One HUGE thing I will miss.....

                                                   A treasure from my kinder friends!

             My friend, Dawn, covering up the Bud Light sign for the pic! LOL!

                                                       Sweet friends!

   Tonight, I was blessed to have one last dinner with my amazing Kindergarten team before we move to Tennessee! I am really going to miss my co-workers who are also dear friends!  This was a very sweet night...but hard night for me!  Of course, there were a lot of tears shed! I could not have asked for a better team to work with!  We have had a lot of fun over the last 6 years!   
    My friend, Dawn, made a scrapbook with notes from each one of them!  It is something I will treasure for a lifetime!  How special it was to read all of the notes! :)
    As I think back over my time at Esther Elementary.....I will have to say that it has been one of the most wonderful and exciting parts of my teaching career!  As we move,  I am leaving part of my heart at Esther Elementary in Lebanon , MO!   I will never forget each one of these special people who have made an impact on my life!  You all are the BEST!!!

Sorry, it has been so long since I last posted!  Just wanted you to know that Joe resigned our church yesterday as pastor and we will be moving sometime this summer to Nashville, TN.
Joe is taking a position as a program director at the Free Will Baptist International Missions Department.  
Needless to say...I am a little overwhelmed at the task at hand!  We have to sell our house, find another house, say good bye to good friends,  find a teaching position, sell an inflatable game business and our girls will be starting new schools in the fall!  So....we have a lot of things going on in our household right now!  Please pray for us as we make this journey of faith that God is leading us on!  I have a variety of emotions going on in my head right now!  I know God is leading and He will take care of every detail....I just need to believe that with my heart and not just with my head- because right now, it is a little more than this girl can take!
We will be taking Karlee tomorrow to Nashville and leaving her for the next 3 weeks as she goes to France on a mission trip!  Please pray for her during this time!  
Just wanted to update you all on our family!  I hope to write more in the near future...when I can finally see over the boxes of stuff that we have!  I do know one thing....we are selling a lot of stuff!  How can you collect so much "junk" in just a few years!   So....garage we come! :)  
I would appreciate your prayers- I need all that I can get! :)
