We just finished parent teacher conferences! What an amazing time to get to know more about my students. It was a great time of encouragement. We have been totally busy with lots of school activities; watching volleyball & soccor games, chaperoning the Sadie’s Banquet, and supervising student led worship teams. We are enjoying every minute of it, though we are always busy.
I have been thinking and praying about helping coach the girls rugby team, and today let the head coach know that I will help as much as I can. The season goes from November to the end of January, so it will keep me busy but will be worth the investment building relationships with the girls! We are enjoying being here, we are missing our friends and families but keeping busy helps us not dwell on that.
Continue to pray for us in balancing our busy school lives with our fun social and personal time, that the connections with the students will grow deeper, that we make wise decisions with all of our business, and that I will be creative in my teaching. It is hard, lots of work, but well worth the energy, it is just LOTS of energy to be creative in my classroom. Thanks for the prayers!
