Good day friends and family! I pray that you are all having a wonderfully blessed day in our LORD! It's a warm and muggy afternoon here. We had some pretty drenching thunderstorms this morning, lasting into the afternoon. I thought maybe it would cool things off a bit, but alas it has turned the atmosphere into a sauna. But I'm not complaining. I love the warmth, and will bask in all it's glory, for fall will soon be here, along with cold temps. :)
So, how have the last few weeks of your life been? Mine, have pretty good. Not as busy as I would like them to be perhaps, but still they have kept me hopping. I have primarily been gearing up for my K-3 teaching job, which begins this week. Tuesday night will be open house, with the first official class day on Thursday.
I kind of have mixed emotions about school starting up. On the one hand I am excited to be working, and serving at our church's Christian school. On the other though I am pretty nervous.
I guess I am just worried about how well the children will obey. I had some major issues with disobedience last year. No amount of kindness or punishment would change some children's attitudes, and that really wore me down. But, the LORD taught me a lot through those times. Patience was the big lesson, and I am praying that patience learned last year, will continue into this coming school year. :)
But over all, I am pretty excited at starting anew, on a clean slate, so to speak. :D
Work around my parents homestead moves steadily along. Animals are fed and milked daily. And all seem to be doing quite well.
I will be completing a personal endurance challenge, for the third year in a row this Saturday. I will be walking fifteen miles, around a local lake. I am so excited about this event. Not only do I get to spend time in the great outdoors, I get to challenge myself mentally and physically. I can't wait! :D
Well, I think I'm going to get off of here for now. I need to get some things around the house cleaned up before I complete and hour of walking this evening. So until next time...
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
