Early Tuesday morning after a large and amazing breakfast my parents and I began our journey to Ohio. This trip truly made me realize how blessed I am to have the most amazing parents in my life. My mom and dad were both a huge help in setting up my bedroom and especially my classroom. I often am a tad too much of a perfectionist and a bit too meticulous. By myself a bulletin board takes me hours. However, with the help of my mom we were able to complete the bulletin board in 15 minutes.
If I say so myself..it turned out pretty cute!
After the bulletin board was finished. We continued to add more decorations to brighten the classroom.
I absolutely love the huge world map my mom and sister got for me..it definitely will come in handy when teaching 6th grade Geography.
Sadly, after getting my classroom somewhat organized and grocery shopping I had to say good bye to my parents. Although I am very good at hiding my emotions in public..that was very hard. It has only been 24 hours since I have seen them. However, I miss them terribly!
Early this morning I headed over to the school and attempted to finish my classroom..here is the almost finished product
After finishing my classroom I decided to be adventurous. For the very first time...I shut off my GPS and went for a drive without the aid of a little woman continually saying "when possible make a U-turn...recalculating.."
In my little Middle of Nowhere town..I came across a quaint little library. I decided to go in a check it out..and as soon as I can prove I am now an Ohio resident I am getting myself a library card.
I then drove along looking for something in particular. You see, back home, I had this park,bench bench and fountain that I called my own. It was my own special little place where I'd often go to read, pray, and simply think and meditate. I wanted a special place of retreat for myself in Ohio as well...and then I found it..my own little park! I am sure it will become special to me....
My secluded little place
Please continue to pray for me. My desire is that I will be a blessing and make an impact on these country people in Middle of Nowhere, Ohio.
