I'm reading through James right now, so you'll notice most of the verses are from there.

Ok, I'm setting a new goal for myself. In addition to simply blogging more, (since I've been recently told how pathetic I am), I'm going to try to post a daily verse. Now, I know "daily" is a pretty big leap from someone who hasn't blogged since August. So, we'll see how good I do.

Year #3 is off to a successful start! I had a great first and second day. I've met all three of my classes, all 62 kids! This is the first year I'll have three classes. The past two years I've taught two classes Math, Science, and Social Studies. This year, because of an increase in numbers, I have three classes. But, the good news is, I only have to teach Math and Science! I'm super excited about that!

I'm going to have an MRI done today cause I've been getting really bad headaches for the past month and we can't figure out what's causing them. Pain meds work for a little while, but then they come right back. Anyway, we're sure that it's nothing, but doc just wants to make sure we rule out everything. So, I'll be going in at 4 this afternoon. Say a little prayer for me please. Thanks!

The last week of school there is always a staff volleyball game. It's the principal's team vs. the vice principal's team. Last year, I played on the principal's, and even with all our talent, we lost. This year, I played for the VP's team. And, for the 4th year in a row, we won! The kids love it! And, I must admit, the staff has a lot of fun too!! The following is a picture of the winning team!

I don't know why I'm just now getting around to doing this, but I thought I'd share our Tuesday with you. Micah left at his normal 5:15 am for work, and it took him about 2 hours to get there because of the rain. That's 30 min extra to his already long drive. He had already been frustrated cause it took him 3 hours to get home in the rain Monday night. We thought things were going to be better since Tuesday afternoon was rain free. Not so much! He didn't know before he left or alternate routes might have been an option. However, he discovered after sitting (yes, no movement) on I45 for 3 and a half hours, all lanes of I45 were under water and only the shoulder was passable. He left work at 3:30 thinking he was going to have an early night, and he didn't get home until 9:00. Yes...over 5 hours on the road. And we thought his 1.5 hour trip was a long time! Needless to say, neither of us were in a good mood when he got home. Pretty much ate and went to bed! Fun times!

Alright, I know some of y'all were beginning to wonder if we were still alive since I haven't updated the blog since before the wedding. Yes, we are, and we're doing great!!! For those of you who weren't at the wedding, it was great! It was such a special time for Micah and I. My father and Micah's grandfather performed the ceremony, and we had lots of friends and family there celebrating and supporting us! We have some pictures up on Facebook. Below are a few from the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. We had a blast!!!

So, today was my last day to be Miss Gilbert at school. I took of tomorrow and Friday to prepare for this weekend. It was really the best choice for my sanity and the safety of my students! ;) J/K They've been so cute all week. They know when we get back from spring break, my new name will be Mrs. McMahon, so all week long they've been "practicing" calling me by my new name. I even had one of my sweet students buy me a gift off my registry. How cool is that??

So, I realize I've become pretty bad at keeping up with the blog. Apparently I can only handle so many things. Work, house buying, wedding planning, blogging, running (to prepare for the wedding), etc...

So, if you haven't heard the good news already, Micah and I are house owners!!! Well, not officially! We're waiting on inspections and such, but they've accepted our offer and we have a closing date! So, all fingers crossed, on March 4th we'll be home owners! We are SO excited! God is so good! I wish you could all see how it fell into place. It was all so amazing!

So, it's been crazy in the Gilbert/McMahon lives lately! With only 40 days (seriously???) until the wedding, I am beginning to feel the stress that I hadn't yet felt. Things have been going smoothly, but we're getting down to the wire. I think we have plans every weekend from now until the wedding. We had our first shower this past weekend. It was given by my side of the family. It was super nice! I don't have any pictures yet, (cause my camera died, of course) but I will post them when I get them! Micah's parents came down for the shower, and they met my parents for the first time. All went well; we can finally breathe! ;) Micah's mom went with us to the shower, while him and his dad went to the shooting range! It just goes to show the difference between men and women. We like presents and they like guns!

We finally heard back from the bank about the house we had put an offer on, and it sounds like all offers are on hold at this point. The bank is selling the house in a "loan pool"...still not exactly sure what that means! Anyway, we went back out with our realtor today, and we've found another house we like. So, hopefully tomorrow we'll be putting in another bid. We've learned our lesson though. We're going to try not to get too attached so soon! We'll see how it goes. I'll keep you updated! Thanks for all your prayers!
