....Watching the Butterflies Dance....

I'm sitting in my classroom watching the butterflies dance around. We just finished with the baby shower at my school. Balloons had decorated the shower with butterflies tied to the end of the strings....and now they dance around my classroom with the movement of the air/heating unit. It just makes me smile to see them!! It reminds me that my little girl will soon be here. It is also a reminder that I'm blessed with an amazing group of people to work with. It's more than just a faculty...it's a family. Since I've started teaching I feel the Lord has blessed me with many mini-moms! No one can take the place of my mom, but it's nice to have mom-like people around you. There are also those that feel like brothers & sisters....crazy aunts & uncles(not that I have any of those...HA!)....and other extended family. I really felt that today at the baby shower. I've worked at Tulip Grove for 8 yrs now...and when you spend that much time with people...they are family!!! I'm bless....my family is blessed....to have so many people that care for us, and who have shared, are sharing, and will share in our adventure as a family!!

Now you get the fun of putting stuff together. I am under 5 weeks and counting..shower this weekend (after 3 boys my SIL thought I needed a girl one) luckily I should only be getting clothing and diapers so storage and laundry. I am so glad that you have such a great place to teach! Take the butterflies home and hang them somewhere.
