back to school...

School has started and is in full swing already! For those who don't know, I am teaching 2nd grade this year. I am so excited about it and love my class. I have never been more exhausted in my life though. Man, 18 seven yr olds can wear you out!
I am so excited about how the Lord is going to use me in this way. I know that I can have such a huge impact on these sweet children. The only hard part is the "you can't talk about God in school" thing. My prayer is just that the Lord will use me, I don't know how, but I know He will.


DMV...enough said.

Well I have had a very exciting couple of days with my new friends at the McKinney DMV.
It all started on July 2  (my birthday, in case you don't remember, but of course you do), when my Alabama driver's license expired. My thoughts were, "no big deal, we're in Hawaii, I'll get it fixed when I get back". I  was waaaaay wrong. Fast foward, Wednesday, after FOUR HOURS of waiting in line in 105 degree weather, I am taking my permit test. Yes, the written test you take when you're 15. awesome.
There weren't any spots to take my road test, (yep, that too), so I had to come back on Thursday. So I show up Thursday morning and wait to the huge line to get my appointment at 2:15. I can do that, go work in my classroom for a bit, then come back then, right?
Well, I show up at 2:15 and pull into the driveway to wait on someone to issue the test. Ps. I drove there illegally, woops. The lady comes over to me and all-of-the-sudden my window won't roll down because...wait for it...my car is DEAD in the driveway for the test at the DMV with cars behind me. Poor 16 year olds scared out of their minds.
Hours later, after AAA and David, I am now a proud legal driver in the state of Texas.
