I don’t want to jinx it, but I have such a good class this year! Love the little ones! But again, it’s only the second week of school :/
A lot of guesses..
I guess sometimes I just don’t understand how some things turn out. One second you think “yeah, I agree with you..” And the other second that person turns around and is showing the complete opposite of what he or she have said. Just don’t make sense you know..? And it’s like, “Ok, I guess you didn’t mean what you said?” Then it turns defensive like “whoa, I guess I’m sorry for not feeling sorry at all.”
It’s just confusing.
I love going to bed and waking up to my sweetheart every night and day. Sounds cheesy, but it’s true! Love has got to be the greatest gift. We went to the cabin this weekend and before we knew it, it was already time to come home. He leaves back to school again in a week. Going to try to spend as much time as possible together until then. I’m gonna miss him when he’s gone. 😢

Doing what I love.
I love what I do. I love that I don’t wake up dreading going to work. Sure, sometimes I wish I just had a little bit more time to sleep, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to go in. I like that each day is somewhat a new day. Each day is a different experience. I like that I am entertained by 5 year olds.
Sometimes, I feel so lucky that I’ve found my passion and something that I absolutely enjoy doing. Sometimes, I feel selfish for feeling this way because others are still searching for it while I’ve got it already. Is it wrong to feel lucky?
Then there are times where I reflect back on the journey that took me here. Some say I worked hard to get here; others may think I got it easy. The other day, as we are all now on social media daily, I reconnected with an old high school friend. I asked the usual question, “what have you been up to?” He was telling me where he works now. While reading his response, I thought to myself, is this all you strive for? To work at a dead end job? Okay okay, maybe I’m being a little ignorant and judgmental but you have so much potentials to do great things. One lesson that I picked up as a teacher is to believe that everyone can do great. If only we can get this message engraved in our minds and believe in ourselves. Ok, now I have no idea where I’m going with this. I guess basically, strive to succeed. I know, we know that you (as in everyone) can do it if your heart is in it.

Anyways, can’t believe I go back to work tomorrow already. I am ready to teach Kindergarten again! This past weekend Lue and I flew down to St. Louis and then drove back up home. We spent Friday at the Gateway Arch and wasn’t able to go up. We tried again on Saturday before we drove home, but because the weather was too cloudy, we wouldn’t be able to see anything from atop. Better luck next time :(
Anyway, it was a great way to end my summer. I needed a little getaway and I got it. Now, I’m looking forward to focusing and starting a new school year with the little ones!
What a waste of time today.
