This picture makes my heart happy! Don't you love the tiny body and large head? I think it's so cool looking! haha!
Me: "Is there a reason you still have that sticker on there?" Dad: "Because I like it. I leave stickers on my golf clubs, fishing poles, and now my hats." Me: "Alrighty, then!"
So not a football fan.
Got a little rivalry going on. A Texas Alumn, mom, and a major Tech fan, Casie!
This picture is just for laughs. Please tell me that you fell on the floor laughing when you saw Casie's face. Is that not HILARIOUS?
It's great to be together as a family again! What a fun evening filled with many laughs and much conversation!

I'm a sucker for simple, inexpensive, creative, wise decorations. Check out this mother of seven who was all of these and more when decorating her home that isn't actually a house.
This woman's decor reminds me of the passage in Deuteronomy chapter six that says, "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."

Most of the flowers were from my mothers pots outside on the back porch, but there are about 4 that were taken at random places i've been this summer - Mississippi, the mall, the lake.
It's so much fun to capture the work of our Creator's hands!

Friday morning I checked my email at lunch to see if the results were posted and I think my heart fell on the floor. It's one of those moments where you freeze up for a second because you don't know if you should open it or wait til' you're all alone at home in case it's bad news.
When it came up I scanned down the page looking for the big bold letters FAIL or PASS. The score wasn't important at the point, I just wanted to know whether or not I passed the stinkin' test. As soon as I saw the PASS I got up and ran into the main office where mom, Diane, and the principal (whom I house sit for and who gave me so much encouragement and study material) were. I barely made it through the door before the words "I PASSED" came screaming out of my mouth.
My mom has been given strict orders from her chiropractor not to lift anything, walk on the treadmill, or do any kind of physical activity, but that girl picked me up and spunt me around breaking all kinds of rules! haha!!
Fulfilling my calling to be super dramatic and nerdy, tears starting welling up in my eyes and I started to cry.
"I feel like I need to cry. I'm sorry, i'm such a nerd. I barely passed.... but I passed."
The assistant principal ordered pizza and we celebrated that afternoon! I love my job! Have I mentioned that? And I love the people I work with! They're so encouraging, caring, friendly, and man.... such a blessing!
Thank you, Lord Jesus! It is only because of You that I passed that test this week, and we may be the only two who truly understand that. I give You the praise and the glory because everything is done for You, through You, and because of You. Thank You for loving me and meeting all my needs! Praise You Jesus!

Your sister responds with, "I'll change" when you tell her that you need to take a picture together because you're both wearing white 'n black.
Your family frequently says things like, "Megan, where is your camera?"
The family dog refuses to look at you when you pull out said camera.
Then you just might be a little bit of a camera freak!

This morning I got to help individual students learn their ABC's - not just being able to sing the song, but recognizing the letter and matching the sound. That was such a thrill! Watching them learn is so neat!
My online courses are still in progress as well; two and a half more weeks and they'll be over.
Beginning this month I'll have to attend a workshop the second Saturday of every month for the next (school) year. There are observation hours that need to be done, testing, and so much more... but i'm making it. Amazingly!
It feels so good to see myself go after something. Sadly, i'm the type of person who waits for things to fall into her lap. But that's so not the case with this teaching deal. I'm putting my faith out there and learning to trust God with each step.
Next Wednesday, September 9th, I take my Generalist EC-4 Exam so if you think about it i'd love your prayers. I'm scared to even talk about it because i'm so afraid that i'm going to fail it. I've thought many times of not even mentioning it to people, that way if I fail no one will even know about it.... but here I am mentioning it.
Life is pretty hectic right now - I feel like i'm going nonstop, but I love where I am!
O Yeah! Yall, guess what? The Nester commented on my blog.... how cool is that? She's like a REAL blogger - like has hundreds of followers/visitors and gets paid to blog. And she commented on my Use What You Have Post. That is so neat! It's like a blog celeb!
Thank You, Lord, for being in control.... even when things seem to be going 90 miles an hour. You know me, You know my struggles, and You know my heart - i'm desperate for You. Help me to give it all to You! Thank You so much for all that You're teaching me. You are so faithful and i'm so unworthy!
