Our new coffee table. I don't really "love" the gold legs, but
the table's a much better size than the one there previously.
at the UF/Ole Miss game on Saturday. There were over 90,000
people in attendance. We were able to pass out many tracts. Even
more were able to read our signs and hear preaching.
A recent picture of some of the youth of BBC. These were those at our
September "Missions Class." This month we talked about and wrote
letters to a missionary serving underground in China.
David and I were offered free tickets to get into the FL/Ole Miss game, so we took
advantage of the offer. We enjoyed ourselves, even though FL lost. It's so nice
that drinking isn't allowed in the college stadiums! We wouldn't have
enjoyed our time nearly as much.
This picture was taken Sunday night at our house. There were several teams
trying to put on frozen t-shirts. This team had the most difficult time.
On another note...
Wow have I been bad about keeping up with the whole bloggin' thing or what! Thankfully, I'm not as far behind in my classroom or in "real life." Actually, I've been doing better than I thought I would... I was a little bit nervous about teaching and keeping up with church activities, keeping the house pretty neat, and the normal routine. It's so much different having my own classroom and being able to plan ahead... my life really works better when I'm able to plan. When I did my student teaching, my cooperating teacher wasn't very organized, so that added lots of unnecessary stress.
Conversations from Third Grade:
Student 1 (adorable, blond-headed girl): Mrs. Brown, did you see Mrs. So-and-So (Teacher's name omitted in case anyone knows her) the other day?
Me: Yep. Why?
Student: Because she was wearing a skirt with a slit up to the knee! To the knee, in first grade! I really don't think that's appropriate for first grade. What do you think?
Me: Well, I wouldn't wear it, but it wasn't scandalous.
Me: Do I dress appropriately for third grade?
Me: Would you let me know if I didn't?
Student: Oh, yeah! (student 1 runs off to play with her friends at recess).
A few minutes later, student 1 comes back and says: Mrs. Brown, I have a hole in my shirt!
Me: Is that appropriate for a third grader?
Both of us: Crack up laughing.
Student 2 (not-quite-so-adorable, but still cute, boy): Mrs. Brown, I liked you way better when you had longer hair.
Me: You liked me better as a person or just my haircut?
Student 2: Well, as a person; but don't worry, you're still the same on the inside. I just liked your haircut better before.
Me: Great! I'm glad you still realize I'm the same on the inside.
