Do YOU have on your seat belt and bubble?!



The blog world is so addicting. I am in no place in my life for a blog. I do not have a baby, I do not like to cook, and I am not into photography, however, I AM nosy.......and I figured if I am going to read about tons of random people and their happenings I might as well invite them into mine :) Even though my only reader will probably Shan Baby and precious ha




Well, to catch you up, Unlike my "about me" states I am in fact NOT married yet. That activity will take place on December 20th and let me tell you I am ready :) I moved into our new ( well OLD, but new to us) apartment this past weekend and it is already starting to feel like home I just need my man here to help me blog, ESPECIALLY bc he is the writer ( NOT ME).




This first entry I just want to introduce you to a GLIMPSE of my everyday life. As you might already know I am a Kindergarten teacher at a VERY low income school. My class consists of 23 students, 13 African American, 5 Hispanic, and 5 White. Also, for statistics sake I will let you know that out of my 23 students only 3 live with their REAL mom and REAL dad. The rest live with mostly just their mom or grandma. I think at least 5 or 6 of my students dads are in jail. So, as you can imagine I spend 8 hours a day with a fun group of 5 year olds. It is exhausting at times and I wanna pull my eyelashes out if I hear "Ms. Bluberry/Newberry/Teacher again BUT so worth it. I feel like my job is vital and I get to love on the unloved all day long. I feel blessed.




So.... below is a picture of a little boy from my class. His face has to be blocked out but you will get the idea. .... When we walk down the hall the students have to have "SEAT BELTS AND BUBBLES"... this is a little man showing Ms. "BErry" his best "seat belt and bubble"








haha priceless... I swear I say "boys and girls get your seatbelts on in my sleep" In 11 days I'll check with Evan and see if I really do...
