I only have 6 days left of student teaching and I graduate in 12 days! It is so bittersweet. I love my 5th graders to death. I have learned so much from them and everyone at Tyro. This semester has absolutely flew by. It is so hard to believe that it is all coming to an end. In less than 2 weeks I will have my Bachelors in Elementary Education!
I guess this semester has flew by because I have been going non-stop. Thanksgiving break was a lot of fun. I got to see a lot of family I haven't seen in a while, eat lots of food, watch some good movies, hang out with friends and go shopping on Black Friday. I also went to CVS on Thanksgiving and got everything in the picture below for free and ended up making $7 in extra care bucks!
Black Friday was pretty interesting. Felicia and I got to Kohls around 2:30 a.m. and waited behind about 600 people for Kohls to open at 3. It started raining while we were outside in line which was a great added touch to the occasion. After we got in line there were probably another 600 people that came in line behind us. The check out line was a 3 hour wait. It was double wrapped around the store. We also went to Target right when they opened but didn't try on anything so we got through the checkout line fast. We then went to Hanes Mall which wasn't too crowded but by this time we were about too tired to shop so we got a few things and left. I don't know that I'll go next year, online shopping seems like a good plan to me.
On another note, I had an interview for a 6th grade position this week. I don't think I will hear anything about it until next week because they have one more person to interview. I would really love the job though, the staff seems great and it's a really nice school. I'm loving student teaching in 5th grade so I know I would enjoy 6th grade just as much.
This past Sunday we had a great service to kick off the Christmas season. Randy preached about Joy. He said that at the top of our Christmas list should be to not let anything or anyone rob you of your Joy because we have already won the ultimate victory. I wish we could always remember this because knowing that we are saved and will be going to heaven should bring us Joy everyday. And yes, I am spelling Joy with a capital J on purpose.
