General Relief Society Broadcast

My stake was given tickets to the RS Broadcast and some ladies in my ward and I were able to attend. This is always a wonderful meeting but it was so great to be able to be in the presence of our prophet and leaders of the church. The spirit was so strong and the messages given were wonderful. Here are some of the ladies that I went with.


Racoon

Erich and I took out the trash one night to find this little friend!

Student Teaching!!

The day Erich and I got back from AZ I started student teaching!! It was a crazy trip home. We arrived in Salt Lake when Erich realized we left his car keys in Arizona at my parent's house. Thankfully I knew someone on the flight that was willing to give us a ride home to Provo! The next task was getting Erich's car to Provo. Once again we were so blessed to have Erich's aunts and uncles flying in as well that afternoon so my mom took them the keys in Arizona and they drove the car to Provo when they got in. We got home to Provo to realize that my car keys were in Erich's car!! I was in a hurry to get to my classroom and my wonderful neighbor Jenn drove me and picked me up from my school. Erich was able to catch the bus to work! Note to self: never leave your keys in another state.
I am loving my student teaching experience. I am in a self-contained special education class and my students range from 1st to 6th grade. I look forward to seeing them each day and it really has been a rewarding experience. Once student refers to me as "Merry Teacher." I assume it is a good thing, but not sure how it came about. I can't believe this is my last semester of college, time has flown by!!

Mom's Wedding

Over Labor Day we got to go home to Arizona for a quick visit. Erich's mom was getting married to Martin and we were so excited to be there for their special day! It turned about beautiful and we wish them the very best. We are looking forward to moving home and getting to know Martin more!!
Here are some pictures of their special day.
