{my little friends}

i so wish everyone could come meet my little friends at preschool.  while it's true that some of them (and let's be honest... all of them at some point or another) know how to drive me crazy, i love getting to be with them and finding ways to help them learn things.

i like little reminders that i'm in the right place.  work isn't always easy (otherwise it wouldn't be called work), but it's a nice feeling to know that you can wake up and go to work and enjoy it every day.

today, one of my little friends, who may be the cutest child ever, can't focus to save his life.  like to the point i get him during nap time because he drives his teacher crazy because he doesn't sleep... or sit still... today, he was able to name all the letters in his name, trace them, and then write over his name with a marker.  that may not seem like a big deal, but for him, it was.  we took a picture to show people and he was so proud when we showed it around :)

i also had a little friend, who in the middle of our fire fighter book, decided to tell me i was 'beu i foo".  i for real have the sweetest kids.

so thankful for a job that makes me smile.  i love working with kids and seeing their joy and wonder for learning

{weekend update}

this has been a fabulous weekend...

for starters, weather was PERFECT!  sunny, warm with a cool breeze... perfect day for...

ENGAGEMENT PICTURES!  ian and i weren't sure if we were going to do them, because my best friend and her husband hid out during the actual event and took some of my most treasured pictures, but we decided we wanted some fun ones of us that are nice, but not 'i'm in the white dress, he's in a suit' deal.  like nice, but still our normal selves.

katie and brad graciously told us they'd do pictures for us, and the pair of them make one heck of a team!  katie is super creative when it comes to shots and came up with a picnic idea, and brad is an excellent photographer who worked so hard to make every shot perfect.  it turned out so fun!  it was a good excuse for me to make a pie and buy some pretty flowers.  we played in a field of dry corn, and walked around campus.  the pictures are so perfect and i'm so thankful for such talented friends!
saturday night we had some friends over and watched the craziest documentary called 'grizzly man' about a guy who went and tried to befriend the grizzlies (which he did for about 12 years, but then, the inventible happened.... they're bears...) CRAZY! (it's on netflix... go watch...)

today, i marked a 'real woman' task off my list of roasting a whole chicken.  verdict is still out as it's in the oven, but my house smells like deliciousness.

so thankful for good friends, for a man i love dearly, for fabulous weather, and for weekends full of reminders of how much God loves us :)

{preschool plague and fall}

well it was bound to happen at some point... i'm actually impressed it hasn't happened sooner.  after 2 months of working with precious, yet snotty and generous germ sharers, i have caught the preschool plague.

this weekend was nice and relaxing.  it included video chatting with a friend who moved too far away, the inaugural wearing of my ugg boots (although not the cutest, oh so comfortable), early bedtimes, extra blankets on the bed, lots of hot tea, and so much football!

i got to celebrate a wedding shower with one of my friends, and did some crafting for our wedding.  i keep coming up with diy crafts, which i may regret closer to the wedding, but currently, i love how they're turning out.

tomorrow is a holiday (which funny side note... we, in kentucky get the day off, but in columbus, they're still going to school... you know... the city named after the man we're celebrating tomorrow), so one more precious day to sleep in.  one more day to clean my apartment and do the laundry that's piled up, but life goes on in a messy apartment.  life is sometimes too good to interrupt it with a dirty pan.  leaving it in the sink one more night won't kill anyone.

hope you've enjoyed one of the best fall weekends we've had in a while!

{it's fall}

it's officially fall :)

i love this season... i love the colors of the trees, the smells of the leaves and coffee, the cool breeze, and the sound of crispness.

life is hitting it's stride.  work is still awesome.  i love my little kids and the funny things they say.  i love that they want to learn, thank me for homework, and when i walk in a classroom, every kid begs to come with me.  it's good for the ego ;)

engaged life is also hitting a stride.  we're finally getting around to doing some planning, and it actually has been pretty fun!  i'm thankful for a fiance who wants to help plan and organizes things perfectly.

has blogging hit it's stride?  probably not.  my days typically consist of waking up super early, going to work, coming home, trying to clean/cook dinner, attempting to keep my eyes open past 8 pm, and then going to bed and doing it all over again.

it's fall, life is happy :)
