Everything come with a Price-Tag!!!

Why is it so hard to concentrate on the here and now...oh because I'm going to Wales! Finding out so late has proved to be a little stressful, price-tags on everything have gone up!!! AND considering its New Years Eve the day we fly in can't lower those price-tags, unfortunately! We are still trying to work out details for our few days in London and Manchester before we report to Howells. I think after Thanksgiving, and Jennifer and I are both finished with the semester, (December 3) we will have more time to devote to planning and what not. If anyone has suggestions...let me know!

Jennifer and I bought plane tickets last night!!

We are leaving December 30th and are scheduled to return March 28th.

So exciting, but at the same time, it was hard to push the "book flight" button...thats a lot of cash, but sooooo worth it!!!

The News!

I found out the news today! I will be traveling to Wales, at the end of this year (yes, like 6 weeks) to complete my student teaching! I will be at a school called Howells! (here is the link Howells School) It is an all girls boarding school in Denbigh, North Wales. Check out some pictures here.

My partner in this crazy adventure is Jennifer! We have hit it off really well, and I am excited to have her as a roommate next semester! Jennifer is an Early childhood-4th grade generalist so we have a little different career focus but it will make things interesting!

We have been praying and pleading for almost a month now that we would get news, and now that we finally got confirmation, we are both overly exited to start the journey! All of this wouldn't be possible without our favorite person in the world right now, Kim Parish! Thank you so much!!! And thanks to everyone else for the encouragement and support!

I will be keeping this blog up over the next several months, leading up to departure and throughout my time away, so you should subscribe so you can get email updates when I post a new blog!
