One Mountain climbed forever to go!

I have been so blessed so blessed this semester. Student Teaching was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I'm done and I have this bittersweet feeling inside. Some of my little girls cried, a boy that hates pictures took one with me, I had all these sweet gifts. I love my students so much and I will miss them. Ammon Elementary such an awesome school and has a great staff.
I guess I don't have much to write about right now. I'm done student teaching and looking for a job. I applied to be a substitute and I'm waiting to hear back because it'd be good to be in the classroom while I'm waiting to get a "real" job. I hope I do get some sort of job though I need to sugar momma my sweet husband through school. I'm also looking for a night job if I sub during the day because subbing isn't a full-time gig and I should be working at least 40 hours a week don't you think?
I'm excited for Thanksgiving for a couple of reasons. I do honestly love Thanksgiving, but I am more excited for Christmas. I say this because to me these two holidays blend together to me! Christmas is the season of Christ, the season of our Savior's Great Sacrifice! At this time we are extremely grateful for him! Does that not have to do with Thanksgiving!!!!
The other reason I love Thanksgiving and am so excited about it is Thankful lists.... So here mine goes
