It's official.

I'm a soccer mom.
Corban played his first soccer game on Saturday
and he loved it! Technically they didn't win.
Actually, they took a royal beating, but as far as he's concerned,
they won. and we'll stick with that. Because they are four years old,
and no score is kept.

Ok but really the other team scored like 12 goals.

BUT, I could not be prouder because my baby scored one of our two, yes two, goals!
He does not let the fact that he is a good 6 inches shorter than everyone on the field
deter him from being a soccer genius. But, the thing that makes me the happiest
is that he loves playing so much!
The Stallions (sweet name right?!) play again this Saturday at 1:00. Maybe this time I will
remember my camera... oops.

Go Stallions!

ok so guess what

I got a job!
I am going to be teaching first grade!
I could not be more thrilled with where I ended up
because, listen to this...on Wednesdays... are you ready for this?
I get to wear athletic pants!! Every Wednesday!
They call it "Wind Suit Wednesday", which for me translates to
"Athletic Pant Wednesday Because That Swishy Sound That Wind Suits Make Makes Me Literally Gag"
Isn't that the best??
Oh and those darn cute first graders don't hurt either!
So, in summation, I got a job and it's awesome.

But really, school starts Wednesday and I'm scared to death.

seriously do it.
you won't be disappointed.
unless you don't like it.
in which case, you might be.
but you'll probably like it.
unless you don't like good books.
and if that's the case, then i can't help you.
so just read it.

Before I die

I WILL visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
This is not optional.

I have never. ever. ever. been to Disney World or Universal Studios.
That's practically child abuse.
But this situation can be redeemed with one little trip to Florida.

Oh, to walk in the halls of Hogwarts...

Butterbeer? Pumpkin juice? Don't mind if I do!

Oh... hey Hagrid! Thanks for letting me drop by!

Donations welcome.

This WILL happen.

Thanks for letting me be completely and unforgivably nerdy.

glory glory hallelujah

i find peace in the fact that my God is bigger than any
problem or stress in my life.
he carries all of my burdens because he can.
what a great feeling to give my stress to God.

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek with all your heart. I will be found by you,' declares the Lord..."
Jeremiah 29: 11-14
