Life Is Wonderful

Boy has it been a one crazy couple of weeks.  Here is what my life has been like the past few weeks that I have been absent from blog world:

1.  I finished my Observation Block! That brings me one step closer to student teaching and graduation! I don't think I've explained just what the Block is, so here goes.  In the Observation Block, I took three classes at a high school and then mixed that in with observing a teacher in his/her classroom two class periods each day.  I was only there on Tuesday and Thursdays, but I was there from 8:00am-3:30 pm! Talk about a long day! It was exhausting, but it really prepared me for next semester.  So I got to observe 2 different teachers, which was really lucky.  The first was a US History class, with Juniors and the second was a World History class with Sophomores.  The students and my cooperating teachers were amazing! I was really sad to leave them.

My block classmates were an amazing group of future teachers who I am so lucky to have gotten to know. We all got along really well and had a blast with each other.  Here are a few pictures from our class:


Best group of future teachers EVER!! 





2. We had Thanksgiving break!! Which was entire too short but lots of fun, but too short.  My brother and I drove to our grandmothers together.  Spent Thanksgiving with my dad's family and then got to spend a day and two nights at home.  I just love going home after being gone for so long.

Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving:

Aren't my cousins just lovely?

3. I GOT MY NEW MAC!! Which I am using as I type this post! ; )

4. December is here! I just love Christmas.  There isn't anything like the Christmas season! The music, the lights, the decorations just make me so happy! Even more exciting is that in 8 days I will be back in my happy place....DISNEY WORLD!! Oh my goodness I can't even begin to express my excitement.  Trust me, a whole post will be dedicated to my Disney Christmas trip!! : )

5. We went to Sights and Sounds of Christmas last night and had lots of fun.  We also celebrated Bobby's birthday and had a great time!

Monica, Me, and Sam
 Just look at all those lights! : )



Snowman Tigger!! 

I just love her!


Yay for Christmas music!



So that is what has been happening in my life the last couple of weeks! I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends and so many exciting things ahead of me.  I am really loving life right now and couldn't be happier.  Did I mention I'm going to Disney World next week? Cuz I am!! : )

Till next time!
Happy start of the best time of the year!
