It is so hard to believe that last Friday I completed my 4th year of teaching. I feel blessed to have a job that I can honestly say I enjoy going to everyday and also that I get to work with amazing people who are not only my co-workers, but my friends. I have wrestled with the idea of going back to school to get my specialist's degree to do administration, but I love teaching so much that I just don't know if I want to do anything else. I guess we will just have to see where the Lord leads me.
We had a pretty uneventful holiday weekend. We made a quick trip to Branson to the outlet mall and we spent Sunday and Monday in Bolivar with my family. Justin and my brother went fishing in between the rain, but unfortunately they didn't catch enough for us to eat. This week I am enjoying my time off before I begin my four weeks on teaching summer school on Monday. People tell me I am crazy for teaching summer school, but I actually enjoy it and hey, the extra paycheck is nice and it keeps me from losing my sanity by being at home for 12 weeks. Then I get the whole month of July off and 1/2 of August and we are VERY EXCITED for our vacation to Vegas.
This weekend we are heading to Sikeston for a wedding. It will be nice to get away for a bit before going back to work. We are attending the wedding of Jenni Gillespie (the sister of Justin's best friend) and we are looking forward to seeing friends we haven't seen since a wedding last summer. Also, the winner of last years America's Got Talent, Neal Boyd, was booked to sing, but we aren't sure if he still is. It will be amazing to hear him in person if he does sing at the wedding.
Here are a few pictures of Makenna. She decided to get in the laundry basket the other day while I was folding clothes to watch her Saturday morning cartoons.
