I survived!

By the grace of God I survived my first week and 2 days of school! :) The first couple of days were pretty rough, but it is getting easier and easier everyday. I got a new student the first day of school, so I now have 21 five year olds!! They are all so much fun, and I have had a blast getting to know their personalities. (I can already tell that I will have plenty of funny stories to tell!) I feel like I have such a huge responsibility caring for them all and I pray daily for patience and wisdom. They are like little sponges at this age and I just hope that I can be a positive influence on thier lives. I can see that God has a plan in all things and that His hand was definitely on my life when I was moved to Kindergarten. Thanks for all the prayers and letters of encouragement my first week of school!!

I know you are such a blessing to those kids. Hang in there. The first year is hard. I am so impressed with the way you are keeping it all together.

We all love you so much!

You know those kids think you are the best!
