Summer 2012

I'm back...again!  Here's to hoping I will do a better job about blogging this school year!
I had a great summer.  I taught a summer program at my school to incoming Kinders the two weeks after school was out so my summer didn't really start until July.  I had about a week and then I went to Liberia, Africa for 9 days.  It was the best trip of my life.  I went with 12 other women from my church.  We went to Ricks Institute and had VBS for children from the school and surrounding villages.  We were able to share the love of Jesus to around 280 children!  We also did two day of teacher training for the teachers there at Ricks.  The school serves K-12.  We provided them with ways to integrate reading into their curriculum and some behavior management ideas.  I am ready to go back.  I am praying about when I will get that chance. 

It took me a while to get back adjusted to being home and the time difference!
The week I got back I moved my older sister to Nashville, Tennessee.  She is working as a school counselor in the area.  I am sad that is she not 45 minutes away anymore. 
The next week I enjoyed a week with my twin at the beach and then I had to help her move to a new town about an hour away. All these changes have been hard, but I am excited for both of their new beginnings!
My boyfriend worked in Wyoming for the summer so I was a very happy ecstatic girl to pick him up from the airport and have the last three weeks of summer with him.
I have read several great books this summer and enjoyed lots of afternoons by my aunt’s pool.
As much as I am sad to see the summer over, now that tomorrow is the first day of school...I'm ready! So excited about starting this school year!
