Hello Sweet Cheer: August 2015

FRIDAY

Happy Friday!

O N E

     Today is my final day as Nikke's nanny! I can't believe these last three months have gone by so fast. I will miss her sweet smile and I know I'll cry when today is over. Thankfully, we'll still live in the same town so I have the freedom and ability to babysit anytime her mom needs some help!

     Nine years ago today my Grandad went home to be with the Lord. He suffered for a year with lung cancer and although we knew it was coming, it was still devastating when his body gave out. I can remember exactly how I found out, what I was doing, everything about the funeral and all that comes with it. I was 11 years old. And in his plans for his funeral, my Grandad requested that I speak at it. I was honored. I was nervous. It was difficult but so very beautiful. I miss him every day but find peace in knowing that he is worshipping in eternity!

     We are going to the Holguin family reunion this weekend! I am super excited and slightly nervous to meet so many new people! We'll even meet some that my husband doesn't know. It will be great to spend time with family. Let the good food and fun commence!

     Along with the reunion, I have to get my classroom together! We're headed there tonight with some friends to move some furniture around and get some things in order. We are super thankful that the Grays are willing to give up their Friday night to help us! Next week I'll spend a lot of Monday and Tuesday at the school working on the details, working at my desk, etc. New school year here I come!

Monday Morning Rambles

Happppy Monday, friends!

     This is my last week as a nanny and next week is my first week as a TEACHER! I can hardly believe it's real and that it's so close. I'm so excited to get things rolling and start this school year off well! On the other hand, I will miss my little girl so much. Nikke is a sweet, sweet kid and I am praying that someone amazing comes in to care for her when I leave!

     Instead of recapping my weekend, (because the recap is that we relaxed, cleaned the house and did our normal weekend things), I'm going to list some things I'm looking forward to this week!

     I am excited about finishing out my teacher wardrobe (for now)! I made another trip to Gap yesterday and got some really good deals on dresses, cardigans and blouses. All that is left is to find a couple good pairs of shoes to teach in and I think I'll be set until the season changes! Things I'm looking for:

- A durable, comfortable pair of black flats
- A great pair of boots (brown or tan)
- One more pair of comfortable sandals (my summer pair is worn out)

If you have any suggestions of where to look, comment below!

     I'm looking forward to getting a package from my mom! She's sending me things for my classroom. I think she's including some pretty scrapbook paper (which I'll use to cover my ugly brown clipboards), a small bulletin board, some baskets and a few organization tools! My mom is pretty cool like that, always looking for a way to help out!

     MY CLASSROOM! I'm going up to the school on Wednesday to get my keys are really start setting things up in my room. I am so stoked, I can't wait to make the space feel like me! I plan to bring one of my stand up chalkboards to really help it feel like my own space!


F O U R

     Lastly, I'm ready and excited about following along with SheReadsTruth on a new study that starts today! It's called, This Is The Gospel. I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store!


Have a great week, friends!
