Today we buried my precious grandmother, Gommie. She was 96 years old. Her life was a demonstration of true love to her Lord, her husband, and her family. So comforting to know that she is in Heaven with Grandad and has a brand new body!! I love you, Gommie, and will forever treasure the lessons I learned from your life!!

Nathan is now 9 years old, and now has his first broken bone. He was riding his scooter down a hill, going very fast might I add. He went to stop himself and crashed onto the pavement. He was at his Pop and Jo Jo's and they took him to the emergency room. They said all of Chickasaw County could hear him. JoJo said that he was very brave. We are very fortunate that it was just a broken wrist and a few scrapes on his shoulder and knees. We go back to the doctor on Tuesday to see how it is healing and how long he will have to keep it on. I have a feeling that this may not be the last broken bone, especially since he LOVES sports. We love you, Nate, and hope it heals really soon!!

My first week of teaching went very well, but was sooooo exhausting. It is so mentally draining, which for me is the worst kind of tired. Another hard part is not getting to see Mari Morgan before I leave in the mornings. I do the "kissing hand" to her every night at bed time. Nathan is my early bird, so I usually see him. I really miss taking them to school and picking them up. On the other hand, what is keeping me going, is that I know that I am right where I am supposed to be. God gave me this job, and I have to do my best!! I love everything about HHES. The teachers have all made me feel so welcome. I also realize that this would not have been possible without a wonderful husband who supports me. He takes Nathan and MM to school and picks them up every day. I know that this has been a huge transition for him as well. I love him and thank him for his faithfulness to our family.

For the past 5 years, I have been a TST coach at Desoto Central Elementary. It was an awesome job! I have learned so much about how to work with students' from all different backgrounds with many different disabilities. I am so thankful that God gave me this opportunity. I was able to be at the same school with Nathan his 1st, 2nd, and third grade years. Mari Morgan started Kindergarten this year, so I was able to be with her for her 1st year of "big school". This job was flexible, so I was able to be Asst. Room Mom in her class. That was a joy!! Now, God has given me another great opportunity. I will be finishing out the year for a third grade teacher at Hernando Hills Elementary. I am so excited to go in and help out. My class is great and I look forward to spending these last 2 months of school with them. This is a HUGE adjustment for me and my family, but I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.
Bye Bye Jaguars, Hello Tigers!!
