two thousand and nine

another new year to look forward to...many great things happened last year and I hope the trend continues. Also many things I hope are overcome this year for my family...like my mom's cancer, the housing market, & job situations.
My grandfather {my mom's dad} turns 90 this March so a big shindig is planned for this summer....it's been a year and a half since we've been to Michigan and my cousins in Arizona haven't met Avery yet...cannot wait!!!
on another note...my school is losing about 400 students to a new school, which I probably will have to transfer-again!- since I am the very last person on the list...which is ranked according to county senority not years of teaching experience....rightfully so. I just want to teach first or second grade...filling out paperwork and should know placement by the end of the month.

on NYE my parents came up & we went to the chinese restaurant we always go to on NYE....they fill the restaurant with tons of balloons!!Photobucket

What a difference a year makes... I just know many good things are to come.

I love the photo of you and your mom!! I want to give you a hug!!!! I do hope this year is great for you and for your family. I feel for you and your whole job situation. That's a lot of stress to move to a different position so often. I will say a special prayer tonight for you!!!! xoxo~ Bethany
