Saturday Snapshots

This week was full of joy and full of stress. A mixed bag if you will. I guess that's life, huh? You just can't take one without the other. The yucky stuff makes the wonderful stuff just so much better. While looking back over the pictures I took this past week, JOY and wonderful stuff wins! The other nonsense fades.

We celebrated my baby nephew's 5th birthday last weekend. I guess he's really not a baby anymore, but he's still the youngest nephew, so the title stands. He's a little crazy and I love him like crazy!
I think he had a blast at his birthday party!
On Monday night, we had the Penguin Ball at my school. We all got dressed up and basically had a "dance" for our kindergartners. They were pretty stinkin' cute! I got to eat Oreos and take pictures. Not a bad night!
Wednesday was a hard day. We had a meeting that didn't go very well and some frustration with co-workers that weren't really being team players, so I came home, ate ice cream, and watched a movie. And life goes on.
Thursday night I went to have dinner with my parents and this sweet pea. I'll claim her as my dinner date any night!
My Romania shirts came in on Friday. I'm so grateful for all of the sweet support!
I spent some time today getting all of the shirts ready to be mailed or passed out. Each one has a thank you note attached to it because I'm so very thankful for the finical support and the prayers. The shirts remind me of the friends and family who purchased a shirt and the precious people I get to serve in Romania because of them. It's a pretty cool deal!
I was really glad when last week was over and am excited we get to start all over tomorrow. We have one more week before Spring Break and that right there is just so exciting! So here's to a fantastic week for you and me!

Saturday Snapshots

This week included two days of training and three days with kids. It was weird and busy. The Spring semester brings so many activities and things that must take place above and beyond teaching. It's a crazy time of year. We have two weeks before Spring Break and so much to do!

Last weekend, I went to dinner with some family and friends on Valentine's. It was a beautiful, warm day!
We had a professional development day at school on Monday. While the kids were away, the teachers played. We played Hungry Hungry Hippo in the gym! It was intense! I even got a hole in my shirt.
I was able to go for a walk a couple of times this week. Thursday evening was beautiful. The perfect ending to a good day!
We had our Bear Float Parade and Western Day on Friday. We paraded around the school with our floats and stuffed animals. Then we showed off our western dancing in the gym. It was a fun day!
I hung out with my sister, niece and nephew last night. This one has become quite the little giggler!
I've gone to bed with this verse in my mind every night this week. I'm trying to be better about committing verses to memory.
Tomorrow we celebrate my baby nephew's birthday at his birthday party. I can't believe he's gotten so big. He is such a blessing to us!
Happy Weekend!!
