Study Hall

I am sitting here watching students during study hall. What a drag. I have so many things that I should be doing, but I thought hey why not blog instead. There is not too much of an update on our lives. Just trying to stay busy. Some really good friends got married this past weekend, actually two couples. We made it to both wedding and they were both stunning! We are so happy for both of them. We got to watch Olive while Trey and Nicole went to San Antonio for a mini-honeymoon. Olive is Miller's girlfriend. They are so cute together. I will have to put up the pictures of the two of them enjoying the cowboys game on Sunday. It is adorable. Olive went home yesterday and Miller sure did miss her last night. I am sure they will see each other again.

I can't believe either that our one year anniversary is fast approaching. We are going on a cruise with some of our closet friends. I cannot wait. We leave on Nov. 6 and come back on the 10th. Shaylor has never been on a cruise, so he is really excited! There is actually 3 people going that have never been before. So, it will be a fun experience for all of us.

Well, the kids are coming in from recess so it's time for us to start our writer's workshop. I hope to hear from yall soon!

Update: birthday, school, life, etc

So... my birthday was awesome. I have the best friends and family that made it incredible. Shaylor and I and some of our best friends went to the Rangers game for dollar dog night. We had a blast. That weekend, I went to San Antonio to meet my mom and sister there. We went to Beth Moore which was just what I needed before school started. It was very refreshing to my soul. Then, my mom and sister and I celebrated my birthday and had the best girls weekend. I am so glad we have started this tradition and can't wait for next year.

Now, school. It's been a pretty good start so far. I have 22 kids in my class. 13 girls, and 9 boys. That is hard for me, boys are just easier, but I do have to admit I have a class full of wonderful students. I have a few students that are challenging but are very rewarding at the end of each day! It is very stressful having so many kids, and I feel overwhelmed but I am getting used to it. Overall it has been a good start to hopefully a great year!

Now life. Everything is going pretty good with Shaylor and I. Shaylor is busy working. He really likes working at the service desk. He has been closing quit a bit which is a bummer for us not being able to see each other too much, but we are surviving. On that note, I can't believe we have been married almost a year. What an amazing year it has been.

Please pray for Shaylor and I as we are trying to figure out which path we need to take. We would really appreciate it.

I hope things are going well for everyone! Love you all.
