So tomorrow starts a new adventure. Summer is officially over and all teachers in this area will be reporting back to school.
But since last week was new teacher orientation, I got a started 3 days sooner. Last Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday were filled with information. More information than my little brain could take, actually. But I made it through and tomorrow starts teacher in service.
Woo-hoo...okay I'm only kidding. I am anxious, ready, terrified, and excited all in one. I will be the Life Skills teacher for grades 3-5. More than anything I am nervous about ALL the paperwork! But I am believing and praying God will give me all the tools necessary to do my best.
The funny thing is life skills has always been the job I never wanted to do but for some reason knew that is the job I'd end up getting. It's not because I didn't actually want to do life skills - it is just special ed in general scares me. I have always felt it took an extremely special person to do that kind of job & I guess I just never thought I'd be that person. I guess I just didn't feel I was equipped enough for the job. But God does know best and I am so thankful he has called me to be a life skills teacher. Throughout most of my time in San Antonio, I often would tell God - ok I am ready and where ever you want me to go, I will go! And I believe this is exactly where he wants me but at the same time I am so scared. I believe it is only natural considering this will be a new adventure for me in a new place. So far I could have not laid out better plans for my life regarding the way things have turned out this last month, so I am confident he IS the one who will carry me though this next school year.
As for new adventures...I have been trying to spend as much as my free time with AB. He has been working really long hours and so when I get a free moment I try to swing by "his office" to see him. This week they will start pickin' cotton! Which means 16 hours or so a day in the field...that makes me exhausted just thinking about it. But I already have plans to go out and ride with him and of course take pictures! :)
Here are few photos I've snapped w/ my phone while out in the field with him.
This is what plowing looks like my friends...
Other than that...I have been busy (super busy) with Honey B. Boutique orders, which is a great thing and busy getting prepared for the school year.
I feel so extremely blessed and stand in awe of God's amazing love. Hope you all have a fabulous week!
