It's all starting to sink in.  In just a few short weeks life as I know it will be over.  A new adventure will begin.

My feelings about all of this change almost as often as the weather in Arkansas.  Snow in May?  Seriously? I'm just thankful it wasn't in the area when I live.

Andrew and I have started loading our cars each weekend and moving stuff from the apartment to House B.  I've started bringing things home from my classroom.  So much so that the walls in my classroom are pretty much blank.  It's pretty sad.

My students told me today that my room no longer feels like home. :(  Break a teacher's heart!

I was having a particularly rough day the other day.  I text my family and asked for their prayer.

Immediate change.

I am so thankful for the power of prayer.  I spent some time with my sibling-in-laws last night.  They are so funny.  God has blessed with me some great family.

The last two days have been much better.  I'm trying to enjoy my last weeks at my current school.  No matter how ready I am for summer and to live with my husband again...No matter how excited I am about my new school, I want to slow down and be in the moment with the students and coworkers I have now.  They are my second family and I love them dearly.

Speaking of my new school.  I'm loving it already and I'm not even there.  The current math specialist emailed me welcoming me to the district and suggesting some workshops she thought would be beneficial.  The 7th/8th grade math teacher emailed me offering to attend those workshops with me.  I've been in touch with some of the 5th and 6th grade teachers through facebook and email.  I already feel welcomed and like part of the family.

God is good!
