Spirit West Coast and the Strawberry Festival!

This past weekend was crazy, but tons of fun! On Wednesday night, 5 YWAM-ers from Denver came to stay over at my house for Spirit West Coast. It was crazy, but tons of fun. We stayed up late talking and watching Friends. On Friday, we all headed out to SWC to work! They worked at their booth and I worked at the KLIFE booth. It was awesome to see Noonie and get to hang out with all of them. I didn't stay late because I wanted to rest so I could be healthy for the next day. On Saturday, I worked at the booth for a little bit and then hung out with my house guests and saw tons of concerts. I got to see Downhere, Wavorly, Disciple, Tobymac and Switchfoot. It was tons of fun! My back made it through, I was very impressed. I went to PT today and they worked me hard because I wasn't feeling any pain....now I'm feeling it. :)

On Sunday, after my awesome visitors left, we Kirsten, Julie, Allen, Alyssa and I all headed out to Watsonville for the Strawberry Festival. Basically all we did there was eat. :) Strawberry quesadillas, strawberry funnel cake, chocolate covered strawberries...it was awesome. I actually made it out of the place only seeing one student. Amazing.

Yesterday I started my training week. Im being trained in a new language arts program. I am loving the program but am bored of the training. :) Luckily, my room is already finished and looks awesome. School starts a week from tomorrow. AHHH! Crazy. Just plain crazy. Does anyone know how to teach 4th grade? Let me in on your secrets. I got to see my class list, and it looks pretty good. I'm getting excited...but we'll see! Hope everyone is doing well!

3 things:

1) my hair looks really short
2) i don't think i have any eyes (only sunglasses)
3) those were a lot of strawberries
4) i apparently don't capitalize either
5) sorry, i meant 4 things

also, in regards to teaching 4th grade, my only trick is to give them cheez-its... go figure.
