Being home and being lazy

Well blog friends, my last day of work was last Friday!  Woohoo!  I have enjoyed being off the past week and not having any real plans (except getting some cavities filled, yuck!) and just relaxing.  Though, I need some other people to be off work to hang out with me!!

Last Friday was also Riley's 1st birthday!  She got two new toys and 2 cookies.  One was in the shape of a squirrel and the other was in the shape of a birthday cake and candle.  She enjoyed the cookies and thoroughly enjoyed her toys!  One lasted 2 days, and the other, which was labeled as virtually indestructible, lasted 5 days!  She enjoyed tearing into them and managed to destroy both.  So Happy Birthday to Riley.

Over the weekend, Ben and Kevin (his brother) went to the annual Andrews Air Force Base Air Show with some friends.  I was elsewhere but he said he had a great time and that the shows were awesome.  He came home with a wonderful farmers tan and a red face!  Here are some pictures he took at the show.  Happy Memorial Day weekend!

My last day!

Tomorrow is my last day of work!  I am so excited to be finished with it and moving on to my next elementary school teacher!  Of course, I have to do that fun thing we call graduate school before I can teach but that's okay!  One step closer to teaching.

I have been at my job for almost 2 years and I have been wanting a change since the first month there.  Now, that change is finally here!  I will miss the people I work with, most of them anyways.  They are a good group to work with and are sad to see me go.  Yesterday, they had a pizza party to say good-bye and also to congratulate 3 others who had gotten promotions.  And I got a cake and a card!  That was really nice of everybody.

Just wanted to say thanks to my family and friends for all their help, support, and encouragement the past 2 years.  Everyone knew this wasn't my favorite job and I really really appreciate everything you have said or done for me regarding this place.  I couldn't have gotten through the past 2 years without you and God!
