playing catch up...

well, after almost 3 months, i guess it's time i get on here! so...a brief catch up on what's been going on...

the big news...i'm dating this AMAZING guy named Tim. i've known him for a long time, but finally at the end of december i said yes when he asked me out! we went out on new years, and we haven't spent a weekend apart since then. he's wonderful...he's perfect, but i didn't realize what a fit we would be until recently. we joke about his persistence paying off, but i think that things just had to happen in God's time. luckily, i guess that time is now! i can't imagine life without him! here's what i made him for valentines day...
aren't we cute??!!!

i haven't been to scrappy lately. i did clean up and finally moved the table into the scrap room at my house. actually, tim helped me clean up :) i'm hoping this will inspire me to get busy!

things are going pretty well at school...same old, same old! we're going on a field trip to Andersonville on friday...we can't wait! i'm a little nervous because after spring break (which is only 2 weeks away!!!!!) we have the CRCT. this year, all 8th graders have to pass math to go to the high school, so as an 8th grade math teacher, the pressure is on!

i guess that was the reader's digest version of what's gone on so far in 2008. here are some more pics...
this is when anna had to leave for Africa! She's a teacher in Cameroon...
Here we are being cute again!I chaperoned a youth group trip to Gatlinburg...these we the girls in my room. They were SO MUCH FUN!!!
St. Patrick's day Lucky Fest in ATL...he's a little Irish, I had to kiss him!

leave comments and let me know if anyone is still reading this...i've missed my blog-time...i need to catch up reading everyone else's now too!
have a wonderful wednesday!!!

Happy New Year...welcome 2008!!!

HAPPY '08!!!
I've recovered from last night, and I'm settling down for some Georgia football! I'm jealous because my brother's there and I'm stuck here on the least I won't have to wait in line for the bathroom :)
Hope your new year festivities were fabulous...mine were! I went with a friend to party. The apt we went to was down town Atlanta. The view was AMAZING! I had so much fun, but my camera died. The only pic I have from the night is this one...glad it turned out so cute!
As the new year rolls in, i have high resolutions, but hopes for great things. Enjoy the rest of the night, and GO DAWGS...SIC 'EM...WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!!!!!!!!!!

twas the night before Christmas...

i'm at my parents ready for santa...that's right. i'm 27, and i'm going to get up early to see what gifts are sitting out on the couch from the big guy in the red suit...and i'm proud of it!!!

here are some pics of my preparatory week...
this is my Sunday school class at our Christmas lunch. since we're all young and single, it's easier to meet for lunch than to have covered dish!here's my cute baby, Sassafras, in her santa baby shirt...she hates it!!!my tree all decorated with red and black!my parents didn't have a tree up when i came home, and i insisted that they get one! mama and i went on friday morning...with starbucks in hand, and picked one out. of course, we left it on top of the car for daddy to unload it :)my great aunt didn't have a tree either. she sold all of her Christmas decorations years ago, then bought a new pretty house this fall. her daughter and son-in-law are coming to stay with her in the new house, and i think they needed a little tree! i bought this one for her, and we decorated it on saturday. she was thrilled!!

as Christmas traditions go, this one is probably my fav...the candle light service at church. i brought in the camera and snapped a pic this year! it's a little blurry, but i think it's a cool effect!

well, now that all the prep work is finished, it's time to enjoy the holiday. have fun celebrating this CHRISTmas with your family!

decorate tree-check!
buy gifts-check!
wrap gifts-check!
hang other decorations-check!

i can not believe i'm all caught up on Christmas prep! now it's time to relax!!! of course, relaxing means cleaning the house, taking out trash, washing clothes, and maybe then i can do a little scrapping! as soon as i get some decent pics of the tree, i'll post them!

as a teacher, i love this time of year. not because i get half a month off (which is FABULOUS!) but for many reasons...the kids are in the best mood. sure, they're wild and crazy ready to get out, but still, happy students are better than bumbed out students! also, it's exam time...those are easy days for everyone...especially when giving scantron tests. i've said from the beginning of the year that this was going to be a good one, but i've been really surprised at how close i've gotten with some of my students. one of them came with her mom to visit me on monday. she gave me an amazing gift, which made me did i get so lucky? it's not about the gift, it's about students who care as much about me as i do about them. if i wouldn't have followed God's direction sending me back to t-town, i wouldn't have these amazing 140 8th graders that i look forward to seeing each day! as i approach two weeks without them, i know i'll them! however...for now, i'm enjoying time without grading papers, any lesson plans, or getting flip charts ready for the next week! woo hoo...Christmas break is here!!!!!
