Made By Day By 7:30am

So the teachers parking lot is in the back of the school next to where the buses drop off. I always seem to arrive when the buses are unloading and see familiar faces, mostly groggy faces, getting out of the bus. 


This morning a little girl who was in the library yesterday (1st grader) said to me... "Mrs Knight...you remind me of my step sisters teacher that she had...her name was Mrs. Knight too. She worked at Sul Ross!" I about cried. I said "THATS ME!" I know small story- no big deal but to have a child's step sister remember you two years later made me smile. I told her to tell her hello! (She has since moved to Minnesota to live with her dad). 


Made my heart smile. 


Also, this morning I randomly checked my google reader before kids start coming to the library and came across The Fisher Family. I read her blog all the time and I love it but todays hit home. I printed it and hung it in my office.


Be still and know that
 I AM GOD 
(Psalm 46:10)

I have the capacity to take care of all of your problems 
(Exodus 16, 17:1-7, John 2:1-11, Matthew 8:1-4, Mark 2:1-12, Matthew 9:18-26 )

I will never let you go
(Hebrews 13:5-6)

Ultimately everything is for your good
(Romans 8:28)

I love you more than you could ever imagine
(Romans 8:38-39, John 3:16)

I can change things
(Deut 23:5)

I can be trusted
(Prov 3:5-6, Hebrews 1:3a, Phil 4:6)

I am in control. 
(Psalm 47:7, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18,  Revelation 21:4, 1 Corinthians 15:57)

Maya Angelou quotes...


'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'

'I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.'

'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'

'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'

'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back....'

'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn..'

'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'

Where Have I Been?

I feel like I have been a very bad blogger lately. I promise I'll be better soon. And then you will all wish I would go back to being a bad blogger. : ) 


Awwww...I am in the library and one of the older men teachers just cut through and told me that he meant this is the most sincere way. He liked my green dress the other day, and my red dress today and he realized it wasn't the clothes that he liked- he thought I was a very pretty young lady. Sweet little man. : ) 


Anyways- I have been go go go. 
**School has started back and I have been exhausted every day when I get home. 
**Justin has been home so much more and I am TOTALLY loving that! 
**We have watched my next door neighbors dog. 
**We are searching for a night stand for my side of the bed.
** We are also searching for a new rug for the living room. The one we have has seen better days. 
** We have eaten dinners with the Cokers.


and yesterday best of all...
...we welcomed a new nephew to love.

Busy

I have been super busy lately. So I will  do this in list form because everyone loves a good list.

1. We have been on the road a lot. We went to Kason & Carla's last Saturday for the day. Then went and spent the night with my parents and grandma. Then a few days later we went to visit to Conroe to see Mr. & Mrs. Knight before Mrs. Knight left for Virginia to help welcome our new niece/nephew. We have been on the road!!!




2. I took 8 girls senior volleyball photos last Sunday. I am happy with the way they turned out. Here is one of my favorites: (the quality got downgraded a lot because I am out of space on picasa)


3.  I had my first day of school this past Friday. It was basically a get to know each other day since its a new school everyone is new to each other. Which has its positives and negatives. But overall- it was a wonderful day. And I felt so official in my polo. : ) 


4. Pip has been obsessed with sleeping ON my pillow the second I get off it.


5. This is currently the background on my computer- such words to live by. (minus the creepy eye looking flowery thing)


6. Here is a look at my empty office and what I will look out at. : ) I'll have to post the after once I get some of my stuff up and it looks like my area 


7. Yesterday morning I took some baby photos for her upcoming baptism. 


8. This morning we went to church, came home, made spaghetti, Justin mowed the lawn, I did some laundry, went and got a snow cone, and now I'm about to go take some maternity photos!! Woo Woo!!! 

9. Tomorrow is our first "real" day of school. We will actually have meetings all day and be learning and preparing for the kiddos to come back.
