My first "teacher work day"!

After all the fun of Christmas break.....the fun was over... my alarm clock went off bright and early this morning! Adam & I both had got in a horrible habit of staying up way too late....and then sleeping until around 9:00. The only day we got up early was Christmas morning! We were at Adam's Granny's house by 5:45 to make sure we didn't miss Ben waking up to see all his presents! I wanted to watch him open them, but Adam just insisted that we be there....cause he has never missed a Christmas with him!! Isn't he just the best big brother ever?? :)

Anyways... back to my story. I did have to get up this morning and go to my first "work day" as a REAL teacher!! It still hasn't hit me yet that I am finished with school....and it probably wont until I actually get a PAYCHECK...!! My day was good, I did a lot of work to get my classroom ready. I will only be there for a its not like I had to do a lot of moving in! Im just there for a short while.

Adam started at UTC today! I was so proud of him. He was really nervous this morning about going to a different school where he knew NO ONE! But of course I knew he would do fine. He is taking three engineering classes. Please help me pray that he can focus on his school and make good! Pray that I will be the wife that he needs to support him and encourage him when he is down. He still has a lot of stress on him and he worries more than I do sometimes!

I hope everybody had a great day. For those of you who have kids I know you will be thrilled to send them back to school tomorrow!


  1. I read your survey. How cute! I'll bet that was fun. Kids can be so serious. Good luck to both of you on your new adventure, new life. Enjoy it. I fixed you and Adam a mailbox at Church, you still have Christmas cards there. I thought you knew about it but I noticed today you have lots of mail. Have a good week!

  2. Adam will do great at UTC and as always you will be his rock and support in all he does. I know the two of you are so proud of J. and his commitment to Christ. The two of you had a direct hand in his coming to know Christ as Lord and Savior. I am so proud of you both.
    You will be great as a teacher and have a wonderful time.

  3. Just wanted to tell you how proud we were to hear of J being saved. God is so good!

  4. Cina, I know how scary and nervous your first day can be once you are finished with school. Though, I have complete faith that you will be one of the greatest influnences in each and every child's life that walks through your classroom. Always remember to keep a smile on your face and when you need to cry, laugh instead, it will make you feel better! Love you and can't wait to hear teacher stories!
