Today is our last day of school! Woo hoo!
|Beau chilling on the new school office couches|
Here we have:
Austin, B-R, Turkey, Fabz, Bro. Valentin - groundskeeper and Bible teacher, Pastor - principal and Bible teacher, and me and Nicole - trying to make it to heaven - HA.
|As the year wound down, the closer Nicole and I came to completely LOSING IT. This summer is going to be a great time of rejuvenation.|
|Pizza smothered in Valentina hot sauce|
As the kids ate, I went around with the selfie stick, sticking in their faces and up their noses.
("Trent, why are you filming up my nostrils?")
|These guys each ate SIX PIECES OF PIZZA!|
|Everyone thought the selfie stick was hilarious!|
|Nicole enjoying her lunch and the fact that she is officially on BREAK!!!|
I got a little daring and decided to hang my phone out the window for a picture with the actual school building...from the third story. My palms were sweating.
It was SO BRIGHT outside though, we got mostly ones like this:
|1...2...3...OK OPEN YOUR EYES|
The boys will be coming for the next few weeks for an hour of math class with our new math tutor. He's awesome!!! He is the brother of a man in our church and is in college studying to be a math professor. He is a total answer to prayer!!! I've taught math for the past four years, but as the kids progress, it has gotten harder for me - teaching math in another language is a whole 'nother level of Spanish that I do NOT speak! And math can be difficult even in ones own language....
Things calmed down for the last few days of school; everyone was finishing up their work and wrapping up loose ends. The days were beautiful and sunny so Beau and I would sit outside and work on our tans. I took on the task of grooming him and getting all his loose hair out. This dog is a shedding machine.
|He enjoyed all this attention - if you couldn't tell.|
He'd get this glazed expression on his face whenever I'd start combing him.
Nicole says this is Beau, trying to look like a Disney princess - HAHA!!
It's been a good year. I really can't believe that it is already over. I remember opening up the year's new lessons on the first day of school and scrolling down all the way to the last lesson and thinking, "We will be here in no time." Sometimes in the moment, and especially in these past few weeks, it felt like the days were dragging on and on. Nicole and I have had to fight spiritual and attitudal battles. Some were on the part of the kids and some were just between Nicole and I - HA! We can laugh about it now - thank God it is overrrrr! Bring on summer break! Bring on the warm weather, sun, and water fights! I am ready for family time and all the good things these next couple of months shall bring.
