And the week is over...

I love that feeling when the last class is taught and the last child is in their parents car riding down the road and the realization that vacation is upon you.
I love being in front of that blackboard I love teaching to my hearts content but I also love having a break.

My winter break flew by so fast.

I spent my week at my Mimi's house. It was so nice doing that. I haven't spent a whole week down here since the summer time. I enjoyed each day fully.

A couple of my friends came down one day and we journeyed to the city. We always have fun adventures.

Wednesday I went to prayer meeting with my sister and brother in law at their home church which was also my home church before we moved years ago.

My cousins came earlier on Wednesday and we had a fun time together. Of course for most of my week I spent with my Mimi we always have fun laughing, enjoyable quiet times and just knowing that each other is in the same house makes our heart smile.

I got to play with my nephew Liam he is a love bug and half. His brothers were having a fun time at my house while I was down here. We were all enjoying our break.

Of course, any trip I ever take I miss my Jeremy. He is my love and my joy. I can't wait to have his chubby arms wrapped around my neck in a hug later this afternoon.

I have also been enjoying a good book this week ohhh, it has been ages since I have been able to sit down with a book it's been VERY nice.

Tonight we are celebrating my parents 25th wedding anniversary. Their wedding date is in June but with Carole's wedding a few days after their anniversary the party had to wait.  And then my dad ended up in the hospital. So now in February we are having their anniversary party. It's going to be a fun night.

Pictures to come soon!

Enjoying my winter break!

I 'm really enjoying my vacation. I love my classroom and students in it. However, it's great to have a break.I can't believe though that it's already Wednesday.

The weather has been wonderful it feels like April vacation instead of winter break.

How has your week been going?

We are blessed

It started out like any other language lesson in the first grade. Prefix,suffix, alphabetizing, compound words and special sounds.

When the class turned I can't really tell you how or why but when it did it would be in the record of the most unique language lesson I have ever had.

The little girl first ask me how she could know how she was saved.

We then went through the whole plan of salvation and I asked if when she prayed this prayer last year if she meant it she nodded her sweet head.

We then went through the promises God has given us of when we mean it and believe it when we get saved that no one can ever take that away from us.

Then other children started to pipe in until I had a bunch of small people wanting to know about the Lord and how He died and why he died and how he rose again,

I went home yesterday with the knowledge that I am so blessed to be saved and so blessed to be bale to teach these little ones the truth.

I woke up.

I got dressed, ate breakfast and carried my Valentines gift down stairs for Jeremy. Covered in pink wrapping paper and smothered with mickey mouse stickers I placed it on the kitchen table with the card on top.

I grabbed the camera out of my purse and placed it next to the gift and I smiled.

I knew Jeremy would love his gift. He loves his little people so I got him a mini little people zoo. I called my mom on my break and I guess he has been playing with the zoo all day long.

So back to my morning I went to school and one of my former students gave me a flower, someone else gave me candy and then I went upstairs and there was a bag on my desk.

A Disney Tangled bag to be exact.  I opened up and there was a box of chocolates and a card from my sweet sister Carole. :):)

So,  so far my single awareness day is going nice. :)

February is here..

"Valentines is a made up holiday." "I know mom but still..." "God's timing Ginger not yours." "I know mom but still.." "Ginger, God's timing."
I am so thankful my mom doesn't care I am an adult and still tells it like it is to me. If I didn't have that I would probably be moping all the time!:)

February puts me in a sour mood every year it does and it cracks me up because I am not one to mope over being single or cry over wanting my prince. Once in a while I will have my moments but for the most part I am fine being single.

Then Valentines comes around and I am surrounded by people who are madly in love and can't wait to give out their chocolates and jewelry and I feel that familiar twinge in my heart.

"When Lord? When will it be my turn?"

I then get a kind reminder from a dear friend in a form of an email.

What can I say. My heart melted and my eyes glistened.

Lord, I will wait for your timing.
