Time Flies

Time flies when you're having fun....and even when you're not! :) I still can't believe we are over halfway through June! I made it through my first year of teaching middle school and my 2nd year of teaching! I am learning more and more each day! I can't tell you how relieved I am that I made it through! I am already loving the stay up late nights and sleep in days :) I'm looking forward to some fun summer plans! I've already been able to read 4 books, spend time with my awesome nephews, had some barbeques, and some serious relaxing time :). I still have lots of fun things and can't wait to finish up my rearranging and cleaning of my patio!

In May we had Memorial Day....this has always been a big day for our family but especially since Riley's passing. The pics are of his headstone, with some family, and some of us spending time at my Grandma's house talking about our ancestors and those that protect our country.

At the beginning of June I was able to go with my dear friends Tyson and Melissa to Vegas to see them be sealed. I have known Tyson since we were really little-he's like a brother to me. After Josh and I separated and got divorced Tyson and Melissa were some of my truest friends. Tyson could not have married anyone more perfect for him-I love Melissa! It has been so fun getting to know her and be able to become friends. They are a fun couple and I love that they let me hang with them :)

I was able to take my 9th graders to Lagoon for 9th grade Lagoon day! It was a blast! I love the teachers that I work with. Who knew water guns and shooting at unexpecting students could be so fun :)
I have begun to get used to being single again. I started going to a singles ward and man do they have activities-this week we had something every day Sunday-Saturday! I didn't go to all of them but it was a blast! I'm excited to get out and about again with people my age :) I have to say thanks to all the friends who have stood by me these last few months-I know I haven't been too much fun-I promise it's getting better. Letting go of Josh and all that those words entail have been difficult and at times I haven't been too positive. So thank you to those that have been a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and a person to distract me. I can only hope to continue to progress and try to be happy. In the words of my favorite Dori...I'll "just keep swimming" :) This last pic is of a student from last year...LOVE him! I got to see him last Tuesday and he immediately ran up and hugged me! I haven't seen him forever and love that he remembers me!

i know being single isn't the greatest, but by golly I'm glad we're in the same ward! Someone finally understands the crazy things I talk about!!
