The Bad Guy

Today I had to play the awful  role of the dreaded... 
"Mean Teacher".
I HATED it:( 
Boo to being a grown up and having to follow rules.
One more day till the blessed weekend! We are headed to the temple and the balloon festival again. It is going to be a much needed weekend:)

Oh and Dave sure is racking up the interviews! This is probably going to be the most expensive two months of our little married lives. He will be going to New York, Washington D.C and North Carolina all within 2 weeks. 
I am very proud of Dave and his accomplishments thus far!

Happy Days

I have been holding my breath now for 3 weeks now...

I finally found the perfect job! I wanted to make sure I actually liked this position before I told the world:) I am an assistant teacher at Franklin High School's CDL( child development lab). I work from 7:45 to 11:45 M-F. Can you say PERFECT! I couldn't be happier with my hours. I leave just before Dave gets home, but I am back before he wakes up. This has been an answer to prayers to say the least:)

The Details: The preschool is full of 24 energetic 3 and 4 year olds and about 30ish junior and seniors. The preschool is attached to a classroom where the high school students take shifts coming into the classroom. The head teacher (whom I really like) teaches the remaining high school students in the classroom while I and another assistant (who is equally great) keep the flow moving in the preschool. The high school students are each assigned different duties and teaching days. I grade the high school students and keep the little ones in line. Did I mention I LOVE IT! 

Dave almost doesn't know what to do anymore now that I come home with a huge smile from work. A big change from my last job... which we won't name:) The pay is descent and we are looking forward to adding some extra padding for our near future move.

I have been completely occupied with finishing this really fun collage lately. After three long weeks of running back and forth to Hobby Lobby every day with more coupons I finally finished it!
 I have a serious appreciation for people that can make a bunch of things flow together! It took me so many tries to get it to look nice. Not to mention I glued everything on and then was told I did it upside down. Good thing my husband is handy:)
It is a collection of our grandparents and parents wedding photos or at least young pictures of them. I had a lot of fun looking through the old pictures and learned a lot about them that I didn't know. Thank you Lexy for the idea and Tara for sending me the Michael side pictures!
The best part of this whole project was finding out that my vision is not crazy. After disagreeing that the frame was crooked for about 20 minutes Dave measured and don't worry it is just the wall:) I love El Paso!!!
