Thanksgiving Break has begun! I figured I would take a moment to talk about what I am thankful for. At 25, I have no complaints or regrets in my life. It has been pretty awesome so far. I have so many great memories from my childhood especially from this time of year at Navarre. All the Thanksgivings at Navarre will forever be my favorite memories. Middle school is when softball began taking over my life, which I loved every minute of. I discovered that I had a semi-good talent for fastpitch pitching, Coach Ty and Mama devoted so much time developing my skills. High school softball ruled my life and I loved every minute of the craziness. Plus, I kind of became obsessed with scooping ice cream at the BR. So obsessed with all that great money I was making, all the people that would come in that got to know me, and of course my co-workers especially those that I remain in touch with today. Entering college at Southwest, I met so many more great girls on the team. We were not the best team by any means, but we sure knew how to have fun when we played and on the road trips. I met Eric at Southwest, he became one of my biggest softball fans, and of course my main squeeze :) Moving on to the U of M my softball career may have ended, but I got more into my career path and loved my education courses. Apparently I loved learning about education so much, that I am still doing it 3 years after completing my bachelor's, I have one master's and I am 3/4 done with my second :)
My list of thankfuls:
-Eric and JoJo: Eric and JoJo are my boys. They are always there for me, they make me laugh, they keep me company, and they love me. What more could a girl ask for :)
- Our Baby: K, well I guess a girl could ask for more considering I have a miracle developing inside me. Eric and I are beyond excited about getting to meet our baby girl or boy. It is amazing how the development of a baby progresses throughout the 9 months. It is all so exciting and scary at the same time. Our lives are going to change dramatically, but definitely for the better.
-My Cerrito Family: The seven members of my family are all unique. No two people have the same personalities or even really the same interests in life which always makes family gatherings interesting and fun. My parents are great, Mama is always busy from one thing to the next (that must be where I get my busy-bodiness from) and Daddy is just Daddy. He hangs out at the house with his best pal Lacie. My sisters are the best! I love spending time with both of them and I am so proud of who they are. My brothers are crazy, but life wouldn't be normal if they weren't. They enjoy life and that is what matters.
-My Grandparents: My grandparents are the most loving and caring people I have ever met. Grandaddy is such a sweetheart always expressing how much he cares about us and memommy is just too cute. She loves to talk, I can tell her just about everything and my favorite word she uses is darling. I love spending time with both of them so on my breaks from teaching I always find the time to have a lunch date with them :) They are both elated with becoming great grandparents which makes me even more excited!
-My Faught Family: Eric's family has taken me in as one of the Faught's ever since we started dating. His family is always joking around which always makes for a good time.
-My job: I could not ask for a better place to work. I love my job so much each and every day. I don't think I would say that if I were at a different school. BES has such a friendly loving environment for the faculty and the kids are pretty awesome too.
-My friends: I love getting to spend time with my friends. The funny thing about my friends is that many of them are 15 or more years older than me or a couple of years younger than me, but that doesn't bother me one bit. Friends are friends no matter what their age!
