Going back to Zambia!

I have officially decided to go back to Zambia this summer!  I will be working alongside other Teach ONE teachers in the Family Legacy schools to train and develop Zambian teachers.  This trip will be a little bit shorter than the ones I have done in the past, but the timing works out perfectly with other commitments I already had for the summer.  I am so excited to go back and love on those sweet kiddos!  Please join me in praying for the teachers there, the Teach ONE team, our travel, and the students we will get to work with while we are there.  My trip will be June 23rd - July 3rd.

If you feel led to give to the funding for my trip, my donation link is:

Thank you for your prayers!

I love our annual tradition of Friendsmas!  I love hosting, and I was excited to host for the first time in my house this year!  It was nice to have a little more room! :)

I made ham sandwiches, and we had chips and dip, hummus, queso, and of course, crockpot hot chocolate!

We do an annual Secret Santa exchange, and this time, April drew my name.  She got me the cutest picture holder that is already hanging up in my office.  I love it!

I'm so thankful for these sweet friends and our holiday traditions!

December 2015

December is one of my favorite months!  I love coming home to the glow of the Christmas tree, love the time of year at school, and love the anticipation of Christmas with the family!

We wrapped up our Baylor home games with the last game against Texas.  The game was interesting!  We were not playing so great because we had in our 3rd string quarterback who had not played quarterback since high school some 3-4 years ago!  It was terrible to be losing to Texas, especially with some annoying fans around us!  At one point, a huge fight broke out on the field between players and the Baylor players stormed across the field!!  It was crazy!!  After halftime, things picked up a little bit.  We started basically playing without a quarterback!  For a short minute, we thought we had a chance.  We did score, but we didn't end up winning.  It was a sad day for the Bears and a sad way to end the season.  They fought hard, though, and we will always love our Bears!

I went to the Town Center Christmas party since I don't really have a campus Christmas party anymore.  It was good to catch up with TCE people, and I am so thankful that they still accept me as part of the group!  

Love these silly and sweet friends!!  We had fun at the photo booth!  #dreamteam 

On the last Friday of school before Christmas break, it has become tradition for us to go to McKinney to celebrate!  It was the girls + Mike.  He is always a great sport to endure our conversations and silliness!  We met at Cinnammon's and Mike's house to see their cutely decorated house for Christmas then headed to dinner at Spoons.  We ended the night with getting to pie from Emporium Pies and ate it at their house while watching the newest episode of Fixer Upper.  It was a great night welcoming Christmas break! :)
