The writings of a 1st grader...

So many funny things happen with my 20 First Graders each day..but this one might be the top of my list right now....

Today during Writing I was going around and watching students' write. I stopped suddenly at a desk when I saw something on a paper that did NOT look good. After having the student stop and read it to me, she informed me that it said "Today during calender we counted pennies to six" ... I will just let you use your imagination to decide what 2 words she might have spelled wrong that did NOT look good at all! I was so thankful once she read it to me and I discovered what it really said!

I know, I know...

I have got to get better about posting on here! (Thanks for the reminder Jessica, haha!) I had been wanting to change our layout for awhile, and so I never posted because I knew once I got on here I would be busy for awhile. I want to play with stuff more but I will settle with this for now! Drew loves this picture from our engagement pictures, and I think it captures us great. He is always making me laugh!

We are getting married THREE months from today-crazy! The thing that is even crazier is that my best friend is getting married this weekend! Absolutely insane :) I am super excited and cannot wait to be with her on her big day!

In wedding news.. things are going great! I met with my florist again Saturday, I just love her. I think it is so neat how God has just made our vendors to be such awesome people. It seems all of them we just instantly clicked with and loved from the start! After this weekend things will really start happening.. next weekend I have bridal portraits, and then the next weekend are my first two Bridal showers in Wichita Falls (and Holliday!) I am super excited about those! Drew's mom is going to Holliday with us for them, so I am excited she will get to meet so many people and spend time at my parent's house. Drew found an awesome verse I am going to get engraved in his ring, it is Malachi 2:15 but in The Message version it says "God, not you, made marriage. His spirit inhabits even the smallest details of marriage. And what does He want from marriage? Children of God, that's what. So guard the spirit of marriage wihtin you. Don't cheat on your spouse." I really like it, (obviously I will just get the scripture reference engraved inside the ring..) I think Drew and I are both just very ready to be "The Pennywell's" and not the FUTURE Pennywell's haha!
Student teaching is going great, I actually only have 5 weeks left and have been there 8..which is just absolutely insane. All 20 of my students are so dear to me already..the thought of leaving them April 8 and I could already start bawling.. yeaaah I am going to be complete mess! They are hilarious, somedays they can ruin my day..but most days they make it great!

Well, that is about all that is going on here.. Hopefully I will remember to update a LOT sooner this time! :)
