When I teach, I see all the different children who have passed through my lives in the faces of the kids in my classroom. I want to make sure that every child gets what he or she needs and I try to teach them with love and compassion. I hope that my sons and my nieces are getting that same love and attention from their teachers.
I would really love it if some of you would share some first day of school stories to inspire me. Happy stories and sad stories help me understand what my students might be going through!
Thanks for looking and sharing!

Now it is my turn to pass on the award. I have lots of nice friends, but I have two gals that I met since I started doing digital scrapping that I am really happy to call my friends. We have never met in person....but I feel like we have so much in common.
Karen lives in Ireland. I've never been there but I would love to someday. She always cheers me up with her little comments and really makes my day. She always has something nice to say on her blog. She is such a positve and upbeat girl! So she deserves this award.
Fantacy is my other new friend. We have spent some time chatting and emailing. She is an awesome new digi designer! Even when people are ugly, she is still thinking about her Christian witness. It is foremost in her thoughts. I love her character and the sweet comments that she send to me. So I am happy to give you this award.
Of course...I have tons of friends that deserve this award. Stacie, Sara, Diana, Sandy.....the list goes on so, consider yourself served.

I was chosen because of this LO! So now, people from all over the world are going to scraplift one of my "Queen LO!" How cool is that. (For my unscrappy friends, that means that they are going to make a scrapbook page that has elements similar to mine.) I'm so happy!
Now for my life changing event blog challenge from the scrapbook chalet. Anyone who knows me knows that my life was changed forever when Sam was born. At 1 pound 11 ounces, Sam was a blessing for our family.
All the hours that Luke and I spent at the NICU bonding and feeding Sam changed the whole family. We were tested. And we came through the experience as a closer family. I have seen a miracle! God is good and there can be no doubt about it! Now Sam is just an awesome little guy going into second grade. He keeps us hopping and laughing!

Another challenge from the Chalet is to write about my best friend. Well, I have two friends that I want to write about.
Sandy is my partner in crime at school. We have been such good friends for so long. We have laughed together and cried together. She is a totally awesome teachers, the best I have ever met. I want to teach just like her. You couldn't ask for a better friend or a sweeter person. She has a great new grandbaby now, Miss Kaitlin. There is never a dull day with Sandy.
Stacie is my scrappin' friend. We became good friends because we both LOVE to scrap! We go to crops together and have made several road trips together. She makes me laugh so hard that it is hard not to pee in my pants! She is a great support in my scrappin' endeavors. She has a little girl who is quite the little actress. Stacie is about to be mega busy!
These two gals are wonderful women and I am really proud to call them friend.
