...and now for a little bragging

Today was our first day meeting at the school.  I think it went better than any of us expected it to go.  I had these great plans of taking pictures of all of the kids rooms and giving you all a little tour.  But once I got there I had so much to do that I forgot to take my camera out!  So next week I will give you all a tour.  Here is the one picture that I did get today...  
Now on to my bragging...

My husband isn't always what you would call romantic.  I don't get flowers often, I am not always surprised with nights out, or overnight trips.  But I am okay with all of that.  That's not really us, you know.  But when Eric does do something out of the ordinary, or "romantic," he does it right.  Today when he got home from a meeting he had a brown gift bag with him.  I thought maybe someone gave him a gift at church today, and I really didn't think anything more about it.  But then he gave me the bag. 
I was very surprised and so happy.  He just wanted to let me know how proud he was of me.  And let me tell you friends, I love knowing that I make my husband proud.  I know how proud I am of him and the great things he is doing with his life, ministry, family, etc., and if I can make him feel one fourth of what I feel for him, well, that makes me feel so good. 
Inside the bag was...
As you are seeing the Reese's Pieces, I am eating them!  The thing laying down is gum, I couldn't get it to stand up!  So here is my bag of sweetness, straight from my sweetie!

Tomorrow I am going to a conference with the 4 other staff members from church.  Just me and four guys in a car...oh joy :)  At least one of them is my husband.  Actually we all get along really well, I pretty much get to hang out with my friends everyday.  We are going down to Rockford, Illinois to visit Community Christian Church.  They are part of a network we are apart of.  I am excited to see their facilities and learn from some of the best.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
