Before and After

So Jeff got another haircut today. He had never used a buzzer before so we decided to try it. We soon learned though, that if you cut it too short...too bad. I think he still looks incredibly handsome, and his curls will be back soon :)


Cuteness Galore!

Adam, my nephew is just my favorite...(along his twin-sister Rachel)...especially when they do things like this...

Easter Excellence

So Smiths ran out of egg-coloring kits, so we decided to water color our eggs this year. We highly suggest it! Just take a look...

Shedding Some Tears...

It's true. I cried when today when I left the wonderful third grade class I have been working with for the past month. As my partner and I headed out the door, the kids thronged us with hugs and goodbyes, and even a couple of them had tears streaming down their cheeks (both of them boys) :) We left with hand-drawn pictures, rocks, shells, and their used pens as parting gifts. One month goes by so quickly, but I feel as though I have been teaching them for months. I suppose its because I got to know each one of them personally and was able to develop a bond with each student. From this experience, I have come to realize the love that our Heavenly Father has for each of us, because if I think I love these kids, I can't imagine how much more He does. Thank you Third Grade class, for securing my desire to be a teacher.
