Ahem, may I have your attention please for an important announcement:
I am officially done taking night classes!!!
It is such a relief to have this commitment over with. Last Thursday night was my last class. It was my science class and we had a science fair. We also had a pot luck dinner and we were allowed to invite our family members, so Andrew came to support me. It was a nice conclusion to this two-year "marathon" (as I call it!).
On our way home, I was reflecting aloud to Andrew that I really feel Our Lord has been present with me throughout this whole program. I knew I was taking on a lot last year when I decided to teach and go to school full-time. Then last February, Andrew proposed and so I was teaching, going to school, and planning a wedding. Then, after our wedding we found out that I was pregnant. So now, I have been teaching, going to school, and nurturing Baby St.Hilaire. Needless to say, I have had my plate full for a long time now. I can hardly imagine what my life will be like, now that I can focus more on being a wife and mother. But as I said, God has supported me and blessed me abundantly in the last two years. There is no way I could have done everything that I did without God's guiding Hand.
Now I have three more weeks left of teaching. I will be truly sad to go, as I have really grown a deep love for teaching and my students. I often refer to them as "my kids" and I feel that they are in a way. I will truly miss each of them.
However, my heart is in a different place now. I look to the near future with curiosity, excitement and nervousness. Please keep me and my family in your prayers during this time of transition!
