It took 5 hours, 1 large Sonic DDP with cherry, 8 feet of yellow paper, 1 Happy New Year banner, 7 trips to the trash bin, 11 Clorox wipes, 175 copies, 15 minutes of vacuuming, and organizing 12 shelves and 5 centers, but I think I am ready!

3 more days of vacation, and then back to spending all day with 23 of the cutest 7 and 8 year olds anyone has ever seen.

I am excited to see what the new year holds for my students, and for me as I learn how to be the best educator I can be.

I don’t really have any words of wisdom today, but one of the blogs I LOVE to read(, had some questions  to answer and reflect on. Why not?

1. What are you most thankful for?  I have so much to be thankful for! God has given me so many blessings. I am most thankful for the HOPE that I have in Jesus Christ. I am thankful that He has given me a passion for serving, an abundant life, and the BEST family and frie2. What were the highlights of 2012 for you?  Going overseas, starting a blog, starting to teach 2nd grade, going on random adventures, having 3 of my best friends get married, developing deep friendships, and having some FUN adventure

3. What are you hoping for in 2013? I am hoping to continue to grow in my relationship with Christ, to become more disciplined, to invest in my relationships with others, to grow as an educator and leader. I hope to live each day to the fullest and love without fear of the unknown. (It would also be cool if I met my future husband this year, but I know it will all happen when it’s supposed to.:) )

4. Who was God to you in 2012?
 My Hope, my comfort, my shelter, Emmanuel, and Peace. I think in 2012, I felt His Peace more than any other time in my life.
