Teacher Appreciation Week

This week has been teacher appreciation week, and I just have to say that I have the sweetest kids ever. They have been so good to me. I have gotten cupcakes, candy, coke (even though they get mad at me every time I drink it because I said I was giving it up for new years haha), a plant, a mini donut maker, a head massager, an itunes gift card, and a bunch of other fun treats. My favorite part though, is the sweet messages they have written me. I am so lucky to have gotten the greatest 2nd grade class. This school year has been long at times, and pretty rough at others, but one thing I know - is how much I love my kids. They have even started calling me 'mom' sometimes because they think it is funny that I refer to them as 'my kids.' Here are just a few of the notes I have gotten:

"Ms Adams thank you for being a grate teacher. youur my Favorit techer I hop that you have fun when you. Get maryd. Love Adela"

"Thank you for being a sensational teacher and role model. All of your effort this year is appreciated. You do our job well! You are amazing! Love, Sydney" (written by a mom haha)

"Dear Ms. Adams, this big and I mean big jar of candy is for you! It's got so much candy for you because you are the best teacher in the whole wide world! From, Jessica"

"Dear Ms. Adams you are the best teacher! Love, Megan"

Now obviously we all know I am not the best teacher, but I do love those kids. I have been counting down the days until summer because I have been so excited to move on to this new chapter in my life, but I am really going to miss them. 15 days and counting! Honestly it has turned from anticipation to despair. How can I just move away from my 23 kids?

So when my neighbor's Food Network Magazine accidentally came to my house, I MAY have read through it... :) and I about peed my pants when I saw this. Is this not the greatest thing you have ever seen?! Well naturally I immediately had to go online and purchase it. Well... with the week I had last week, I am surprised I haven't been baking up a storm. So right now I am gleefully awaiting this to come out of the oven...

Don't worry... I will publish pictures of the final product soon. Along with pictures of my BYU GRADUATION! Woot Woot!

A few pictures..

So I haven't posted pictures in forever! These aren't the best pictures, but they do show a little of what we have been up to! :) Sorry about the ones where you have to turn your head haha I couldn't rotate them.
This is the night we got engaged. I didn't feel cute at all and we were in our comfy Sunday clothes, but I am glad I got a picture of that memory!
Here is a side view of the ring! Brent designed it and it is absolutely beautiful!

We went and saw Mystere at the Treasure Island in Vegas and it was amazing!!
Here is my handsome fiance :)
I think this was outside the Venitian in Vegas... the weather was so beautiful!

Dirty Laundry

This thought was pasted on the school's weekly newsletter and I really appreciated it. It really made me think. It is crazy how true this really is...

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. "That laundry is not very clean," she said. "She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looked on, but remained silent,. Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this." The husband said, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."
And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.
Many times in life it is easy to blame or to complain that we have it hard. During these times step back and look at what is asked of us in a different light or from a different perspective and the burden often becomes lighter, and we realize it was not what we thought.
