It's that time again!

Well, sadly but surely, summer is coming to an end! This summer Bryan worked summer school, so we didn't really make any big vacation plans. I was fine with that though and had a great time with my sweet girl. It was so wonderful to spend so much quality time with her and seeing her change and grow. She sure got into plenty of messes, but she has learned so much! The past week or so we've been spending time up in my classroom trying to get things ready for school. We officially start back to school on Monday, but I try and get as much done before then so I'm not super stressed the week of inservice! As you can see, I work hard, and Abigail works hard at making messes! Haha! I don't mind though. I love having her explore and investigate new things. It means she's learning! ;)
This summer we've mostly been traveling to see the grandparents and also had the chance to go visit our best friends Chris & Morgan McMullen. It was so good to see everyone and of course Abigail loved seeing them. I think she gets bored with Mommy & Daddy sometimes, so she loved all the attention!
Bryan and I were talking today about the way that we feel about the beginning of school this year vs the beginning of school last year. When I think about how I felt last year and how I feel now, it's different but yet the same. I am WAY more at peace with the situation. Yes, I would love to be able to stay at home with Abigail, but I know that's not what God has planned for me right now. I know that He still wants me to teach this year and so I am excited about my new school year. I can't wait to meet my new Kindergarten friends and get this year started! I'm also excited for Abigail to be able to go back to Mrs. Tracy's house and hang out with all of her friends. Mrs. Tracy has been such an answer to prayer! I know it will still be hard to be away from Abigail, but I know that God has a plan and purpose for all of this! He has not let us down yet nor will He ever!
Here's to another great school year! :)

I love your attitude about going back. Can you share some of the positivity with me!? I anticipate lots of ugly tears next week...but we are blessed with sweet girls and jobs that people would love to have, right?
