We have officially made it halfway through Spring semester and I am thrilled because this means a few things:
1. 6 more weeks of student teaching and I will be a college graduate. Holla!
2. Cam has Spring Break this week, and he deserves it.
3. Summer is that much closer and summer means sunshine, warmth, and vacations, which is where I thrive.
I've just finished up 7 weeks in a 6th grade middle school class teaching Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies twice a day. I was honestly afraid that they would be mean and snotty and that I would be miserable. They proved me wrong. I LOVE those sweet little sixth graders [even if a handful of them are as tall as I am] and I miss them already. They work hard and most of them still think that school is important and awesome, which is something I love about kids. They are willing to meet your expectations if you believe in them...
Third grade has been interesting so far. I've only been there for a week so we'll see. Its definitely a very different atmosphere from the middle school but it should be good! Wish me luck. We have a substitute on Monday so we'll see how the kids and I do...
Cam took me out to dinner last night for date night and we're going to a movie tonight. That boy spoils me; I only hope I'm as good to him as he is to me.
[Shout out to my Mom and Dad for the gift card.. Thank you!!!]
We're not that exciting right now, seeing as I teach and Cam works and goes to school, then we eat, sleep, and repeat every day. But its a good life and I'm so lucky to have such a hard-working, handsome husband who does everything he can to make sure we're doing well.
And even though we may not be very exciting, I love those moments when we are snuggled up on the couch watching the latest episode of Bones, Duck Dynasty, or Modern Family and he pulls me a little closer and kisses the top of my head. It is simply one more reminder of how blessed I am. I am blessed to live in a trailer park for inexpensive rent and enough space for us both; I am blessed to have a man who supports me in everything I do and is eternally patient when I forget to make dinner or there is laundry everywhere; I am blessed to be sealed to him for time and all eternity.

Love the photobomber in the back. I'd never noticed him before.

I am blessed.
and I wouldn't have it any other way.
