Give Thanks

This Thanksgiving I am beyond thankful for the people in my life. I am thankful for sweet, new friends that were handpicked for me. I am thankful for the new opportunities that God has given me and for the constant companionship He offers. This school year has been a difficult one so far, but I have no doubt that this is where I'm supposed to be. I am thankful that He quiets my anxious soul and strengthens my resolve. With a grateful heart, I give thanks for the good and not so good moments and look forward to what's ahead!

Happy Thanksgiving y'all!!

Saturday Snapshots

I am so glad that it is Thanksgiving break! Seriously, so glad! This past week was pretty interesting and fun. I made cookies to share at our dips and desserts celebration at my school on Wednesday. My house smelled so yummy. I haven't baked anything in a while.
My co-teacher and I went to a training on Wednesday. During our lunch break we ran to Target. We found a Frozen backdrop and of course, we had to take a picture in front of it.
One of my kiddos gave me this flower turkey. It made me smile and was very sweet.
I got to meet my newest niece this morning. She is so sweet and small! Welcome to this crazy, wonderful life Ainsley!
Here are my two youngest nieces. One is 12 weeks old and the other is 3 days old. I hadn't realized how much one had grown without sticking her next to the other. Time flies!
So now I'm enjoying my 9 days off. I have some school stuff to handle and some other stuff to take care of, but I plan to relax and enjoy my family.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

Saturday Snapshots

This week was an interesting one, so I didn't take very many pictures. My family came over for dinner on Thursday night and I didn't take one single picture. Sad day!

On Monday, we still had warm weather, so I went out on the path. I had to race the sun home, but the sunset made it all worth it. Darn time change and crazy cold weather that will keep me inside for a while.
On Wednesday I had to go get a tetanus shot after school. I mean really? One more thing to add to my week. Then I came home and cleaned my house for dinner the next night, which kept my arm (where I got my shot) from hurting too much. It's still a little tender. Luckily, I'm good for another 10 years.
It rained some this week and was crazy cold, so the water on the playground couldn't really dry up.  We had indoor recess a couple of times and I think we'll be doing the same thing this week. 
I hung out with my sister, niece and nephew on Friday. We had dinner, got frozen yogurt and watched Planes Fire and Rescue.
Today we all went to see Big Hero 6 with my mom. It was really good. Then we had lunch and ran some errands.
Now I have lots to take care of this week before I get to have 9 entire days off for Thanksgiving!
Happy Weekend!
