The News...

Ok, I know that I've teased you for several days now and I even got a message on the answering machine pleading that I reveal the news.

I'M GOING BACK TO SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know, most of you thought I was going to say "I'm pregnant" -- well don't give up hope on that either. We're still working on that. :)
I'm so excited about starting school. My college history and the decision on what I'd like to be when I grow up has been a long time coming. And goes something like this: fresh out of high school I started college with the anticipation of becoming a nurse. That didn't work out well... I decided 2 semesters before I was done that I hated being a nurse. SO, I took a two year break during which time got married and I got a real job. After we were married for about 6 months I decided that I wanted to go back to school and get a business degree. I went back to school and two years later had an associates degree in business administration, but again decided that I was done with school. This time I was going to have a baby... WELL, here we are 3 years later, no baby and a degree that isn't worth a whole lot. This past summer when I decided that I wanted to work for one of the local school systems (mainly b/c it was a steady job and had great benefits and I don't have to work summers) I had no idea what God had in store for my heart. I went to work at a local middle school, which I wasn't thrilled about b/c I've never dealt with middle school age kids, but I've meet some of the most loving kids and God has really shown me that teaching and helping kids is where my heart is and where He wants me to be. So, having rambled on about all of this -- I'll be going to school to get my teaching degree. Please pray for me that I'll do well in my classes and can stay focused this time to get the job done.
I'll keep you posted.
