I can't believe summer has come and gone so quickly! I only have about 2 1/2 weeks left before school starts again! Although I am not ready for it to start, I am excited (and nervous) that I will be student teaching 3rd grade all day M-F. And, I am also excited that I will be graduating in December! Wow! I can't believe it has already been 4 years!
Anyway, I haven't posted much lately so I thought I would follow my friend Brandi's lead and post a little about what has been going on these past few months, Enjoy!
Got out of school the first week of May and my summer began :)
I watched one of my cohort friends get married to the love of her life!
Turned 28 at the end of May. Still can't believe it.
Joey & I joined a gym and really started working out. I have already gone down one size! We definitely need to work harder at it though.
We also started Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University which I highly recommend!
I went to a seminar on teaching literacy with my cohort coordinator and a couple of girls from my cohort and watched uncomfortably as an argument grew in intensity between one of the teachers and the man giving the seminar. It was crazy!
Went to the hospital to see/hold one of my good friend's precious new baby boy!
Babysat a couple of times.
Went to lunch or dinner, and several movies with my best friends on multiple occasions :)
Went shopping with my mom & my sister which is always fun!!
Took Miss L out for fun around Austin.
Had SO much fun with my nieces, Miss L & Miss J, when Miss J came to visit. She moved to Maryland last Oct. and we hadn't seen her since!!
Burned my arm on a hot casserole dish right when it came out of the oven :(
Helped out w/ a garage sale at my mom's house in the heat & humidity.
Survived 40-something days of 100+ degree days.
Cried when our pastors lost their son. Mourned with them at the memorial, viewing, and funeral.
Spent time with my family and time with Joey's family. Felt good to love on everyone!
Sat around playing Pictionary Man with my family---a total riot! You NEED to play this game!
Joey & I helped out at my mom's house ripping up carpet & padding, and installing hardwood. So.Much.Fun.Let.Me.Tell.You. ......... HA!
Created a baking/cooking blog!
Shared some special moments with friends & family---cried together, laughed together, prayed together.
Read...lots of books :)
Relaxed...as much as possible.
Here are just a few pics from my awesome summer that I wish was not coming to an end...
