Well, yesterday April 2nd, I turned 23!!!
On my birthday, I taught my very first "real" lesson to a precious kindergarten class at Helena Elementary!! It was so much fun... and I am so glad I chose to be a teacher!(Yes, all you negative Nancy's that have always said, "You are going to regret this!" "Being a teacher is so hard!!" "You better not be doing this for the money!"..... again, I AM SO GLAD I CHOSE TO BE A TEACHER!!) I can not tell you how many times someone has asked me what I am going to school for and I always get a negative, rude comment in return... I just think that is so rude! I understand teaching is a hard job; I have been working with children for 5 years now, I know it's tough, but I could never say that to someone! Since I can remember, I have said I will be a teacher, and that is the only thing in the world I can see myself doing! Ok... had to get that out;) I have been working with this class for about 3 weeks now, and it has been so much fun... One little boy asked me to marry him..haha.. He has big blue eyes and blonde hair, and he is constantly giving me the I LOVE YOU sign... I hated to break his little heart...
Anyway, the lesson went great and they seemed to have so much fun!
Last night, the beau and I went to eat at, of course, FIREBIRDS, then we went to crackerbarrel to get the Easter decorations on SALE! I love Easter decor!! Our next stop was Lowe's! We got some pretty pots, and lots of beautiful flowers for Lee's (OUR) house!! I have been wanting to get some to dress "our" little house up! I wish you could have seen me trying to pick out flowers, I do not have a CLUE what to look for!! Luckily, the woman said if I they die in the next few weeks I could bring them back! You better believe I stuck that receipt in a safe place;) I will post pictures later..
Today, I am doing HOMEWORK, HOMEWORK, HOMEWORK, while my sweetheart puts out the flowers!
