Thankful Thursday!

I have a lot to be thankful for right now!

1. I have a JOB for next year!!! Thank you God for opening that window :-) I will be a 4th Grade Teacher at an Inner City Performing Arts Charter. I am so excited! I taught at this school 3.5 yrs ago as an undergrad for a creative writing partnership and I LOVED it. It's a good school doing some pretty GREAT things in the city. I will also be starting an after school dance club for the itty bitties...K-1-2's :-)

2. Because I have a job, and grad school is over, I get to take a break! Well, I'm trying too....in and around planning, shopping for, and prepping my new classroom :-) There is a certain art to doing nothing...it's tricky but oh so necessary at times. I need to be refueled by mid Aug!

3. I have/had a lot of weddings to attend this summer. After a few crazy years (including that 1 yr intensive masters :-) it's been SO nice to catch up and spend time with old friends! What a blessing.

There it is friends, my big news and my top 3 pics for Thankful Thursday.
Happy Weekend,
