Here is a fun little game...Leave a comment on my blog of a memory that you and I have had together. It doesn't matter if you've known me for a short time, or a long time, anything you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you....

Justin's 5th B-day party.

Well, Justin is now 5!! I can't believe how tall he has gotten too. What a stud!

The gift opening:

Justin and Brandon (his cousin from Louisiana that he hasn't seen since he was 2 weeks old, literally):

The cake (I LOVE Costco cakes!):

Aunt Julie and Ginny are being funny and posing as the "black Spiderman":

I got the job!!

So...last week I was asked to come in for an interview with the principal of the school where I am doing my student teaching. My interview was Tuesday morning at 8a.m. (it's a good thing it was first thing in the morning or I would have been a nervous wreck the whole day) and I was asked several different questions by the principal and assistant principal. I thought I did okay and was probably showing my nervousness. Wednesday the assistant principal stuck her head in the classroom and asked me to stop by her office on my I did nervously again! Her and the principal wanted to officially offer me the job for the 4th and 5th grade resource position! I took it, of course, and I am so excited to have a teaching job.
I have a really good job starting end of August but things aren't as busy at my husbands job. He has had some offers for different jobs in other states and has thought about taking them but I don't want to go yet. I would like to eventually move away from Vegas but not now...I just got a great job and want to stay. I am hoping and praying that God will keep us here at least until I can get the hang of teaching my own class!
