Did you know...

...you can be a Mom AND a teacher? This has been a very busy but fun week so far. Monday I was at my kids school helping out and Tue. and Wed. I was a substitute teacher. On Tuesday even though I was subbing I got to sit with Ben and eat lunch. During lunch, a little boy who I didn't even know, came up to me and said "I didn't know you were a teacher, I thought you were a mom".
My most favorite things in life have everything to do with Homemaking....family, kids, house stuff, crafts. Since moving to Georgia just a little over two years ago, I have been so lucky. I have been making crafts to sale at one of my local antique stores and last year when Madi started school I started substitute teaching at their school. I have always loved kids. Even before being a mom, when I was in the Air Force, my first three years were spent in the Pediatric ICU at Wilford Hall. My second job the Air Force gave me was flying Aerovac out of Yokota AB, Japan. Every time a mission with a baby or child came up they would call me in. Most people are scared of the delicacy of tiny infants and children but this was my specialty. At church I always worked with the Primary kids or in Young Women. Besides being a mom I think I finally have found that being a (Kindergarten)teacher is my dream job.

Ben and Madi are so lucky to have you as a mom. You have that fun, spunky spirit that makes kids just flock to you.

See...this is why we hit it off in Germany~ we love all the same things! Only, I couldn't do the nurse stuff b/c I'd faint at the sight of a needle I do believe! Oh, I love the new header on your page! It even looks 'spooky' from the angle you took it! Loved talking with you yesterday. I miss you and your sweet family. xo, Les

I started subbing at my kids school about 4 years ago and I still get comments- aren't you Jameson's Mom? I love it though. I like being able to get a better idea of who my kids' friends are and what they have to deal with at school every day.

I bet your kids love having you there at school with them.

I love the comment the little boy made about being a mom, I love the things kids say. I didn't realize you were LDS, don't you just love primary kids. I've been working in the nursery the past couple weeks and the kids are so cute. So when you say you went to Weber State, is that the one here in Ogden?
