surprise birthday!

Today was a student's birthday.  6 is such a special age!  I love when a student has his birthday during the school week.  I like to make a big deal about birthdays.  I give fake birthday spankings!  They think it is so funny because I pretend to spank them, but I do not touch them!  We sing, and I give each of them a giant pixie stick!  They love it!!!
After lunch our birthday boy's dad brought some cupcakes to share with the class.  As our birthday boy walked out the door he asked my assistant if the class could hide, and when he came back in everyone could yell "surprise!"  So of course we did!!!!  We all hid, and when he came in we surprised him and sang happy birthday!  He had the biggest smile on his face! 
Definitely the highlight of my day!!!

Lost...but not really

You may think I have been lost for about 2 months, but I'm not! I have just been busy. In the past 2 months I have continued to teach 19 kindergarteners, teach a high school youth Bible study, stay sick, celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, visit New York City, visit Hilton Head Island, and continue to date my wonderful boyfriend and spend as much time as I could while he was home for Christmas break. Just typing that reminds me of how tired I have continued to be! Life has been fun, and it is about to get even more exciting.

Starting Tuesday I will be taking grad school classes. My classes will be Tuesday and Thursday nights and mainly online. I am excited to start this chapter in my life. I am also a little scared! I am mainly frightened that I am going to not manage my time wisely. You see I am a great procrastinator! It runs in my family! I hope that since that is already worrying me before classes have started that I will not let it happen!

The good news is I finally downloaded an app for Blogger on my phone! Another excuse for not blogging is that I do not get on my computer much anymore because I have my iPhone. I think this app will help me out some! Let's hope.

Hope everyone is excited that I am back!!!
Enjoy the pictures that sum up the past couple of months of my life!
