But He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness..." 2 Corinthians 12:9a

Nathan's Award day

This is Nathan's third grade award's day. He received Most Dedicated, A-B honor roll for the year, and a music award that only half of his class received. We were happy to be able to share this day with him. We are so proud of you, Nathan! We can't believe you are about to be a fourth grader!

Our school boy

Not sure why he is doing this

We wanted to take pictures afterwards, but this is what happened when he found out we were NOT checking him out. Didn't think it was a good time for pics!

Mari Morgan's Show Nght

Conxion Gym in Hernando was the place to be Friday night. Mari Morgan's class got to show parents and grandparents what they have learned this year. The place was absolutely packed, so much that I promise you could not move. She did really well. I don't have many pictures. Most of them turned out very blurry. We have enjoyed seeing her improve. She has now been moved up to Hot Shots, which is 2 levels from a competitive team. Go MM!!! :)

Proud Daddy

Excited about your move to Hot Shots! We know you'll do great!!

Mari Morgan's Kindergarten Luau

Mari Morgan's Kindergarten class had an end-of-the-year luau. The teachers bought all the girls a grass skirt and flower to wear in their hair. Mari Morgan adores her teachers and friends and we had a great time. We could not have asked for a better year for her. Not only is she almost reading, but this year has given her confidence in herself and a love for school. We love you, MM and pray that you continue to love learning! We are so proud of you!!

I'm a Tiger!

Today, I received some GREAT news. I have been filling a long-term sub position in a third grade classroom at Hernando Hills Elementary. I took the position in hopes that I would be considered for a permanent position at this school in the fall. Well, the principal, Mrs. Gilder, walked in my room today and closed the door and walked over to my desk. I thought to myself, there must be something wrong. Then, she smiled and said, "I have good news for you." She explained to me that she was going to be able to hire 3 new teachers, and I was one of them. She asked me if I wanted a third grade position in the fall, and I said YES!!! I was so excited and gave her a big hug!! I absolutely LOVE this school. The teachers have been so helpful and supportive. I am due to sign the contract on Monday. It is so awesome how God has worked this out for me. I know that I am right where He wants me to be. So, I am content to be a Tiger!!! Glory to God!!!!

Hanging in there!!

I can't believe that it has been almost one month since I have blogged!!! Since I have started working full-time, our lives have really changed! I think I am the worst in the world when it comes to time management. Most people would have handled this change much better. I feel like I have been treading water for about a month just to stay afloat!

On a different note, we have really enjoyed getting outside more now that the weather is getting nicer. Fun times!!! So ready for Summer!! Here are just some random pics I took.

Mother's Day Zoo Trip

What a great Mother's Day! I woke up to sweet hugs and kisses from my kiddos, plus sweet cards, and even home made perfume. They made it at church, in case you were wondering if Brian helped them make it. So sweet. They were so excited to give it to me. Brian got me some clothes and a floor steamer. I can't wait to use it. Since it was such a gorgeous day, we decided to go to the zoo. We have not been in a few years. It was great to be outside and have a change of scenery. Overall, it was a great day. Thanks to my sweet family for loving me. I love being your wife and mom. :)
