O Autumn, Autumn, wherefore art thou Autumn?

1.) Is anyone else ready for Autumn to arrive? And cooler temps? Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is out and I’ve already had a few. It just makes me even more anxious for cool, crisp air, falling leaves, crock-pot meals, football games, scarves and boots, and all the other wonderful aspects of life that Autumn brings!

2.) I don’t get to see sunrises near enough, but any time I do, I can’t help but smile and take it all in. Our God is SO good!!

I’m really enjoying my students and Valley View in general.  The past couple week’s we’ve been studying about fables, and the kids wrote their own.  I’m currently procrastinating grading them all by updating you all on my life. 🙂 Next week we are starting on the Civil War.  The kids will write letters from a soldier’s point of view.  I might be a little bit excited about this upcoming unit!!

6.) Last weekend my cousin, Lisa, came in to visit for a few days. It was fun to catch up with her and show her around the town. I also enjoyed having a running partner again. 🙂20130907-161910.jpg20130907-170936.jpg7.) Speaking of running…I am officially signed up for a 5k at the end of this month. I am excited to run it with my college friend and teammate, Jessica.

8.) I was on my way to Bible Study the other night when I saw this. I had to quick sneak a picture.  All I can ask is WHY?!?!  Not going to lie…biker masks like this freak. me. out.20130907-170924.jpg9.) Tommy and I scored big time at the farmer’s market this morning! Usually I do a really bad job at scheduling my grocery shopping and am stocked with produce when I go to the farmer’s market.  This week, I got it right and was ready to restock. It worked out perfectly, and I am so excited to have fresh, locally grown fruit and veggies for the week!

11.) I am now counting down days until next weekend as I’ll be seeing my sweet friend and Russia-roomate, Stephanie, as well as having fun-filled girl’s weekend with my mom and sisters.  Not to mention we’ll be going to see Wicked!!! Can’t! Wait!

12.) Happy weekend to you all! 🙂
