My first year in Urban Ministry Completed!

Well, today was our last day of inservice at Holy Family Lutheran School.  I have to admit -It was a pretty hard school year for me and I am so thankful to the Lord that I was able to make it!

Here are a few pictures of my kids towards the end of the year.

These first three are of the kids making necklaces for their moms for mother's day.

These next ones are of my kids and their science fair projects.

Crazily enough - I signed my contract for next year. They asked me to come back and teach 4th grade.  Which means that I will have the same kids - I had to really think hard about it because they are quite the handful. But my principal thought I did a good job with them and wanted me to stick with them for one more year.  

My due date is December 9th, so my last day of teaching (theoretically) will be December 5th and I will return March 16th to finish out the year.  This way, I can keep my insurance throughout the pregnancy. Please pray with Tim and I that we will find someone we can trust from church or Trinity that could watch the little one for those last 10 weeks that I finish up the school year (as Tim will most likely be working full time by then and finishing up his MDiv).
Thanks so much!

I am working at summer camp this year for the school. I will be working for 7 weeks 8am-4pm Monday - Friday. We are thankful for the Lord's provision over the summer months :o)

Happy Summer everyone!

I am so proud of you! I hope that you have a wonderful week of rest and relaxation by the pool before the summer program starts up!

Glad to hear that you will have insurance throughout your pregnancy by working next school year and also for Lord's provision of summer camp this year.

What an encouragement to hear after a difficult year that your principal thought you did a good job with your class!
