23 feb.

i saw an on-line friend post on facebook (we met through a christian message fact, we have met in person since she is from the same area i am in!) that they have a referral for 2 siblings to adopt!! i am so excited for her & her hubby & these 2 new family members they are has been an intense wait, so it is even more exciting to see this finally happen -- what a blessing!!!!!!

22 feb.

today was an interesting day -- i completed my first lesson taught during my practicum...1 down, 4 to go!! i felt it went well, but i will find out what the teacher thought was certainly nerve wracking!

other than that, i have been very sleepy today -- even napped in the chair once i was home!

going to play a few on-line games before dinner, then work on lesson plans tonight...

17 feb.

are you watching the olympics?? i am watching some -- just watched shaun white (the flying tomato) win the gold in snowboarding -- even without his 2nd run he was guaranteed the gold...he could have fallen before starting & still won...but, he pleased the people & did the run & included some fancy spin/flip/twist that he had come up with himself...VERY COOL!

go USA!

6 feb.

this is who i spent most of my saturday with -- the cool kids in my youth group (and youth groups from other missouri wels churches) -- there were 4 other kids who was neat to listen to them share their thoughts on Scriptures and religion and life...good kids! a good time was had by everyone present :)

just a quick photo here -- one of my fave windows at church...we have a lot of stained glass windows, and today they looked awesome because it was so sunny out...just beautiful!!

5 feb. -- post 750

this is my 750th post!!

we did not have a snow day today -- it started once we were all there!! but it was donut friday (yum!) and the student i was to work with was i had a pretty simple day!!

it is snowing now -- has been all day, probably an inch+ at my house -- very sloppy, wet snow!

it is the high school youth retreat at my church...13 8th-12th graders! crazy times! they are good kids & tonight we played a mafia game & did a bunch of bible trivia...tomorrow is full of devotions & presentations...i am in charge of getting breakfast -- DONUTS!

4 feb.

it was a long day...and i smell like cotton candy...the rain/snow has held off so far -- some rain & a few flakes right now...but what will happen tomorrow?? that is the major question!!

i am kind of hoping for a snow day...but i am not getting my hopes up...the student i am suppose to be with is going to be gone tomorrow, so it will be an easier day anyway...

we shall see!!

do you like snow days? did you like them as a child?

3 feb.

it has been a "kind of" relaxing day -- although i should be doing homework!! i need to work on my lesson plans so i can do my observed lessons soon...

this is just a random photo -- taken on my phone & made to look like a polaroid (there's an app for that!)...

hope all is well :) don't forget to blog!! ((and mary jo, i will post some craft ideas at some point, lol)

february 2

february is going to be a busy month for me -- work, practicum, mad science, yearbook, soup suppers, church, power hour, cropping...hopefully i will have some good stories to blog!!

one thing i really like about february is that lent begins -- i can start the Easter stories in power hour! i love all the Easter stories & crafts that are available...maybe not as much as the Christmas ones, but i love them none the less...

another thing i like is the humor of groundhogs day -- see his shadow, 6 more weeks of winter...doesn't see his shadow, spring will be here in a month and a half -- DUH people! but it is always funny to see a marmot in a top hat, lol...

enjoy the month!!

bad start

so i was going to post every day in february -- and i missed the first! oh my!! i will try and make up for it & have 2 posts today...

but i am issuing a challenge to my blog readers who also have a blog! post everyday in february (or 28 times if you missed yesterday) and i will hold a drawing from among whoever does (comment on this post if you plan to try, and make sure your blog link is in there, i will have a post later this month to comment on that i will use for the prize draw)...not sure what the prize will be, it may depend on who's name i pick!

are you up to the challenge??
