....Just saying. Bleed It Red!

Oh and Roll Tide!! (sorry Duke....)

Fall? Is that you?

Well, it certainly felt a bit like fall this weekend. I'm not sure if it was the football or the fact that there was little humidity in the air making it feel a little cooler but either way I liked it. It was actually a pretty relaxing weekend. I did have to do lesson plans and it took me a few minutes to get back in the mode of doing those loooooooong lesson plans that we are required to do. Other than that, it was a fun weekend. Brett's parents came into town. We rested and watched football. All. Weekend. I mean....I understand watching your team play but is it really necessary to watch most of every single game that is on? In Brett's mind it is. Oh well. We did head out to see the best team ever remain undefeated. that Auburn and Alabama. Jk. I'm an Alabama fan but I go to South and must represent. It was a beautiful day for football!
Love him.
We got to hang out with this lovely engaged couple. Ballin. OH, and South dominated. It was a nail-biter at a final score of 56-0. Hey, we may not have met our competition yet but we are still undefeated. Studly.

I love this time of year. No, I'm not a huge fan of the fact that weekends mean non-stop football....but I still like it. Student teaching is going well. I will say, it has been a rough couple of weeks for me. I have felt like I am in such a weird place. I am basically working a full-time job but not getting paid so I'm not really in college. haha. I'm tired....a lot. However, I see the Lord continue to reveal how faithful He is. Oh, and how much I suck sometimes. He is so good. He has given me such a love for teaching and continues to bless me in ways I can't even explain. Life is weird but so good. I pray that I would be a woman who seeks His face first daily and one who truly radiates His love and grace. Sorry for the random blabs.

P.S. How awesome are 4 day work weeks? Yeah. Fab.
Have a good one!

Growing Up

This will be short and sweet. Hopefully I will have more exciting posts this weekend but I thought I'd check in. Student teaching is in full swing. I wake up at 5:15, spend 7-9 hours at my school, come home, maybe run, eat dinner, and am ready for bed by 8:30 at the latest. I seriously love it but boy oh boy....I miss my college class schedule. Oh, and I miss living on campus. I truly love South Alabama. Never thought I would say it but I do.

I have felt like I am in a very "in-between" place lately. It's not the most fun but I know the Lord has something great to teach me and show me. Unfortunately, I fail and do not trust Him as often as I should. Silly me.

Well, it is 7:50.....I'm thinking of bed. Old lady anyone? :)

P.S. Yes for a 3 day weekend! Maybe you'll even get a post with a picture. Wouldn't that be something? :)
