We then left for Tennessee to see our families. I finally got to see my niece and nephew again (and Marshall got to meet Reagan for the first time!) Getting us to stand still for long enough to take a picture is tough but aren't we a smokin' hot family!?
|Early morning wake up calls with the cutest babies ever!|
After spending time with my family in Crossville, we headed south to see the Stephens' family in Sewanee. I just love being at their house. There's something about being in the mountains, secluded, on a lot of land and with dogs, cats and chickens! Sadly, no more goats :( We relaxed, played games and visited Grandma in Nashville. I even shot a gun for the first time ever! [Maybe we should rethink our wedding theme -- Redneck?] Picture will come soon as Marshall and myself have failed to upload to the computer!
After a week with our families, we had to head back to Texas. I definitely had mixed emotions. Sad to be leaving our family but happy to see my kitties. (Crazy cat lady). The first day back was my first day in the classroom. I was there for the majority of the day and left thinking I had accomplished so much. When I actually looked at my classroom, I felt like I accomplished nothing. Friday, I worked with my 3rd grade team to come up with lesson plans and Monday started our inservice training. So far, I am enjoying it but am so nervous for the first day with students. Meet the Teacher night is tomorrow so wish me luck as I embrace one of my biggest challenges yet!
More updates to come after the first day!!
Side note: Congratulations to my sister, Jen, on her engagement to Travis! So excited to have one of Marshall's best friends become part of our family!
