Finding Joy

I really enjoy my job here much more than in the urban district.  I'm able to relax more, and enjoy my students as people.  Though I always tried to before, sometimes I felt like there was a constant expectation for them to be little machines.  Finding joy in my work is becoming easier!

For Wednesday night church I made:

Diet Coke Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

BBQ Pork Topped Baked Potatoes

(No picture.  We had leftover pulled pork, and potatoes were an easy fix.)

Tomorrow after church, I get to hang out with some of my favorite ladies.  I made:

Peanut Apple Butter Bites

These look pretty, taste amazing, and are quick to make.

Here is one of my precious students with an ice cream cake her mom brought in:

We got our new IPhone 5s yesterday.  HH busied himself with transferring all our stuff onto the new phones.  He has a lot more patience for technology than me.  

HH has lost 13.6 pounds!

Woo hoo!! Go Ben!!!

I'm glad you're finding more joy in your work now. I'm a teeny bit jealous, actually. The joy is so far gone for me, that I can't imagine EVER going back to teaching. Maybe I need to move to SD.... ;-)
