Bittersweet News

Hey all! I'm back with some bittersweet news! I'm so excited and happy to announce that I'm finally moving to Nashville to live closer to my family and teach Pre-k! I'm psyched to go back to Pre-K and have some fun with the little ones! I will miss teaching K, my AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, PHENOMENAL team and my Smith family.

Today I turned in my macbook, the rest of my keys and said my last goodbyes. I've been waiting to post because I'm not sure if I'll be posting anymore on this blog or not.

I had to leave my ginormous, beautiful classroom with the perfect furniture behind. <3
I had to leave 4 amazing, talented, sweet women I can call my forever friends <3.
Ashleigh- We've been neighbors for the past 5 years and I have loved watching you becoming an amazing mommy to your sweet, adorable boys! I admire you so much friend!
Amanda- I know you will be amazing at your new school and I hope you're so happy there! I will miss your sense of humor and your baby is such a lucky little girl! <3 You are making a wonderful momma!
Bethany- I can't even begin to tell you how much I will treasure the memories of our Zumba nights, walks around town, quoting Madea movies, laughing so hard our bellies hurt and all the random times we hung out outside of school. You have been such a wonderful friend to me!
Candy- It was so hard to hug you goodbye. You have been such a great friend and I appreciate your wisdom, kindness and the comfort you provided on the hard days. Our team was (and IS) so lucky to have you. I will miss you so much!!!
And to Rebecca and the teacher they hire in my place- You are going to love being part of such a wonderful team! <3 I can't wait to hear about all the fun you guys have next year!

5 car loads of my teaching stuff home and lots of tears...

But NOW for the happy.... I could not be more thrilled about moving to Nashville, teaching Pre-K and being so close to my family.

I get to spend all summer with these beauties I call my nieces.

Not only the summer, but now because I will live so much closer to them (like hoping less than a 20 minute drive)  I can come over any day of the week, rather than just on the weekends!

I'm so blessed to have been part of such an AMAZING school that has been a SCORE prize winner, a Reward school 3 years in a row that is doing what is best for the kids. I will miss seeing my past students' every day, but I know they are in good hands!

I love this picture collage Ashleigh made me... I will treasure it forever friend! <3

I know this is a sappy post, but I really hope I am able to post some fun Pre-K stuff next year. So excited for my next adventure! Happy Summer Break friends!
