I love quotes – this one is one that I pinned recently. I love this reminder to give my best to everything.
I am obsessed with scarves. I LOVE them! Luckily, I live in WA where is is cold enough to wear them quite often! Right now I have my eye on this loop scarf at JCP – it looks like one for New Years!
Well, restaurants can be tricky for me because I am gluten-free. I know, I could get salad and some meat or something, but every once in a while a girl wants bread. Or cake. Or both. Anyways, many restaurants are really becoming great with GF options, I recently went to Olive Garden with friends and realized they now have GF pasta too! yay! I didn’t have to just eat lettuce! Now if they could just find a way to make their bread gluten free I would be most grateful. 🙂 Hint Hint Olive Garden (I am sure they are reading my blog right now haha)
This is hard! A big memory for me is probably the bittersweet one of switching schools, and having my last day at my previous school this past June. I created a slideshow and invited the parents in with their children to watch photos of our year. The last few slides contained photos of students I had for 3 years. I taught them from 1st grade through 3rd grade (last year I had a multiage 1st-3rd class) and I had photos of them in all of their grades.
Those parents actually burst into tears (not my initial goal!!!) and it was sad, yet it was meaningful and something to treasure as well. Hard to say goodbye, but I treasure the memories and times with those students and their families, and still get to keep in contact with many of them! Something is to be said about looping or teaching students for multiple years. I know it can’t work for every student – but sometimes it is such a fantastic thing!
Worry less, pray more. I have many goals, but I think this simple statement should become my mantra. It is easier said than done, so I know I will have to work on it!
