Year Six

Year 1 (2008/2009): I officially became a teacher…seventh grade life science.


I was terrified.

They were crazy.

But we survived.

And we had a lot of fun along the way.

Mama K

I guess since I was a day late with Father’s Day, I had to follow my tradition for this post…sorry, Mom:)

Mama is my very best friend. I can talk to her about anything I want to. Sometimes we get mad at each other, but that’s normal. The only reason saying sorry is hard is because I say it too much, or at least it seems that way. I love Mama so much, and when she’s not with me I feel empty. I love her more than I can tell you.

Fortunately, now that we don’t have chores, piano lessons and beans and cornbread to argue about, I can’t remember the last time we got mad at each other:)

Mama K,

You have taught me what it means to show love and compassion to everyone, to do the right thing even when I don’t feel like it, what it looks like to be a good wife, and to trust God in all things. 

Nancy Drew may have captured my heart while I was young, but you are my true role-model. 

I love you more than I can tell you. 

Happy Mother’s Day<3
