April 2015 in Review

Posted April 30, 2015 in Faith, Reading / 2 Comments

This year is flying by. I can hardly believe that April is over already!

Things that Happened in April

  • My birthday!! I even got books for my birthday which greatly surprised me. Thanks so much, little sister!
  • Easter! I was able to attend one of my most favorite Masses of the entire Church year, the Easter Vigil! (Who doesn’t like candles and a three hour Mass?)
  • Field trips with the school kids! The bus rides are a bit longer than the ones where I grew up but we are in the-middle-of-nowhere, Montana.
  • Yesterday evening one of the sixth grade teachers passed away. It will be a terribly rough day today with the students. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Things I’m Looking Forward to in May

  •  My sister’s birthday is in May.
  • Pentecost is coming up at the end of May as well as Trinity Sunday.
  • The last full month of the school year! Hopefully it won’t drag. Much as I love my job, the students need their break and so do I.
